CFP: Evaluation of Digital Libraries (Library Hi Tech)

CFP: Evaluation of Digital Libraries (Library Hi Tech)

Library Hi Tech seeks authors for a theme issue on the “Evaluation of Digital Libraries". Authors may present substantial studies with formal methodologies and detailed results, or may describe methodologies and techniques for evaluation. The latter can be illustrated with actual examples, including ones involving collaborative projects, but need not emphasize any particular digital library.

Evaluation is a broad topic that can have to do with the look and feel of the Web presence, the content and mix of content, the technologies used to manage the digital library, legal issues, or long-term stability (including archiving). Authors should feel free to interpret the theme

Articles for Library Hi Tech should be 4000-8000 words long and should follow the Emerald style guide . Library Hi Tech is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal that is indexed in Current Contents/Social and Behavioral Sciences, Social Sciences Citation Index, Social Scisearch and Journal Citation Reports/Social Sciences Edition.

Those interested in contributing should submit a brief (300 word) abstract to Michael Seadle. E-mail: by 30 November 2006. Articles would be due in March 2007. Articles must be in English in their final form.
