Call for Papers - Collection Management (peer-reviewed journal)

The first issue of the quarterly peer-review journal /Collection Management/ under the Editorship of ALCTS member Faye Chadwell is now off-press, and welcomes the submission of papers for review and possible publication. Ms. Chadwell is Head of Collection Development and Acquisition, Oregon State University. She has taken over the editorial reins from long-time editor, Ed Shreeves, Associate University Librarian and Director, Collections & Content Development at the University of Iowa Libraries.

Interested authors may correspond with the Editor for instructions for authors and upcoming deadlines by sending an email to

According to Chadwell: "Nothing in my crystal ball suggests that libraries will not continue to collect materials in the coming years. What will change is the amount and availability of
resources, the type of materials, the method of acquisitions, and the ways in which collections are used.... Collection Management seeks well-researched, refereed articles and reviews that cover
an extensive range of pragmatic and theoretical topics."

The new issue includes articles on:
--"What's Next for Collection Management and Managers?"
--"Confirming Suspicions: An Analysis of Original Communication Studies Journal Price Data"
--"Citation Analysis of Graduate Dental These References: Implications for Collection Development"
