The question of versioning publications in JSON-LD is equivalent to that for versioning RDF in general. There are a couple of different vocabularies that might be useful for this:

PROV - http://www.w3.org/TR/prov-o/ This is the vocabulary used for the general RDF Provenance model which includes mechanism to describe versions (revisions) and related information in something similar to the Git branching model.

Bibo - http://bibliontology.com. The Bibo vocabulary is generally used for describing bibliographic sources and references, including concepts such as bibo:isVersionOf .

You might also model different versions using schema.org/PublicationEvent. CreativeWork -> releasedEvent -> PublicationEvent.

There’s also a Quora question on this: https://www.quora.com/Resource-Description-Framework/What-is-the-best-practice-for-versioning-RDF-information.
