The Journal of Web Librarianship seeks both practical communications and original, scholarly research about relevant topics in web librarianship. This is a new journal to be published for the first time in early 2007. New authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts. Details can be found on the journal web page from the link above. They are seeking to publish:
- Scholarly research articles are usually 15-30 typed pages; contain original research or in-depth analysis of the literature; and feature a traditional structure for peer-reviewed journal articles.
- Practical communications may include tutorials; case studies, and descriptions of practical solutions to common problems. The length of practical communications will vary by topic, but should generally be at least 6 typed pages.
- Other types of articles such as interviews, bibliographies, and reviews may be welcome, but please contact the editor in advance.
Examples of topics appropriate for the Journal of Web Librarianship include but are not limited to: web page design, usability testing of library or library-related sites, cataloging or classification of Web information, international issues in web librarianship, scholars' use of the web, information architecture, library departmental web pages, RSS feeds, podcasting, library services via the web, search engines, history of libraries and the web, and future aspects of web librarianship.
