The Association for Library and Information Science Education (ALISE) is now accepting proposals for its 2017 Methodology Paper Competition, sponsored by ProQuest. The purpose of this award is to stimulate communication on research methodologies at ALISE annual conferences. The competition is open to all types of methodology. Papers must be limited to description and discussion of a research method or a technique associated with a particular research method. (For example, papers may address such areas as sampling, grounded theory, historical methods, or statistical methods.) Papers must explain the particular method/technique, including methodological implications for library and information science. Examples to illustrate its value can come from LIS-related published studies, proposed studies, and works in progress. Papers that stress findings are not eligible for this competition.
Deadline for submissions: September 22, 2016
