Are you sad your proposal wasn't accepted to Code4Lib Conference?
Please consider submitting it as an article to Code4Lib Journal instead!
In fact, you can submit something as an article even if you are
presenting at the conf too -- but especially if you aren't, getting an
article published in the Journal can be an alternate way to get your
ideas out to the Code4Lib audience -- maybe get them out to even more
people than would see them at the conference, and in something that
stays on the web for future generations of system librarians too!
It isn't neccesarily that much harder to prepare an article than to
prepare a presentation. Whatever you would have included in your
presentation, you just need to set it down in narrative text instead. It
needs to be clear and legible, and we won't just take a slide deck as an
article -- but we do accept articles written informally, if they are
clear and convey good information, and articles can include screenshot
and screencast components.
Share what you're doing with your peers, at the Code4Lib Journal! There
are a number of proposed presentations that didn't make the cut, that I
would have liked learning about -- I hope you submit them as articles to
the Journal instead!
We accept submissions at any time, on a rolling basis, as either
abstracts or first drafts:
Although the next proposal cut-off date is Jan 7th, for the 20th issue
to be published in the spring. But don't procastinate and wait, avoid
the rush, get your proposal in now while it's fresh in your head!
