*Code4Lib Issue 42 Call for Papers (and apologies for cross-posting)*
The Code4Lib Journal (C4LJ) exists to foster community and share
information among those interested in the intersection of libraries,
technology, and the future.
We are now accepting proposals for publication in our 42nd issue. Don’t
miss out on this opportunity to share your ideas and experiences. To be
included in the 42nd issue, which is scheduled for publication in early
November, 2018, *please submit proposals to
<http://journal.code4lib.org/submit-proposal>** by Friday, August 3, 2018*.
The editorial committee will review all proposals and notify those accepted
by Friday, August 10, 2018. Please note that submissions are subject to
rejection or postponement at any point in the publication process as
determined by the Code4Lib Journal’s editorial committee.
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, or proposed), 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 earlier issues published on our website:
Send in a submission. Your peers would like to hear what you are doing.
