Library Student Journal: Submission Guidelines
Revised 10/09/06

Authors should follow the instructions below when submitting articles and accompanying materials. Improperly submitted manuscripts may be refused without consideration.

Library Student Journal (LSJ) seeks to publish the best student papers from Library and Information Science (LIS) students worldwide and to serve as a forum for discussion of LIS education and training, career paths and future trends. Submissions may cover a wide range of topics, but should always relate to and advance the discussion of LIS topics. This is a rapidly evolving field. As such, LSJ especially encourages submissions relating to new technologies and future trends. Papers submitted to the peer-reviewed section of the journal should advance the existing literature with original ideas or original research.

Interested in volunteering with LSJ? Library and Information Science students with some time left in their degree programs are needed—get in touch with us at [email protected] and let us know with what you would like to get involved. Editorial board members may be needed soon, and UB students will be needed as staff members as existing staff prepare for graduation. We look forward to welcoming you on board!
