The Serials Librarian is currently seeking manuscripts on a rolling basis for the 2013 volume year.
* Case studies reporting how libraries/consortia acquire and manage content (in whatever format)
* Literature reviews tracing developments in the field (e.g., the history of copyright and legislation devised to prevent "piracy")
* Annotated bibliographies to aid collection development decisions (e.g., a selected list of government serials useful in urban studies)
* New models for library-publisher commerce beyond "the big deal"
* Procedural innovations in processing or organizing e-resources
* Reports on uses of tools such as ERM's, discovery products, etc., including ideas related to staffing workflows
* Open access, whether "green", "gold" or hybrid
* Peer review and the future of the journal gatekeeping function
* Studies of end-user ease of access
* Theoretical or speculative pieces addressing issues within the scope of the journal (e.g., does RDA adequately adjudicate concerns about serials title changes? )
Please note that we are also interested in finding interesting content for our existing set of columns and that proposals for an entirely new column are welcome.
All manuscripts should be submitted electronically to the journal's ScholarOne website: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/WSER
