New Issue: Comma

The next issue of Comma (2018:1-2) is a bumper special issue focusing on the work and impact of  archivists and archives  in university and research institutes
(subscription, membership)

The seventeen articles (twelve in English and five in Spanish) originate from the 2018 ICA-SUV/Conferencia de Archiveros de las Universidades Españolas [Conference of Spanish University Archivists] conference,  “What value do historical records in University Archives add to Universities?” They are arranged here under four main themes :   the Identity of university archives, the Pace of  archives in the university community, the Management of archival records, and the Dissemination of the university archival heritage .

The special issue editors,  Miguel Ángel Jaramillo Guerreira and Caroline Brown, identify ideas about   “identity” as  the  common thread which runs  throughout  the issue. How archivists conceive their own identity, and that of the archives themselves,  is evident in articles which discuss  the changing roles of archive services   within the  institutions and their wider communities, or the roles which archivists themselves play, notably that of the archivist-activist.

New Journal: Journal of Library Outreach and Engagement

The inaugural call for papers is not yet out, but there is an announcement about a new open access journal and archives is included in the type of content.

Journal of Library Outreach and Engagement

Focus and Scope

The mission of the Journal of Library Outreach & Engagement (JLOE) is to serve as the premier peer-reviewed, open access interdisciplinary journal to advance library outreach and engagement. JLOE provides a platform to disseminate original research that examines public and community engagement initiatives and stimulates a forum to discuss the methodological and epistemological issues that inform, or emerge from, such projects and programs.

Frequency and Schedule of Publication

We will publish two issues per year, one fall and one spring issue. Each issue will contain a letter from the editor(s), a minimum of four scholarly articles, and optionally a handful of “Idea Lab” and “Notes from the Field” columns, and/or book reviews.

Types of Content Included

We welcome articles or editorials that present original research, case studies, or comparable material that advance library outreach and engagement discussions. Authors and their submissions represent libraries of all types, including academic, public, school, and special libraries and archives.

Scholarly Review

Scholarly submissions will undergo a double-blind peer review process.

Open Access and Copyright Policies

The Editors and Editorial Board of JLOE strongly encourages authors to publish the Work under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license (CC BY 4.0) that allows others to distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon the Work, even commercially, as long as they credit the Author for the original creation. The Author may however choose to have the Work distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International license (CC BY-NC 4.0).
