InPrint Publishing Opportunities for College Librarians.
Livingston, Lynn W., Ed.; Bahr, Alice Harrison, Comp.; McLane, Michael J., Comp.
Directed specifically to the needs of college librarians, this book addresses publishing opportunities for aspiring writers at all levels, from graduate students and entry-level staff to experienced directors and researchers. It includes journals that cover areas of concern in small academic libraries as well as those focused on issues at larger colleges, and publications that seek "chatty" and/or practical pieces as well as those interested in reporting formal studies and the results of research projects. The book identifies publishing opportunities in library and information science literature, as well as publishing opportunities in higher education, computer technology and other related areas. Entries for each publication include a description of the editorial policy, topics covered, style, audience, and contact information. Lists show journal acceptance rates, refereed journals, refereed journals by acceptance rates, and special publishing opportunities in columns and book reviews. Appended are the publication survey form, list of journals surveyed, a statement of the research agenda for college librarianship, and a description of the ACRL Research Committee Mentoring Project. (Contains 14 references.) (Author/SWC)
