Partnership: the Canadian Journal of Library and Information Practice
and Research is extending its deadline for the peer review submissions
for the Spring 2009 issue to Monday February 16th, 2009. 


Innovations in Practice


This section will publish articles of 1000-4000 words that describe new
initiatives and analyze their outcomes. Articles in this section will
undergo a double blind peer review process before publication. Let
others know how you put your best ideas into practice, and what lessons
can be learned from the experience. Articles should include enough
background to create a context for the general reader, and local
acronyms and specialized terminology should be kept to a minimum or
clearly explained.


Theory and Research


May include, but are not limited to, theoretical issues surrounding
philosophies, policies and trends in all types of library and
information environments. Research articles can be either quantitative
or qualitative in nature. Empirical models (evidence-based or
experimental techniques) and exploratory models of investigation are
welcome. Articles should be 1500-5000 words and will be subject to a
double blind peer review process.


Conference Spotlight


These contributions, based on presentations at Canadian library or
library-related conferences, may be nominated by anyone in the library
community at large. Submissions could also be recommended by members of
the Editorial Board. Presenters will be contacted and invited to prepare
and send a submission. Up to three items will ultimately be selected by
the section editor for peer review for any issue of the journal. Topics
may range from theoretical to technological highlights to view points to
new practices. The format may also range widely including but not
limited to videorecordings, online posters and formal papers. The length
of the article will be guided by the format. Text-based submissions
should be 1,000 to 4,000 words. Videorecordings would normally be 15 to
60 minutes. International presenters are welcome.  Keep this section in
mind if you are attending OLA SuperConference next week!
