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.
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.
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
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!
