Call for Submissions:
The Code4Lib Journal (C4LJ) exists to foster community and share
information among those interested in the intersection of libraries,
technology, and the future.
The Code4Lib Journal is now accepting proposals for publication in its
5th issue. Don't miss out on this opportunity to share your ideas and
experiences in an issue that marks the first full year of publication
for this new journal. To be included in the 5th issue, scheduled for
publication in December 2008, please submit articles, abstracts, or
proposals to [log in to unmask] by Friday, September 12,
2008. When submitting, please include the title or subject of the
proposal in the subject line of the message.
C4LJ encourages creativity and flexibility, and the editors welcome
submissions across a broad variety of topics that support the mission of
the journal. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
* Practical applications of library technology (both actual and
* Technology projects (failed, successful, proposed, or
in-progress), including how they were done and challenges faced
* Case studies
* Best practices
* Comparisons of third party software or libraries
* Analyses of library metadata for use with technology
* Project management and communication within the library environment
* Assessment and user studies
C4LJ strives to promote professional communication by minimizing the
barriers to publication. While articles should be of a high quality,
they need not follow any formal structure. Writers should aim for the
middle ground between blog posts and articles in traditional refereed
journals. Where appropriate, we encourage authors to submit code
samples, algorithms, and pseudo-code. For more information, visit
C4LJ's Article Guidelines or browse articles from the first 3 issues
published on our website: http://journal.code4lib.org. The 4th issue
will be available in September.
Remember, for consideration for the 5th issue, please send proposals,
abstracts, or draft articles to [log in to unmask] no later
than Friday, September 12, 2008.
Send in a submission. Your peers would like to hear what you are doing.
