Editor's Note                                                           65

Libraries and repositories are best measured on the grey scale by the collections and e-publications they house. Likewise, the types of documents that embody grey literature are the easiest way to describe this expanding field of information. Traditionally, reports were the mainstay of grey literature; however, a study carried out last year based on citation data indicates that report literature is rapidly loosing its lead to other types of grey literature such as conference and web papers. As this trend in usage sets forth, the grey publishing industry has already shifted and is adjusting to new demands from information professionals and net-users.

In the first article, Schöpfel makes further observations on the future of grey literature. He sees the need for a new definition, and new economic model. His article is then followed by Gelfand’s, which zooms in on the way grey literature is used in education sciences. Her emphasis on evidenced based teaching practices will ultimately influence library collections, whereby courseware platforms become more prevalent. In the two articles, which then follow, we see detailed case studies carried out.

The first by Lambert, Matthews, and Jones on technical reports at CCLRC in the United Kingdom; and the second by Green on working papers at OECD in France. The final two articles in this issue examine challenges and prospects for grey literature collections. Ramos and Vogel focus on a special collection within an Aquarium’s library, while Natarajan deals with collection development in e-environments pertaining more or less to developing countries.

After reading this selection of articles you may come to agree that the grey scale, whether seen as an instrument or a measurement, must in either case accommodate a variety of document types as well as organisational structures.

INFORMATION FOR SOCIAL CHANGE (ISC)

ISSN 1364-694X

CALL FOR PAPERS (Feel free to foreword this message to friends and colleagues.)

The summer 2007 issue of the online journal Information for Social Change

(ISC) will focus on the urgent theme of library and information workers as political actors in times of war, civil war, military occupation, and social conflicts worldwide.

ISC seeks both contemporary and historical submissions that address such topics as:

-- Library and information provision during times of war, civil war, military occupation, and social conflict that provide insights and practical strategies for potential library and information projects in regions of conflict worldwide.

-- Profiles of library and information workers as participants and interventionists in conflicts, as political actors that offer some new possibilities for strategies of resistance, or that challenge networks of military or civil control worldwide.

-- Access to library and information provision and the information needs of oppressed peoples for empowerment and emancipation during times of war, revolution, or social conflict worldwide.

-- Dissemination of information about inside conflicts to the outside world.  Here, ISC is particularly interested in explorations of how to protect the information provider in terms of privacy; confidentiality; freedom of opinion and expression; freedom of thought, conscience and religion; peaceful assembly and association; and protection from torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment as expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948).

Note: ISC has a special interest in receiving, publishing, documenting, and giving memory to information about conflicts on which very little information has been recorded to date.

Anyone interested in contributing an article, thought piece, bibliography, review, or other work related to the expressed theme is invited to share their ideas with issue co-editors Martyn Lowe

(<mailto:martynlowe@usa.net>martynlowe@usa.net) AND Toni Samek (<mailto:toni.samek@ualberta.ca>toni.samek@ualberta.ca).

The closing date for submission is December 10, 2006 (HUMAN RIGHTS DAY).

Word limits are negotiable with Martyn and Toni.

INFORMATION RESEARCH

Volume 11 no. 3

Open Lib/Info Sci Education Forum [JESSE@LISTSERV.UTK.EDU]; on behalf of; Tom Wilson [wilsontd@GMAIL.COM]      

Mon 17/04/2006 11:53 PM                 JESSE@LISTSERV.UTK.EDU          New Issue of Information Research

The new issue, Volume 11 no. 3, of Information Research is now available at http://InformationR.net/ir/

An extract from the Editorial:

...one paper is of special interest, Terrence A. Brooks's, 'No bad Web pages <http://www.informationr.net/ir/11-3/editor113.html#paper257.html> '. After the paper had been refereed and the changes had been made, I suggested to the author that the paper had a structure, and a topic, that made it an ideal paper to experiment with the concept of 'screen rhetoric'; that is, the design of Web pages to reflect the fact that they are viewed on screen, rather than being read on paper. Terry seized upon this idea with enthusiasm and, using his Javascript skills, has produced a paper which the reader moves through screen by screen, rather than by scrolling down the page. If you want to see the paper as a whole or to print it out, just click on the Print Version link at the top of the page. Of course, this is only one way of implementing the idea: Terry already has ideas on other ways of doing it and we are engaged, in effect, in a continuing experiment into what the scientific paper should look like on screen in the 21st Century. We'd like you to play with the paper - move around it - tell us what you like and what you don't like and what you would do to improve it, or even how you would do it completely differently to achieve a similar result! I shall take all comments, favourable and unfavourable, and put them on a page linked to the paper. We hope to give other papers the 'screen rhetoric' treatment, in different ways, so if you have a paper that you would like us to experiment with, let us know. Both Terry and I will be very interested to have your feedback on the way this paper is presented.

Another 'special interest' paper is the first in a series of Case Studies, which I hope will appear issue by issue over the next year or so. The topic, appropriately, is open access publishing, and the case studies may report on specific journals, aids to open access publishing, alternative modes of open access, in fact, anything to do with the subject that can be presented in the form of a case study. This idea was suggested by Bo-Christer Björk, so it is appropriate that the first is by himself and Ziga Turk, describing the history and present status of ITcon, The Electronic Journal of Information Technology in Construction. If you would like to contribute to the series, please let either Bo-Christer or myself know.

Finally, among the 'specials' is a paper by Elena Macevičiūtė on the development of information needs research in Russia and Lithuania and a comparison with parallel developments in the West. I single this one out because this is a subject which, as far as I am aware, has not been examined before. As Elena's paper shows, sometimes developments in the East were ahead of those in the West, sometimes the other way round, but there is very little evidence, until recently, of the exchange of ideas between East and West. Things are changing, but this retrospective study demonstrates that the 'language barrier' is real, and has probably limited the development of information behaviour research over the past forty years.

Wed 19/07/2006 6:47 AM       JESSE@LISTSERV.UTK.EDU; lis-link@jiscmail.ac.uk; know-org@jiscmail.ac.uk; ASIST [Asis-l] New Issue of Information Research

Volume 11 No. 4, which includes the first batch of papers from the ISIC Conference, which opens on 19th July in Sydney, is now online.

http://Informationr.net/ir/index.html

Here's the editorial, to whet your appetite:

Introduction

As this issue goes online, the ISIC Conference is taking place in Sydney, Australia: sadly, I'm not able to attend this year, the first time I have missed since the series began. I wish all the participants a very successful meeting - and I hope the weather improves before the end of the week. While England swelters in a heat wave, Sydney is in the middle of a cold, wet winter!

In this issue

With the ISIC conference going on, we have the first batch of papers in this issue—the remaining papers will be published in the October

2006 and January 2007 issues. I haven't grouped the papers in any way, they are simply listed in the order in which they came to hand and were prepared for publication. At this stage, I still have one or two amendments to come from some authors, but these are minor points and the texts of the papers have been fully reviewed and edited. As usual with ISIC, the papers went through the same review process as ordinary journal papers and authors were told that the standards applied by peer-reviewed journals would be used by the referees.

I shan't go through each of the papers to say what they are about, but Diane Sonnenwald's paper is somewhat out of the ordinary for ISIC dealing as it does with information behaviour in military command and control. There are so many papers in this area that deal with the 'captive' audiences of schoolchildren, university students and academics, that it is refreshing to have the occasional paper about a different kind of information user group and different information use.

In addition to the ISIC papers we have four other peer-reviewed papers on quite diverse topics. One could well have been an ISIC conference

papers: Scholarly use of information: graduate students' information seeking behaviour by Carole George and her colleagues at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh. This deals with a fairly common topic, but comes from a group of practising librarians, which makes a nice change.

Weideman and Schwenke have explored the extent to which pages linked to by JavaScript™ links are accessible to search engines and conclude that search engine 'crawlers', in general, do not bother to follow such links. This probably has most significance for e-commerce sites and suggests that links of this kind are best avoided.

Baeza-Yates and Pino, present a model for the evaluation of software for CSCW projects, which they illustrate by reference to collaborative information retrieval: they draw attention to the shortcomings of the model, which they intend to develop further.

Finally, an apology to Kristin Eschenfelder and her colleagues: their paper on the ethics of DeCSS ought to have found its way into an earlier issue, but, for one reason or another, was overlooked. The paper could usefully be read in association with that by Vaagan and Koehler.

Endnote

As usual, we can claim an international character; the geographical distribution of papers is: Australia - 2; Canada - 1; Chile - 1; Finland - 1; Israel - 1; South Africa - 1; Sweden - 1; UK - 1; and USA

- 5. I shall check the remaining issues in this volume and show what the distribution is in a message to the Weblog
