Consider submitting proposals for articles, book & software reviews,
code snippets & algorithms, conference reports, opinion pieces, etc.
to Code4Lib Journal. See:
Code4Lib Journal strives to fill a communication niche above simple
description of software implementations but below pure theoretical
digital library investigation. The editorial board is looking for
content that is practical, demonstrates how to exploit technology to
create digital library collections and services, or offers insight
and forethought regarding the use of computers in any type of library
setting. While articles in the journal should be of a high quality,
they need not follow any formal structure or guidelines. Writers
should aim for the middle ground between, on the one hand, blog or
mailing-list posts, and, on the other hand, articles in traditional
journals. We want publishing in the journal to be easy and painless,
helping the community to share timely, relevant information that is
currently shared all too rarely.
The inaugural issue of Code4Lib Journal is well underway and set for
publication in December. The second issue is not quite full. The due
date for proposals is Friday, November 9, 2007 with a publication
date in late March, 2008. The Journal welcomes submissions at any
time on a rolling acceptance basis, but this is the deadline to be
sure to make the 2nd issue.
Send in a submission. Your peers would like to hear what you are doing.
Eric Lease Morgan and the Editorial Committee
