Re: CALL FOR PAPERS: Electronic Journal Management Systems: Experiences from the Field Virginia Lingle 11 May 2004 19:01 UTC

Hello Gary,
We have just signed the license for the EBSCO AtoZ and LinkSource products and will be working to implement them starting in June.  Would you be interested in an article about that process and the transition from our static Web page list?  When I say "we", I mean that I work at a medical school library that is separate from the main university libraries, but we participate in joint contracts for electronic journals with the main campus.  Though we are a medium-sized medical school, we have access to over 3,000 electronic journals and urgently need to do something to better capture usage statistics and manage links.  If you are interested, I would be glad to further discuss the scope of the article with you.  I would be glad to forward a copy of my CV if needed as well.
Thank you for your consideration,
Gin Lingle

My apologies for any cross posts.

This is a call for papers for a special theme issue of the journal The
Serials Librarian (Haworth, ISSN: 0361-526X, Jim Cole, Editor),
tentatively entitled Electronic Journal Management Systems: Experiences
from the Field, which I am guest editing.

We are looking for papers which deal with the emergence, development,
and implementation of, and experiences with, what might broadly be
called electronic journal management systems, whether home-grown or
commercial.  This includes (but would not be limited to) any system
which manages any part of the electronic journal acquisition process,
license record-keeping (including ILL provisions), web maintenance (such
as A-Z lists), and link resolver systems.  Final copy of accepted
articles are due no later than August 1, 2004.

For Haworth's "Instructions for Authors", you may view at

Some basics for this journal:

Manuscript style: Chicago Style
Manuscript length: 5-50 typed pages
Notes: Articles must be written in English. If the article is a
translation from another language, a copy of the article in the original
language should also be submitted if possible.

Please don't hesitate to call or email if you have any questions.  I
will be at both NASIG and ALA if you'd like to touch base in person.
