Call for proposals for Innovation Column for 2021: Journal of New Librarianship

You are invited to submit a proposal for the Journal of New Librarianship’s On Innovation in Libraries column.

Innovations in a Time of Crisis and Complexity

Rogers (2003) defined innovation as an “idea, practice, or object that is perceived as new by an individual or other unit of adoption” (p. 12). Innovations may take place as social problems gain a position of high priority in response to heightened recognition of problems or needs (Rogers, 2003). As the Journal of New Librarianship completes its transition to OJS at CU Boulder, we are issuing a call for proposals for the column, On Innovation in Libraries. The theme for this cycle of column publications will explore the topic of library innovations in a time of crisis and complexity during which we have seen exacerbation of existing inequalities (Campbell, 2020). We invite you to share what this has looked like in your Library’s praxis.

Completed columns will be 1,500 – 3,000 words. Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals of 200-500 words on or before Monday, September 21, 2020. Authors will be notified by Wednesday, October 21, 2020 regarding the status of their proposals and to discuss a timeline for column submission, editorial review, and publication in early 2021 on our new OJS platform.

Please submit column proposals via this web form.
