Call for Papers New Review of Academic Librarianship - Supporting Researchers

Last year I took on the exciting and somewhat daunting task of editing a special issue of New Review of Academic Librarianship.  It's a peer-reviewed journal and there are generally three open issues and one themed or special issue per year.  The call for papers for the 2016 themed issue - librarian as communicator - elicited a lot of interest and it was decided that it would be a double issue.  There are 18 contributions from four continents and there will be a launch in October - more to follow on that.

The call for contributions for the 2017 themed issued has just gone out.  It's about supporting research

You can view the call here
