Writing It up: Getting Your LIS Research out There
Kennan, Mary Anne; Olsson, Michael R.
Australian Academic & Research Libraries, v42 n1 p14-28 Mar 2011
This paper grew out of a presentation at the "Research for LIS Practitioners Workshop" organised by the ALIA Research Committees and held at the State Library of New South Wales. The workshop was a satellite event of the Information Online Conference. The goal of the workshop was to encourage practitioner research and publication in the LIS community and the goal of this paper is, (in common with the presentation it grew from), to assist beginning LIS practitioner researchers by providing introductory information and tips about how to write up research for dissemination and publication. Basic information is provided about the components of a research report, and the different approaches required for different audiences and types of publication. In addition, some personal observations about the practicalities of writing are provided. This paper provides practitioner researchers with a starting point for writing up their research. (Contains 15 footnotes.)
