Call for Articles: Academic BRASS Newsletter (Business Librarianship)

Interested in seeing your name in print? Want to add another line to your c.v.?
Have something to share with other business librarians?

The Business Reference in Academic Libraries Committee of BRASS is seeking articles for the next issue of its online publication Academic BRASS. Academic BRASS is a newsletter--not a journal--that publishes issue-based articles and information for the general and educational interest of BRASS members and academic business librarians.

Topics of interest to the editors are pedagogy and business librarians, teaching business literacy in the wake of the financial crisis and resources for entrepreneurship. Book and database reviews are always welcome as well.

Maybe you have another cool idea – that’s fine too – get those submissions in!

You may want to see previous editions of BRASS.

For the full text of these articles and access to past issues of Academic BRASS, see

The typical length of an Academic BRASS article is 500-800 words, but past articles have been as long as 1,000 words or more. Authors should be guided by what they have to say rather than an arbitrary word length. All articles are subject to editing for length, style, and content. The newsletter follows the Modern Language Association Handbook, seventh edition for all matters of style and citation. Authors whose articles include references to print or internet resources should observe the conventions set forth in the handbook or on the
MLA web site (
