Call for GODORT Occasional Paper Series work

Dear Colleagues

Are you looking to make a professional contribution? Have you been toying around with a publication idea but not sure where it belongs?

Consider writing a GODORT Occasional Paper!

In 2009, the GODORT Publications Committee created an Occasional Paper Series.  The papers we have accepted are posted online on the GODORT wiki, where they receive a good amount of exposure. The paper outlook is crisp and professional:  ISSNs, creative commons licensing and a great look and feel.   Please check out their home on the GODORT wiki.


While there, take a look at papers that have been written so far.

Please consider submitting a paper.  The guidelines are straightforward.  We do expect professional quality submissions.  Materials considered for inclusion must pertain to some aspect of government information (e.g., local, state, federal, international). The series was created to serve as a place for GODORT members to publish lengthy articles (average length: 7500 words) as well as other materials such as bibliographies, short articles, reports, preliminary research, etc.

I hope to receive submissions from you soon.  The deadline for submission this round will be July 1, 2013.
