LIBRARY HI TECH NEWS -- Call for Papers

LIBRARY HI TECH NEWS -- Call for Papers

Library Hi Tech News (LHTN, published by Emerald, is an established (1984+) print and online monthly journal that quickly publishes articles of interest on developments in library technology to our international readership. Although not formally peer reviewed, LHTN is indexed in
Library and Information Science Abstracts (LISA), Library, Information Science and Technology Abstracts (LISTA), Scopus, INSPEC, Current Index to Journals in Education and others.

For more information and sample articles, please see:

LHTN is interested in articles of varying lengths, reports from relevant conferences, and case studies. The editors will work with authors that are new to LIS publishing, and those who are seeking outlets for reporting on practical uses of IT in libraries. Publishing your article in LHTN can be a place to start, analogous to a poster session in print” and does not preclude publishing a more fulsome piece in a peer-reviewed journal at a later date.
