“Engaging Disability: Social Science Perspectives on Information and Inclusion”

The International Journal of Information, Diversity, & Inclusion (IJIDI) invites submissions for a special issue focused on social scientific perspectives on information and disability inclusion and empowerment. We welcome full research papers that make a novel contribution to this area of research; this may be empirical, theory-based, methodological, and/or practical in nature, and we encourage international perspectives and collaborations. We will also have a special section for student work, works in progress, opinion pieces, and professional reports.

Extended abstracts of up to 1,000 words for full research papers and up to 500 words for contributions to the special section are due by 31 October 2018. Authors will be notified of acceptance in mid-November, and final papers will be due by 1 March 2019.
We seek submissions from different disciplines and perspectives for this special issue of IJIDI. The goal of this special issue is to bring together researchers who focus specifically on Engaging Disability. Topics and themes related to disability and information access may include, but will not be limited to:

  • Physical, intellectual, and socio-cultural barriers and supports related to disability, information access, and inclusion
  • Analysis of international information policy considerations of disability
  • Hidden/invisible/latent disability
  • Engaging and including disability in libraries, museums, archives, and other information organizations
  • Disability and employment in LIS
  • Disability and higher education in LIS
  • Faculty and librarians with disabilities: Is technology inclusive or exclusive?
  • Accessibility and usability (broadly conceived)
  • Children and youth with disabilities in the context of information concepts

Practical Technology for Archives: On Hiatus

From the Editor: Journal on Hiatus

The Editorial Board of Practical Technology for Archives and I are to sad announce that we will not be able to publish any issues for the foreseeable future. Due to work constraints I no longer have the time to act as the Managing Editor. No one else on the board has the time to do so either. I guess that is just the reality of Archives at this time.

I will keep this site live for as long as I can.

I would like to thank the Editorial Board, not only for all the work the members have done over the few years we have been publishing, but also for getting this journal off the ground in the first place. So, a hearty and heart-felt “Thank You” to Leah Prescott, Martha McTear, Michael Szajewski, and especially Trevor Thornton (who has managed this site from the beginning). This journal never would have been without you.

All the Best,
Randall Miles
Managing Editor
