  • 1.  Library Leadership and Management journal call for Special Issue

    Posted Mar 30, 2023 05:30 PM

    Library Leadership and Management, an ALA Core publication and a double-blind, peer-reviewed journal, is soliciting submissions for both peer-reviewed and editor-reviewed featured articles for our special issue on library organizational design. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    • Re-organization case studies

    • Library organizational structures

    • Specific organizational structures around liaison programs, specific services, or similar

    • How libraries as organizations support remote and hybrid work

    We strongly encourage proposals from individuals of all ethnicities, races, countries of origin, gender identities and expressions, ages, abilities, religions, sexual orientations, economic backgrounds, scholarly and professional backgrounds and experiences, types and sizes of institutions, and other differences. We are committed to amplifying and highlighting lived experiences from these different perspectives as they relate to leadership and management.

    Articles accepted for submission are anticipated to be published in the final issue for 2023. The submission deadline is May 1st, but we will accept submissions on a rolling basis for inclusion in future issues. Please send preliminary expressions of interest via this form

    Instructions for Authors and other journal information can be found here. Thank you,
