CFP: Journal of Scholarly Publishing - Special Issue on Open Access

Journal of Scholarly Publishing
Special Issue: Open Access
Alex Holzman, co-editor
Robert Brown, co-editor
Marguerite Avery, guest co-editor

Deadline: March 15, 2017

Send all submissions to:

Open access has evolved into a social movement and gained traction in the scholarly community as an important cause. Yet its impact has so far been limited due to its fragmented messaging, inconsistent policies, and sometimes fractious discussions. Although open access stands to affect scholarly publishing as a whole, its proper implementation and cost-benefit effect on scholarship remain unsettled
issues. Before we can agree on the viability of open access, we need more input from all parties with a stake in its outcome.

For a special issue of the Journal of Scholarly Publishing (volume 48, number 4, October 2017), the co-editors invite submissions from those engaged with open access who can shed light on this economic and moral concept now playing out across the scholarly communication ecosystem. We welcome submissions from anyone with insight into how open access publishing works, or could work: that includes publishers, librarians, scholars, editors, lawyers, technologists, university administrators, and government employees.

Suggested submissions include the following:

  • case studies of open access projects, initiatives, and ventures
  • analyses of open access policies and practices across disciplines and publication types, publishers, and users
  • discussions of the push for open access from public policy mandates (e.g., NIH, NEH, NSF), private foundations, libraries, and authors
  • critiques of access to scholarly content and higher education, e.g., the global geography of unequal access to knowledge
  • considerations of how open access affects methods of assessing research impact (using traditional metrics and altmetrics) or evaluating candidates for tenure and promotion
  • legal and historical inquires into intellectual property, copyright, and the commons as pertaining to open access and Creative Commons licensing
  • evaluations of the impact of open access options on the distribution and marketing of books and journals
  • assessments of sustainable business models
  • proposals for changes to the ways scholars, librarians, and publishers work together, both within and across these professional categories
  • reviews of books or other publications about open access

Submissions may be from 1500 to 6000 words, excluding references, tables, and figures. The co-editors and one outside referee will review all submissions, and those reviewed will be sent back to the authors with queries for revision. Publication will be contingent on
authors satisfactorily resolving all queries. Other requirements for manuscript preparation are available at

The Journal of Scholarly Publishing has been published since 1969 by the University of Toronto Press.   It is indexed by Project MUSE, Academic Search Complete, and Computers & Applied Sciences Complete.

How will we chart our future course through the complexities of serials and electronic resources to guide our users forward? How can data help to ensure more robust connections across the information supply chain?

Proposals may address any related aspect of the serials industry or serials management and may be submitted by any member of the serials profession including publishers, vendors, librarians, staff, and students.
Proposals should be submitted using this form. The deadline for submissions is Friday, December 9, 2016.
Proposals will require the following information:
1. Contact details (including your name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address)

Call for Chapters: Credit-bearing Information Literacy Courses: Critical Approaches

Call for chapter proposals
Working title: Credit-bearing Information Literacy Courses: Critical Approaches

Critical librarianship understands the work of libraries and librarians to be fundamentally political and situated in systems of power and oppression. This approach requires that information literacy instruction expand its scope beyond straightforward demonstrations of tools and search mechanics and towards more in-depth conceptual work that asks questions about, among other things, the conditions of information production, presumptions of neutrality, and institutionalized oppression.

The goal of this book is to examine those critical approaches specifically in the context of credit-bearing courses. This will be useful to librarians who have struggled to find literature and case studies that directly address the unique features of teaching a credit-bearing course, including course and lesson planning, designing formative and summative assessment measures that address course-level learning outcomes, and building rapport with students.

Contributed chapters will discuss some of the ways these concepts have been developed, implemented, and assessed in various course contexts. Those who teach information literacy courses draw from many influences, including (but not limited to) literacy studies, social justice work, and sociological and anthropological approaches. This book will highlight the diversity of possibilities for implementing a critical approach to teaching information literacy in credit-bearing courses.

The book will include both discussions of conceptual approaches and case studies. Contributed chapters will be divided into appropriate sections, based on their foci.

We invite chapters on topics including, but not limited to, the following, within the context of a credit-bearing class:
  • Feminist/anti-racist/anti-colonial approaches to curriculum development
  • Critical approaches to grading and assessment
  • Unique challenges and opportunities of incorporating a critical approach in a credit course vs. one-shot/course-integrated instruction session
  • Critical reflection about instructor positionality vis-a-vis critical content and/or relationship to students
  • Conceptions of neutrality and objectivity with regard to information literacy and potentially controversial (and/or political) subject matter
  • Difficulty of critical approaches in a stand alone information literacy course (and/or criticisms of the credit-bearing mode of instruction)
  • Approaches that critique the academy and/or higher education and the neoliberal discourses that shape it
  • Reflections on the process of adopting a critical approach, whether shifting the content to critical information literacy or adopting other practices from critical pedagogies (like eschewing the banking model of education, breaking down hierarchies, incorporating social justice, etc)
Proposal submission guidelines:
  • Abstract of up to 500 words - submit as a google document shared with
  • Author/s CV - email to

Please feel free to email the editors with any questions about the suitability of proposal ideas or the scope of the publication.

  • Proposals (up to 500 words) due February 27
  • Notifications sent out by March 17
  • Completed manuscripts (tentatively 3,000-6,000 words) due June 30

Call for Chapters: Library as Technology Facilitator (LITA Guide)

Call for Chapters

The role of the library as technology facilitator has been well established by the efforts of library professionals over the last decade. Yet libraries still have vastly differing resource levels, leading to some libraries providing more access to emerging technologies than others. People from rural communities, urban areas, the poor, and new immigrants are just some of the populations who are not being exposed to technology in meaningful and substantive ways. How do we level the technology playing field, and how do libraries act as a vector for that?

Has your library addressed these issues? Have you made strides in addressing the broader digital divide and can you offer practical solutions to others who are looking to do the same? We are looking for case studies from practitioners who have been able to offer high quality technology and training for patrons and library systems. We are looking for proposals that address projects on the following themes, physical access, patron and staff training, makerspaces, technology for jobs and business, and tech industry partnerships. Proposals are welcome from varying communities, including both urban and rural areas. Proposals from authors of diverse backgrounds are encouraged.

Each chapter should include:

  • An explanation of the problem and community need, including demographics and geographical information about the community
  • A project summary, including budget, resources, methods and process
  • A description of how the project affected the community and lessons learned
  • Chapters may include up to 5 figures such as images or graphs

Proposals should include:
  • Author Name(s)
  • Brief author bio(s)
  • Proposed Chapter Title
  • A summary of the proposed chapter (300 – 500 words)

Proposals should be submitted to, and will be due January 1, 2017, drafts of chapters will be due May 1, 2017.

The book will be published as a LITA Guide with Rowman and Littlefield.

CFP: Innovation, Inspiration and Creativity Conference (i2c2) 2017 (Scarborough UK - November 2017)

 The call for papers for the Innovation, Inspiration and Creativity Conference (i2c2) 2017 is open!

We're going to bring together a bunch of people 13th to 15th November 2017 for a three day conference of inspiring each other to innovate and be more creative in our libraries. There will be talks, workshops, fun and games galore. We'll talk to each other about successes and challenges, thinking about how we can use what we learn from one another to improve libraries. This time it is all about making, playing, co-creating and will be in Scarborough on the gorgeous North Yorkshire coast. So bring your knotty hankies and expect lots of creative ideas, inspiration, and ice cream.

We are looking for people that can contribute their experiences and knowledge to the conference. The overall theme of the conference is Innovation, Inspiration and Creativity, with a subtheme this year of "making, playing, co-creating". This covers library and information work in any sector and anywhere in the world, along with associated professions.

There are some slots for presentations, but most conference slots are expected to be workshop based with a high degree of attendee involvement. So if you propose something longer than a lightning talk, think "can I help attendees learn something to apply to their own practice?" and not "can I put a set of slides together about a project I did".

We will have posters (possibly with a prize for best poster!), lightning talks (5 minutes), a small number of short presentations (20 minutes), interactive workshops (1 hour), and are also open to creative suggestions or alternatives. There are discounted (not free) places available for anyone accepted to run a workshop (1 per workshop), with a special link being sent out to any workshop proposals accepted.

Call closes May 2017 for full workshops, short presentations and "alternative" slots. Call closes early October 2017 for posters and lightning talks.

You can see some of the results of the last i2c2 in the conference book, 'Inspiring, Innovative and Creative Library Interventions: An i2c2 Compendium', available at:
