Current Call for Papers

School Libraries Worldwide Volume 23, Number 1 (January 2017)


CALL FOR PAPERS

School Libraries Worldwide welcomes submissions of excellent research on any topic relating to school librarianship for the open portion of the journal. School library researchers are invited to submit papers reporting their own original research that has not been published elsewhere. We are especially interested in research that documents school librarianship in a wide range of cultures, geographic locations, and/or diversities.

For the January 2017 issue, School Libraries Worldwide’s editors are especially interested in papers in which policy is an aspect of the research. Because formal and information policies exist in community, school, governmental, and national contexts, they often influence the work of educators and learners. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

• National and local funding distribution policies;

• Privacy and intellectual freedom policies;

• Technology use and management policies;

• School scheduling and facilities policies;

• Governmental and legislative mandates that affect librarians and libraries;

• Codes of conduct and ethics; and

• Inclusion and diversity legislation;


Deadline for submissions of full papers: October 15, 2016

Authors interested in contributing to this issue should contact the editors, Marcia Mardis (mmardis@fsu.edu) and Nancy Everhart (everhart@fsu.edu).

Submission guidelines are available online at: http://iasl-online.org/publications/slw/contributors.html

Note that all submissions must take place through the online submission system at: http://slw.cci.fsu.edu
