Library Diversity and Residency Studies: Journal Call for Papers

We are pleased to announce a call for papers for the next issue of Library Diversity and Residency Studies (LDRS), an open access, peer-reviewed journal founded and published by a team of librarians and LIS faculty members. LDRS publishes articles that are engaged in the social justice project of increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the library profession and in LIS curricula.

Journal URL: https://librarydiversity.institute/ldrs/
Author Guidelines: https://librarydiversity.institute/ldrs/author-guidelines/
Link to submit papers: https://librarydiversity.institute/ldrs/submit/

Deadline for submissions to the next issue is: September 15, 2020

LDRS is committed to providing a platform for the publication of work that might otherwise be marginalized from dominant discourses. We welcome work from established authors in the field, and also encourage submissions from new authors. We will prioritize submissions from minoritized voices, including submissions that represent diverse perspectives. We are committed to working with authors during the submission and review process.

We publish high quality, peer-reviewed articles in a range of formats, with a focus on DEI issues and residency programs. While we are open to suggestions for new article types and formats, We expect proposals to include unique and substantial new content from the author and are open to suggestions for new article types and formats. Examples of material we would publish include:

  • articles about particular DEI programs in libraries, with an objective assessment of strengths and weaknesses, the specific impacts of these programs, and strategies by which these programs could be replicated elsewhere;
  • rigorous and original research that includes discussion of implications and an argument for action that makes a unique, significant contribution to the professional literature;
  • articles arguing for a particular approach, strategy or development in librarianship, with practical examples of how it might be achieved;
  • transformative works with additional explanatory or interpretive content. For example, a transcription of an interview or panel discussion, with a substantial introduction explaining the importance of the subject to librarianship and a discussion; and
  • best practices to aid in the retention of librarians from minoritized populations.

Open Access Policy

LDRS is an open access publication. We believe making works that engage with DEI topics freely accessible will support a greater exchange of knowledge and provide the best possibility for change. There are no Article Processing Charges or any other charges associated with publishing in LDRS.

Works are released under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 Attribution-NonCommercial license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0), which provides unrestricted non-commercial use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Copyright remains with the authors of articles published in LDRS, with the journal retaining a permanent right to display articles in final accepted form. For further details, refer to the LDRS author guidelines (https://librarydiversity.institute/ldrs/author-guidelines/).

The Reading Room Ceases Publication

As of 2020, The Reading Room: A Journal of Special Collections has ceased publication. This scholarly journal was committed to providing current research and relevant discussion of practices in a special collections library setting. The Reading Room sought submissions from practitioners and students involved with working in special collections in museums, historical societies, corporate environments, public libraries and academic libraries. Topics included exhibits, outreach, mentorship, donor relations, teaching, reference, technical and metadata skills, social media, “Lone Arrangers”, management and digital humanities. The journal featured single-blind, peer-reviewed research articles and case studies related to all aspects of current special collections work.
