CFP: Journal of Map & Geography Libraries

CFP: Journal of Map & Geography Libraries


The Journal of Map & Geography Libraries is dedicated to gathering and sharing information regarding geospatial information in any format as it pertains to its collection, preservation, collocation, distribution and use. We are pleased to announce that in 2011, the journal is expanding to three issues per volume.

We welcome papers from librarians, cartographers, historians, geographers, or anyone who has a role in the lifespan of geospatial information (maps, atlases, globes, GIS, datasets, geospatial standards, cataloging/metadata, etc.). The content broadly addresses the role of libraries, however, related topics associated geospatial information are also appropriate.

As stated in our "Aims and Scope" > "The Journal of Map & Geography Libraries is where you'll find the most up-to-date international research and information on the production, procurement, processing, and utilization of geographic and cartographic materials and information. In this peer-reviewed forum---enhanced with full color illustrations---professors, researchers, and practicing librarians with a passion for geography and cartographic materials share their findings and experiences with their colleagues around the world."

All manuscripts are put through a rigorous double-blind review by a prestigious international review board. Once published, papers are widely available through Taylor & Francis' informaworld database and
other outlets.

We look forward to receiving inquiries and submissions from around the globe!
