Subject: Call for articles for the Journal of Scholarly and Research Communication
The Journal of Scholarly and Research Communication is calling for
submissions for its fourth issue (Vol 2, No 2):
Scholarly and Research Communication is a peer-reviewed,
interdisciplinary, Open Access, online journal that publishes original
contributions to the understanding of production, dissemination, and
usage of knowledge. It emphasizes the dynamics of representation and
changing organizational elements, including technologically mediated
workflows, ownership, and legal structures. Contributions are welcomed
in all media and span formal research and analysis; technical reports
and demonstrations; commentary, and review.
Please feel free to contact Veronica Bonifacio
(veronica_bonifacio at sfu.ca) or Rowland Lorimer (lorimer at sfu.ca) if you
would like further guidelines in relation to the required content or
style of any of the sections detailed below.
Sections for which we are seeking submissions
SRC seeks well-researched articles which provide original insight and
which promote discussion in relation to the understanding of production,
dissemination, and usage of knowledge.
SRC looks for technical reports that have a wide implication for
scholarly communication, outlining a technical approach conceptually to
a workable technical solution related to online journal publication. The
article should provide the foundations, limitations, and recommendations
of research, with a call for public comment and scrutiny.
Commentaries are informed analyses of critical issues, encompassing a
broad set of initiatives in scholarly and research communication.
Book and Media Reviews
SRC is interested in book and media reviews from a wide variety of
scholars and students.
SRC is interested in publishing practical accounts of challenges faced
by individuals performing the work of scholarly publishing to facilitate
their sharing of experience and knowledge that they think would be
helpful to others.
While it is not our intent to set definitive boundaries, Field Notes
could encompass the following:
accounts of journal foundings
encouraging timely peer reviews
strategic planning with relationship to secondary aggregators
the development of performance measures
adapting to multiple formats
relationships with commercial publishers.
Articles may be 1,000 to 5,000 words.
