CFP: Code4lib journal

CFP: code4lib journal

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
