Call for Manuscripts: Internet Reference Services Quarterly

Call for Manuscripts: Internet Reference Services Quarterly

Are you doing something innovative? Are you currently using Internet technology to enhance the experiences of your staff or your users? Have you actively analyzed trends in the use or application of Internet technologies? We want you to share your results with our readers!

Internet Reference Services Quarterly (IRSQ), a peer-reviewed journal published by The Haworth Press, Inc., welcomes the submission of manuscripts for its next issue. Don't let the word "reference" in the title fool you. IRSQ highlights the theory and practice behind emerging Internet services, sources and resources in all areas of librarianship. Research-based studies, case studies of successful services or programs, and authoritative articles highlighting best practices are welcome.

We are particularly interested in manuscripts covering the following topics: blogs, cataloging issues for Internet and digital resources, copyright law, integration of library services into course management systems, digital collections and digital object repositories, information services for cell phones, iPods or PDAs, Internet security, issues of privacy on the Internet, library web site innovations, plagiarism, podcasting, streaming video and audio projects and wikis.

Submissions should follow the Haworth guidelines for manuscript format and preparation available at All submissions should be accompanied by a Manuscript Submission and Copyright Transfer form, available at

To be considered for publication in the journal 's next issue, Vol. 11, No. 4, the due date for submission of manuscripts is April 14, 2006. For more information or manuscript submission questions, please contact Christopher Cox at or at the address below.
