        Subject: Call for articles for the Journal of Scholarly and Research Communication

Hi all,

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.

Technical Reports

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.

Field Notes

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
financial management
encouraging timely peer reviews
strategic planning with relationship to secondary aggregators
legal issues
the development of performance measures
adapting to multiple formats
relationships with commercial publishers.

Articles may be 1,000 to 5,000 words.
