Call for Papers and New Reviewers: Reference Services Review (RSR) Journal

  • 1.  Call for Papers and New Reviewers: Reference Services Review (RSR) Journal

    Posted Sep 25, 2023 01:17 PM

    Happy Peer Review Week! The Reference Services Review (RSR) journal invites submissions for papers exploring a wide range of reference, public, and user services topics. As you may know, the RSR is an international, peer-reviewed journal that focuses on current research, practice, and trends in library reference, user, and public services.


    RSR publishes manuscripts from a range of library and information science perspectives. Research in all types of libraries, archives, and museums is welcome. We welcome submissions in the following categories: viewpoint, technical paper, conceptual paper, case study, literature review, and general review. 


    In addition to seeking papers, we are also looking for enthusiastic professionals to join our team of peer reviewers. We are looking for professionals who can help us achieve this goal with a range of experience and expertise beyond traditional "reference," particularly seeking reviewers in all aspects of user and public services, including (but not limited to) teaching and learning, information, and related literacies (multimedia, digital, etc.), accessibility and inclusion, engagement, and digital scholarship. 


    We especially seek reviewers who work in public, school, and community college libraries to help us diversify our reviewer pool. We also encourage applications from reviewers who identify as members of traditionally marginalized groups and want to contribute to the scholarly conversation to apply or submit a paper.


    We hope you will consider publishing your work in the RSR journal and helping us maintain the highest quality research by becoming a peer reviewer. If you are interested in submitting a paper or becoming a peer reviewer for RSR, we invite you to visit our website for more details.
