call for papers

Call for articles & ideas


Journal call for papers from Library Hi Tech News
Library Hi Tech News is a non-refereed journal and quickly publishes articles that are reviews of technologies, products, websites, and software; case studies; conference reports; mini-tutorials; and research in progress. For work in progress, think of your article as a “poster session in print.” Writing for LHTN does not preclude publishing your completed work in a refereed journal later on.

Some examples of topics of particular interest include:
Google Chrome: Web Browser and Operating System
Library Uses of Skype
