    September 27th, 2011LISWire aggregatorLISWire

    Call for Papers (and apologies for cross-posting):

    The Code4Lib Journal (C4LJ) exists to foster community and share
    information among those interested in the intersection of libraries,
    technology, and the future.

    We are now accepting proposals for publication in our 16th issue.
    Don't miss out on this opportunity to share your ideas and experiences.
    To be included in the 16th issue, which is scheduled for publication
    in late January, 2012, please submit articles, abstracts, or proposals at or to
    by Friday, October 28, 2011.  When submitting, please include the title
    or subject of the proposal in the subject line of the email message.

    C4LJ encourages creativity and flexibility, and the editors welcome
    submissions across a broad variety of topics that support the mission
    of the journal.  Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

    * Practical applications of library technology (both actual and
    * Technology projects (failed, successful, or proposed), including
     how they were done and challenges faced
    * Case studies
    * Best practices
    * Reviews
    * Comparisons of third party software or libraries
    * Analyses of library metadata for use with technology
    * Project management and communication within the library environment
    * Assessment and user studies

    C4LJ strives to promote professional communication by minimizing the
    barriers to publication.  While articles should be of a high quality,
    they need not follow any formal structure.  Writers should aim for the
    middle ground between blog posts and articles in traditional refereed
    journals.  Where appropriate, we encourage authors to submit code
    samples, algorithms, and pseudo-code.  For more information, visit
    C4LJ's Article Guidelines or browse articles from the first 14 issues
    published on our website:

    Remember, for consideration for the 16th issue, please send proposals,
    abstracts, or draft articles to no later than
    Friday, October 28, 2011.

    Send in a submission.  Your peers would like to hear what you are doing.
