Developing your CONUL Conference Presentation into an article

Presentations from the CONUL 2016 Conference are now available
If you presented at the conference consider developing your presentation into an article.  Issue 68 of  SCONUL Focus (copy due end of October) will be on innovation in teaching and learning. Articles should be between 1,500 and 2,000 words.   I'm on the editorial board so please e-mail me if you require further information.  Issue 69 of SCONUL Focus will be on supporting research.  Copy due end of February.

SCONUL Focus is a professional practice-based journal.

If you are interested in writing a longer research-based article, the call for abstracts/propsals for a themed issue of New Review of Academic Librarianship on supporting research has been issued.  The closing date for abstracts/proposals is 30th June.   I was editor of this year's themed issue and would recommend that if you are putting in an abstract you emphasise the innovative aspect of what you are doing.  Also if you are doing a case study (which is acceptable) it needs to be grounded in research i.e. set in the context of the literature on the topic.

If you are new to academic writing you might find this article helpful.

Happy Writing
