Emerald authors in the news

Emerald author opens new blog

A report on the changing status of further education lecturers by Kim Mather, Les Worrall and Roger Seifert has been featured in The Guardian. The authors argue that the shift from a student-centred learning approach to one that is increasingly market-oriented has led to a devaluation of the professional status of teachers in colleges. Their article, "The changing locus of workplace control in the English further education sector" is due to be published in Employee Relations.

View journal information page

Literati Network member and author of the article, Poetry and the business life, Ralph Windle, has just opened an important new blog focusing on interdisciplinary interactions and news exchange between the arts, science and engineering communities. It supplies an international ideas exchange on these issues and seeks to engage active dialogue across the appropriate professional and academic communities.

When an icon stumbles: the Ribena issue mismanaged

The big exit: executive churn in the wake of M&As

When two 14-year-old New Zealand schoolgirls challenged the advertising claims of Ribena blackcurrant drink – owned by global giant GlaxoSmithKline – they triggered a sequence of events which led to prosecution, public opprobrium and international damage to an iconic brand. This paper explores the case and identifies lessons for future management practice.

Readers will be interested to hear about the release of two new journals focusing on the subject of enterprise in China. Published in association with CAMOT (the China Association for Management of Technology), the Journal of Chinese Entrepreneurship and the Journal of Knowledge-based Innovation in China provide relevant research for both academics and practitioners displaying a commitment to publishing management research originating from one of the fastest growing economies of recent years.

Emerald is delighted to report its forthcoming partnership with the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). COPE is a charity that works to promote ethical conduct in scientific research and publication. Founded in 1997, its main activity is to advise editors of academic journals on how to handle cases of suspected research and publication misconduct. In addition to the current assistance provided by Emerald, its partnership with COPE provides editors with extra support in this area by giving them access to advice from an external and impartial body of experts when breaches of publication ethics occur.

About COPE

 

Call for papers

The credit crunch, increases in food prices and the oil crisis have all led to great uncertainty in the global economy. However, some countries have achieved higher growth whereas standards of living have been predicted to plummet in other economies. The International Journal of Emerging Markets is inviting contributions from authors for a special issue of the journal exploring these themes entitled, "Changing patterns of global growth".

Emerald authors in the news

Kevin Fitzgerald receives Outstanding Service Award

Jeffrey Braithwaite’s paper, “Lekking displays in contemporary organizations: Ethologically oriented, evolutionary and cross-species accounts of male dominance” from the Journal of Health Organization and Management, Vol. 22 No. 5, has been picked up by a number of news organizations around the world, including the Sydney Morning Herald. The paper reports on research undertaken at the University of New South Wales which found that males in the workplace can show similar "lekking" (whereby males of certain species display in order to induce females to mate) behaviours to their counterparts in the animal world. The author told the Herald: "Male managers may not be seeking sex in the workplace but they behave the same way".

Our thanks and congratulations go to former Information Management & Computer Security (IMCS) editor, Kevin Fitzgerald, who was presented with an Emerald Outstanding Service Award in appreciation of his long-standing support and consistently high contribution to the journal. Originally launched by Kevin as Computer Control Quarterly, he continued to edit the journal when it was relaunched as IMCS. Kevin retired from the journal in 2007 after 26 years' service. He and his wife, Penny, who also worked on the journal in an unofficial capacity, accepted the award at their home. Originally trained as an accountant, Kevin has enjoyed a varied career and now works as an independent consultant providing advice on information security.

Journal special issue

Universal service policy for the digital era
info, Vol. 10 No. 5/6

This outstanding special issue aims to provide support to the policy process with regard to universal service in a digital context. The papers highlight developments that are shaking up the current universal service model. They consider universal service from a set of different dimensions, encompassing both demand and supply side considerations. Also, a comparative outlook draws lessons from a representative set of existing regulatory models.

 

Measuring the performance of research collaborations

Aligning business leadership development with business needs: the value of discrimination

The authors present a new performance measurement tool which can be used by academic faculty and professional services staff within universities, as well as by industry, to improve the management of research–industry collaborations. The performance tool incorporates key requirements identified in the literature together with the findings from a consultation with a diverse group of highly experienced stakeholders.

View details of this article

In an increasingly turbulent and competitive environment the issues of recruiting, keeping and developing people with the capability to lead and manage business strategy are the focus of considerable attention from organizations, academics and government alike. This paper seeks to provide a critical understanding of the current state of business leadership development and to identify directions for innovative future practice.

TGJ, The Grey Journal, National Prize Winner 2008

http://www.greynet.org/greynethome/news.html 

 

 

The Victorine van Schaick Prize 2008 awarded by the NVB, Netherlands

Association for Library, Information and Knowledge Professionals was

presented to TGJ's Journal Editor during the opening of this year's Online

Conference Netherlands in the Amsterdam RAI.

 

As journal editor, I am both appreciative to the jury in their unanimous

decision and to the various stakeholders who have contributed to the success

of this journal. Namely, the Associate Editors, Technical Editor, Corporate

Authors, Licensing Agent, and more than 100 authors who have published in

The Grey Journal since its launch in 2005.

 

The Victorine van Schaick Prize was first awarded 30 years ago. Various

types of publications in the field of library and information both in print

and electronic formats are eligible for the national competition. Among the

criteria stipulated in judging submissions include that the publication deal

with a new subject area or demonstrate a new approach; that the publication

speak to a broad group of professionals; and that it's language, style, and

appearance lend to readership.

 

The Grey Journal was launched four years ago as the flagship for the grey

literature community. Since then, it has found its way in course syllabi for

schools and colleges of library and information studies as well as citation

indexes. One of the initial goals of TGJ was "to make grey literature more

visible". Recognition by the NVB together will certainly help further this

goal.

Subject: New issue of IR

 

With apologies for multiple posts.

The new issue of Information Research is now available - see http://informationr.net/ir/

Here's the Editorial:

---------------------------------------

Introduction

With this issue, we are back to a normal scale of operations, although 'normal' now means quite a load of work in managing the whole process. We now mount papers on the site as soon as they are ready, but wait until the due date of an issue before publicising. This is also the first issue of our fourteenth year of publication, but I think we'll hold off any celebration until the fifteenth - perhaps a special issue on scholarly communication might be appropriate for Volume 14 No. 1 in March, 2010. In fact, take that as an announcement: papers are invited for a special issue on scholarly communication to be published in March 2010. That means we shall need submissions in, let's say, July, August and September to get through the refereeing and copy-editing process. All aspects of scholarly communication will be welcomed, from the use of electronic communication in scientific collaboratories to institutional archives, open access publishing, and aspects of traditional print publication. Start writing now!

Regular readers will spot some design changes with this issue: the contents page, this editorial and some of the book reviews have all been redesigned, using div tags and style sheets instead of tables. The style sheets are based on those presented by Charles Wyke-Smith in his book reviewed in this issue and the new design should result in these pages loading a little faster than previously.

In this issue

All of the papers in this issue have been on the Website since editing was completed, so some of them already have a significant number of hits. I think this benefits authors, since they have the benefit of early 'publication', while the journal retains the regularity of a publication programme with quarterly 'issues'. I'll be interested to hear from authors as to the benefits, or otherwise, of this approach.

The papers cover a wide variety of topics and we have authors from Portugal and Chile, Iceland, France, Finland, South Africa, Taiwan, and Canada and the USA. The topics are truly diverse. Three deal with information behaviour: Palsdottir reports on a study of health-related information behaviour, while Savolainen is concerned with the nature of information use, and Meyer reports on information sharing in a cross-cultural context. One, by Bo-Christer Björk and his colleagues, covers journal publising and the share taken by open access publishing, concluding that 4.6% of the 2006 output was immediately available, with an additional 3.5% after one year, and 11.3% in repositories or on home pages. The remaining four papers deal with evaluating shared virtual work space, the use of intelligent agents in environmental scanning, the relationship between innovation and IT capability in the financial service sector, and the evolution of comparison metrics for indexing languages. In other words we seem to have something here for pretty well everyone.

Those whose interests aren't catered for by the papers might well find something of value in the book reviews. We have ten on this occasion, three of which deal with various aspects of Google and its service. We also review books on public library management in times of change, a guide to reference sources, a festschrift for Professor Peter Brophy, information architecture, and designing Web pages with Cascading Style Sheets - the latter has led to a new design for the book reviews and may influence other parts of the journal.

Finally

I noted in the last editorial that this journal is a collaborative effort and could not be published without considerable efforts by a large number of people, so I would once again like to thank the Associate Editors, the referees and the copy-editors for their efforts, as well as our colleagues at Lund who keep the server running!

For those who have not read the Editorial in the current issue.

Information will publish a thematic issue in March 2010 to celebrate 15 years of open access publishing.

The theme is scholarly communication - and papers on all aspects of this subject will be welcome, from reports on research on the impact on scholarly communication of information and communication technologies in general to studies of the role of e-journals, open access and institutional repositories.

The latest date by which papers can be considered for this particular issue (in order to go through the full peer review and revision process) will be 1st October, 2009.  When submitting a paper for this issue through the journal management system, please mail the Editor (wilsontd@gmail.com) to the effect that you want the paper to be considered for the thematic issue.

International Journal of Library and Information Science

            Call for papers

 

 

From: International Journal of Library and Information Science [mailto:ijlis@acadjourn.org]

Subject: Call For Paper

 

 

Introducing ''International Journal of Library and Information Science"

 Dear Colleague,

 The International Journal of Library and Information Science (IJLIS) is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal published that will be monthly by Academic Journals (http://www.academicjournals.org/IJLIS). IJLIS is dedicated to increasing the depth of the subject across disciplines with the ultimate aim of expanding knowledge of the subject.

 Editors and reviewers

 IJLIS is seeking qualified researchers to join its editorial team as editors, subeditors or reviewers. Kindly send your resume to IJLIS@acadjourn.org

 Call for Papers

 IJLIS will cover all areas of the subject. The journal welcomes the submission of manuscripts that meet the general criteria of significance and scientific excellence, and will publish:

 ·       Original articles in basic and applied research

·       Case studies

·       Critical reviews, surveys, opinions, commentaries and essays

 We invite you to submit your manuscript(s) to IJLIS@acadjourn.org for publication in the Maiden Issue (April 2009). Our objective is to inform authors of the decision on their manuscript(s) within four weeks of submission. Following acceptance, a paper will normally be published in the next issue. Instruction for authors and other details are available on our website; http://www.academicjournals.org/IJLIS/Instruction.htm

 IJLIS is an Open Access Journal

 One key request of researchers across the world is unrestricted access to research publications. Open access gives a worldwide audience larger than that of any subscription-based journal and thus increases the visibility and impact of published works. It also enhances indexing, retrieval power and eliminates the need for permissions to reproduce and distribute content. IJLIS is fully committed to the Open Access Initiative and will provide free access to all articles as soon as they are published.

Best regards,

Emeje Cynthia

Editorial Assistant

Call for Articles/Ideas

As the new co-editor for ‘Library Hi Tech News’ (LHTN), I am looking for articles on hot-topics such as the ones suggested below or any innovative use of technology for library applications and services. We are also looking for reports of library and non-library technology conferences. LHTN is a non-refereed publication which comes out ten times/year, so articles submitted can be published fairly quickly. In some cases your report on an innovative use of technology can later be submitted as a research paper in one of Emerald’s peer-reviewed journals such as ‘Reference Services Review’, ‘Library Hi Tech’ and others. So, you might think of your article as being a “poster sessions in print” and a way to get your information/ideas out to a wide international readership.

Delivering Business Value through Information Literacy in the Workplace

Bonnie Cheuk

Abstract. This paper presents a real-life example as to how the world's largest environmental consulting firm - Environmental Resources Management (ERM) - recognises 'information literacy' as a critical component of its knowledge management program to create value for the company. With the rise of information technology which allows vast amounts of information to flow across an organisation very quickly, many employees have been complaining about 'information overload' and 'knowledge underload'. Companies in the past 10 years have 'recognised' the value of information and knowledge, and it is becoming a strategic issue to provide employees with access to the right information at the right time. As a result, managing information and knowledge becomes a business critical agenda item discussed in the boardroom, with the aim to apply global knowledge to deliver the highest quality solutions to clients. Despite all the investment, however, employees find that the in formation/kno!

 wledge management systems generate too many reports/results which nobody reads, and when employees need information to support their work, they are not getting what they want. Why are employees not getting the full benefits out of a global knowledge management system? What is the common perception of the 'information overload' problem in the work place? Is this a symptom of a much bigger problem? Is there an alternative perspective that can shed some light on this issue? The modern workplace requires employees who are confident and competent in interacting with information to deliver maximum business value. In this paper, the author argues there is a body of existing information literacy knowledge (mostly developed in the education context) which can be adapted to address 'information overload' in the workplace context.

 

 

Knowledge Management and International Organizations: Perspectives on Information Professionals' Role

Joyline Makani

 

 

Abstract. The rapid evolution of information and communication technology in recent years has seen knowledge management become a key tool for the success of a variety of institutions. Many international organizations have developed knowledge management programs as key to their future development strategies. The number of international organizations that have identified knowledge management as one of their core management tools or formed a new knowledge management department is growing every day. Thus, the IFRC (International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies), ILO (International Labour Office), United Nations and IMF (International Monetary Fund) have now created knowledge management divisions within their structures. Yet despite its growing popularity, knowledge management in international organizations remains a complex and challenging task. It calls for the management and integration of knowledge bases across national boundaries, in diverse cultural setti!

 ngs, and within organizations that may possess distinct values and sets of priorities. This study attempts to explicate the importance of including an information professional in all the systematic processes of knowledge management. The objective of the study is accomplished through a case study of the IFRC. It explicitly identifies the roles through which the librarians' professional training can be leveraged for knowledge capturing, organization, and dissemination in an organization such as the IFRC.

 

 

 

Information Literacy and Knowledge Management: Preparations for an Arranged Marriage

 

Ruben Toledano O'Farrill

Abstract. This article discusses a conceptual framework developed as part of ongoing PhD research looking at work place information literacy (IL) and exploring its relation ships to knowledge management (KM). An empirical study is researching conceptions of effective information use and learning practices of staff at a national, over the phone, health service operating 24/7, using a phenomenographic approach combined with a consideration of structural aspects of the work place environment related to institutional initiatives for KM. The proposed framework involves three main elements: an epistemological approach to learning based on social constructivism and hermeneutics; the analysis of situated practice from a sociological and philosophical view point based on critical realism; and a definition of literacy as a multimodal semiotic tool for learning. The concepts of literacy and literacies are discussed in contrast to information literacy, and it is suggested that seeing in!

 formation literacy as an aspect of literacy, rather than as an independent concept, is a more fruitful approach to the study of the core processes involved in sense-making, learning and decision making in situated practice and particularly in organizational environments.

 

 

Task as a Context of Information Seeking: An Investigation of Daily Life Tasks on the Web

Jeonghyun Kim

Abstract. This study examines how tasks influence information seeking behavior in the World Wide Web. There are three primary reasons for considering this issue: to understand the nature of people's information seeking tasks, to investigate the ways in which they attempt to execute tasks in their user-system interactions, and to facilitate the development and design of a system that serves people's task goals and supports their task-related information seeking behavior. Thirty students with backgrounds in library and information science participated in this study in a laboratory setting. Three different types of tasks were assigned. Significant differences were found in searching behavior on the Web among task types. Furthermore, the relationship of searching behavior with task difficulty, prior knowledge, and searchers' demographic characteristics varied by task types. The results suggest that information systems should be structured in ways that support users' tasks. Futur!

 e study should focus on such issues and then propose how information systems and services can be tailored to the task in context.

 

 

Students' Attitudes Towards Web Search Engines - Increasing Appreciation of Sophisticated Search Strategies

Konstantina Martzoukou

Abstract. Web search engines have developed into widely used services and essential tools for finding Web-based information. Research has found that although users typically follow 'unsophisticated' information-seeking patterns, they appear to be satisfied with the performance of search engines and themselves as information seekers. This paper argues that the development of information literacy skills in the context of Web search engines requires deeper understanding of the reasons underlying already established behavioural patterns. The study explored the information-seeking behaviour of sixty-six postgraduate students and examined user satisfaction through the perceptions of students about them selves as information seekers. It was found that the students were experienced Web searchers but they shared less appreciation for the value of more complex strategies in the Web environment. Although they were aware of the limitations of their information-seeking behaviour they had!

  minimal motivation to change habitual behavioural pat terns. The paper concludes that there is a need to place less emphasis on developing 'optimal' search skills through information literacy instruction and focus on increasing motivation and appreciation of more complex search strategies.

 

 

How Much do Village Libraries Increase Reading? Results of a Survey of 10th Graders in Burkina Faso

Michael Kevane and Alain Joseph Sissao

Abstract. This paper offers an estimate of the impact of small public libraries in villages in Burkina Faso on reading habits. A survey of secondary school students was conducted in March 2005. Students were selected in eight villages that matched the criteria 'with library' and 'without library'. Overall the reading level of students in the sample was quite low, but the results indicate that the presence of a well-functioning library leads to an increase in reading on the order of 50%.

     Knowledge Dissemination of Word-of-MouthResearch: Citation Analysis and Social Network

Analysis

     Tom M. Y. Lin and Chun-Wei Liao

 

     Abstract. In the past 40 years, there have been many studies related to word of mouth;

however, no reviews of the word-of-mouth literatures have been found. This study

integrates the methods of citation analysis and social network analysis to explore the citation

of word-of-mouth papers and further validates the knowledge dissemination of word-of-mouth studies.

The results of the research reveal that the three papers - Richins (1983), Brown and Reingen (1987)

and Herr, Kardes and Kim (1991) - were in more centralized positions in the citation network. As

core papers in the word-of-mouth field, they play critical roles in knowledge. These research

findings allow researchers to access studies related to the word-of-mouth field from the past

40 years, and dissemination of word-of-mouth knowledge helps researchers' control over future

research directions and the overall knowledge contribution of the word-of-mouth field.

 

     Environmental Scanning in Botswana's SMEs: A Study of the Manufacturing Industry

     Boemo Nlayidzi Jorosi

 

     Abstract. Environmental scanning (ES) is an indispensable activity practiced by top

executives to align their organizations to turbulent environments. However, although the

subject has generated a vast body of literature, it remains an underdeveloped domain in

sub-Saharan Africa in general, and in Botswana in particular. Consequently, there is a paucity of

literature on the subject and this has unfortunately limited a fuller understanding of

how ES in transitional contexts is practiced. The research reported here thus investigated the

scanning behaviour of CEOs of SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) in Botswana's manufacturing

sector. Data were gathered via mail-delivered questionnaires sent to respondents based in the

cities of Gaborone and Francistown. The key findings of the study were: (1) the CEOs in the

study display a propensity to scan the task environment with greater frequency focusing most

on the customer, competitor and suppliers sectors; (2) CEOs in the sample are systematic

scanners and frequently use the continuous scanning mode; (3) the sampled CEOs consider

personal sources (customers, business associates, managers and sup pliers) as their preferred

sources of in formation; and (4) CEOs use a mosaic of sources but tend to rely on personal

sources more than impersonal. Recommendations are made for future research on CEO scanning.

 

     Sharing Information Resources: a Study of School Clusters from Rural KwaZulu-Natal, South

Africa

     Sibongile Nzimande and Christine Stilwell

 

     Abstract. The purpose of this survey-based study, undertaken at the Inkandla and Mbazwana

school clusters in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, was to investigate the awareness of community

members with regard to the concept of clustering.  The term community is used in the sense of a

social group of any size whose members reside in a specific locality (Webster's on line dictionary

2008). They share government, and have a common cultural and historical heritage. Although the

intention of the initiative was to increase access to essential information resources, the

preparedness of the communities to share these resources, to tolerate the hardships of

travelling long distances, to accept the challenges and responsibilities and learn from

the lessons, were also part of the study. Access to amenities like laboratories and libraries are

of ten viewed by policymakers, among others, as unnecessary luxuries especially by those who were

deprived of these facilities in the course of their education, but who managed nevertheless to

achieve success. A resource-based curriculum, such as South Africa's Curriculum 2005, requires

an abundance of resources, but a lack of funding prevents many schools from having all the

necessary resources to sup port the curriculum. Creative ways of providing resources and

expertise have been conceived by education departments and the clustering of schools to

encourage sharing is one such method used by the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Education. The

evolution of this clustering project took different forms. Subsequent events showed that

the form taken either allowed for further growth and development, or subjected the project to

failure and decay. Issues of acceptance by the communities, particularly their awareness of the

vision and their preparedness to share resources, interacted with problems of accessibility and

community dynamics to determine either the success or failure of the project. Know l edge

gained from the study could be important for other initiatives in similar contexts, but must

be applied with caution.

 

     LIS Education and Web Services in the Public Sector: the Case of Spain

     Celia Chain-Navarro, Antonio Muñoz Cañavate

and Verónica Salido Martínez 246

 

     Abstract. This article deals with the need to define the public administration sector as a

major provider of Web-based job-placement resources in the field of corporate information

management for Spanish graduates in librarianship and information science. The Web as an instrument

of information dissemination gives the citizen who uses it many advantages. Unlike other

information services where the flow of information is targeted at a specific part of the

population, the Public Administration Sector generates information that is, or should be,

useful to any citizen, regardless of his or her situation or profession. Throughout life, one has

to interact with local, regional, and national Public Administrative units. Sometimes the

process is direct between a citizen and the staff of these units, but on other occasions the

Administration itself has to structure the flow of information to the citizen. The Web has become

an effective tool in this sense, but who are the professionals managing these information

resources? The present work will show that Spanish universities offering courses in

librarianship and information science have remained unaware of these new job opportunities

that have arisen in recent years. Data used to support this conclusion are: 1) Spanish reports

on the job market for librarianship and information science graduates, 2) study plans at

the different levels of higher education in Spain (first, second, and third cycles of university),

and 3) the educational qualifications of the website administrators of Spain's provincial

capitals, a typical sample of Spanish public administrative units.

 

     The Effect of Mass Purchase on Document Supply Service at South Korean Medical Libraries

     Eun-Ja Shin

 

     Abstract. The appearance of KESLI (Korea Electronic Site License Initiative), an

electronic journals consortium, has allowed South Korean medical libraries to expand the

availability of foreign academic journals dramatically. The growth in subscription journals

has had a considerable impact on various library services, especially document supply service

(DSS). Many studies have already reported that DSS has decreased as a result of electronic

journal bundles provided by consortia, but this study shows the matter in a new light. The author

performed an analysis to verify the direction that DSS has moved in the past five years at

South Korean medical libraries, especially among KMLA (Korean Medical Library Association)

members. Even though consortial purchasing has become the general practice, results show that

DSS for 2006 was approximately 11% higher than for 2002. But we have to take note of the

findings that DSS in these libraries has not increased from 2004, and has even decreased. In

particular, DSS for 2006 decreased 43% as the volume peaked in 2003. Mass purchase by the

consortium may be playing a great role in bringing about the decline in DSS. As mass

purchase allows users to access not only current issues but also back issues anytime and anywhere,

users can easily get needed articles that in the past could only be accessed by requesting copies

from other libraries.

 

     Information Literacy Development in Malaysia: A Review

     N.N. Edzan

 

     Abstract. This paper traces the development of information literacy initiatives at the

various levels within the Malaysian educational system. Information literacy has been embedded

within the Malaysian educational system for some time. Information literacy means information

skills delivered by the teachers at both the primary and secondary levels. Subsequently, in -

formation literacy competencies are further imparted to under graduates and postgraduates by

various academic libraries. The paper looks at the formulation of the National Information

Technology Agenda and the initial emergence of information literacy initiatives within Malaysian

society. Efforts are being made by various entities to create an information literate

society in line with the government's aim of attaining Vision 2020 - the creation of a civil

society whereby all citizens will be information literate and well-equipped as knowledge workers.

 

     Interaction and Impact of Electronic Information Resources on Qatar University Faculty

     Amer I. Kindilchie and Iman F. Samarraie

 

     Abstract. This article identifies trends among faculty members at Qa tar University in

utilizing electronic information resources to develop their teaching, research and personal

knowledge. The University Library subscribes to 30 specialized electronic databases. In addition,

the Library provides all faculty members with free access to its electronic resources through

the University Network both on campus and off campus. A questionnaire distributed to all

faculty members (around 600) during the academic year 2006-2007 revealed that the data bases and

e-resources provided by the University were not well utilized by the entire faculty, although

they are making a difference to the work of some of the University's faculty members. The

University Library needs to under take a review to identify other databases that may be needed,

to promote the use of e-resources in teaching and learning, and to develop the search skills of

faculty and students.

 

     The Use of the Internet by Political Parties and Candidates in the 2007 Scottish Parliament

Election

     Rita Marcella, Graeme Baxter and Shih Cheah

 

     Abstract. This paper reports the results of a study which investigated the use of the Internet

by political parties and individual candidates as part of their campaigns for election to the

Scottish Parliament in 2007. This was a comparative, follow-up study to one conducted

prior to the previous Scottish Parliamentary election in 2003. Two methodologies were used in

gathering data. Firstly, the content of the websites of 27 political parties and 12

individual candidates was analysed to identify the ways in which political participation by the

Scottish public was encouraged via the provision of information and of opportunities for

interaction, debate and feedback. Secondly, a series of email enquiries, based around key

policy issues, was directed at political parties and individual candidates, to measure the speed

and extent of response, as well as any efforts made towards the creation of an ongoing

relationship with potential voters. The results indicate that the Internet was used mainly for

the dissemination of information and ideas rather than for their exchange.

Irreparable Damage: Violence, Ownership, and Voice in an Indian Archive

MICHELLE CASWELL

 

Abstract. This paper uses a 2004 destructive incident at the Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute (BORI) in Pune, India as a case study to discuss the intersection of caste politics, ownership, and violence in the archives. After a brief overview of the events leading up to, during, and subsequent to the violent destruction of archival documents by an angry lower caste mob, this paper provides the historical context necessary to analyze issues of ownership, politics, and colonialism within the context of a South Asian library, keeping in mind the complex interplay of religion, region, and caste in India. The paper then explores this incident from an archival studies perspective, looking at archives as both sites of violence and as cultural and political symbols, and explores how issues of ownership, political pressure, and access, if not properly addressed, can boil over into violent destruction of the archival record. Finally, this paper argues that violent incidents such!

  as the one described can occur outside of the Indian context, in almost any archival setting, and concludes with recommendations on how to avoid future destruction in archival repositories.

Place, Space and Time: Adult Education Experiences of Learners and Librarians in South African Public Libraries

     MARY NASSIMBENI & BEV MAY

 

Abstract. Drawing on results of a national survey, this article examines adult education in South African public libraries from the perspective of adult learners and librarians. Quantitative data from 589 libraries from the total sample of 1295 libraries was collected. This was supplemented by qualitative data collected during site visits to eleven libraries selected to cover geographical spread. The activities of the 26.7% of the libraries involved in adult education are analysed with a view to understanding the interventions through the experience and perceptions of the participants, and so arriving at an understanding of the contribution of the libraries' role in the fight against illiteracy which is acknowledged by the South African government as a serious impediment to its development efforts. An attempt is made to assess the extent to which the experiences in the libraries can be said to be particular to the local situation, or whether the lessons learned form part of !

 a broader pattern of adult education policy and practice observed in other parts of the world, especially developing countries. It is concluded that, in spite of the modest scale of the interventions, the impact is sufficiently encouraging to recommend intensifying and spreading initiatives in the public library's drive for social inclusion.

 

 

Proposed Business Information System Design (BISD) for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Northern Uganda

     CONSTANT OKELLO-OBURA, MABEL K. MINISHI-MAJANJA, LINDA CLOETE & J. R. IKOJA-ODONGO

 

Abstract. The article reports the study conducted in northern Uganda to design a Business Information System (BIS) for small and medium enterprises (SMEs). A study by the Uganda Bureau of Statistics (2005, 30) established that the majority of business enterprises depend on "word of mouth". There is no meaningful mechanism for accessing relevant information on business resources, a considerable amount of which is available in Uganda. Based on this documented fact, there is a need to establish the requirements for a BIS and to propose one. By using descriptive research design this study establishes the business information system requirements and recommends the appropriate BIS for the SMEs in northern Uganda. The study establishes, among other things: the preferred business information processing formats, most appropriate location of the proposed BIS centre in northern Uganda and views on BIS for efficient business information provision. The study recommends that as part of th!

 e strategy to facilitate access to the BIS, there should be the adoption of Internet-based services with the integration of an interactive business planner, an online small business workshop, the business start-up assistant; telephone services; fax services and in-person services. There should also be a feedback mechanism coordinated from the Gulu district; the coordinating centre and the system interface should be flexible allowing the acquisition of business information from both the micro and macro levels.

 

IFLA/UNESCO School Library Manifesto for Creating One World

     H. INCI ÖNAL

 

Abstract. School libraries are indispensable adjuncts to education, a base for generating innovative thinking, a stimulus to culture, and an aid to individual self-development. The IFLA/UNESCO School Library Manifesto, the qualitative standard for universal provision, recommends that for each country there should be work on developing links between the school's objectives and its library's service. The Manifesto strongly endorses the creation of strong and effective school libraries. The national school library systems in Germany, Iran and Turkey have provided information services over the years, yet inadequate study to evaluate these services has limited understanding of the effects of the Manifesto. This study examined the impact of the Manifesto through literature analysis, visiting 425 school libraries in these countries and/or using their websites, interviews with 1107 individuals, and a summative comparative evaluation. The results reveal that the national implementati!

 ons of the Manifesto, its statements on objectives and duties, are a valuable support to ongoing processes of policy formulation. The study also shows evaluations from the librarians' own perspectives, and uncovers general suggestions for more efficient and effective solutions. The comparisons completed in 2008 reveal important information about the impact of the Manifesto in school library services, and enable recommendations to be made for the future use and development of the Manifesto.

 

 

Influence of Information Technology in Growth and Publication of Indian LIS Literature

     NEENA SINGH

 

Abstract. Information technology has brought a tremendous change in the nature, boundaries and structure of information. The ongoing movement towards an electronic information society is pushing libraries towards automation and digitization. The revolution has brought impressive changes in the role of LIS professionals who are now being viewed as information managers/ facilitators. These developments have also influenced LIS writings and publishing. This study shows that while the application of IT has gained considerable importance in Indian libraries, IT-based papers have surprisingly found less space in Indian LIS periodicals as compared to the LIS literature in general. The findings of this study also indicate that there is an uneven distribution of various topics within the Indian LIS IT-published literature; while some topics/areas of IT have received considerable attention others have been barely touched. Topics like IT in general, bibliographic databases, library net!

 working, library automation and electronic resources have been found to predominate in the growth of Indian LIS literature as compared to the coverage of other areas of IT. Most papers (60%) have single authors, indicating a low amount of teamwork/collaborative writing. The paper's analysis also reveals that working professionals/librarians have made more contributions (48%) in comparison to teaching professionals (22%).

 |English abstract|

This editorial introduces the reader to the work behind the creation of the journal Library and Information Science Critique: Journal of the Sciences of Information Recorded in Documents (LIS Critique). It argues that LIS Critique comes to be a journal that will challenge the mainstream LIS communication venues, both from traditional publishers and Open Access. It describes the aims, the editorial board, the peer review process and the collaboration of the first issue.

Six theses about the economy of information, by: Enrique de-la-Garza-Toledo (MEXICO),  

pp. 8-13

|full text  pdf | [Only in Spanish]

 |English abstract| 

On the problem of why the concepts of the Information Society or the Knowledge Society--although they do not form a theory--are being imposed as part of an international consensus of academic and public policies, and why this has to do, not with their intrinsic truth, but because those who promote them have sufficient power to impose meaning on them as accepted concepts.

 

An introduction to the critical and skeptical thinking in the sciences of information recorded in documents, by: Zapopan Martin Muela-Meza (MEXICO),  

pp. 14-40

  |full text  pdf | [Only in Spanish]

  |English abstract|

An analysis and critique is made of a reduced sample of contemporary deceptive ideologies within the research of Library and Information Science, defined as the science of documental information, as well as within the institutions of documental information, i.e., libraries, as applied by the professionals of documental information, i.e., librarians providing service both theoretically and practically to users of documental information. The analysis employs terms such as documental information or information recorded in documents as conceptualized by Rendón Rojas (2005), and is based on the critical and skeptical thought of Sagan (1997). Examined are deceits specific to ideology associated with the dominant Alfa social classes executed against all the dominated ones--unto the Betas to the Omegas--communicated through arguments containing logical and rhetorical fallacies (Bowell and Kemp, 2005). Here they are examined as possible valid elements for analysis to be researched in LIS. The following fallacies were found: a) to call on authority; b) of Common Practice; c) selection from an arbitrary observation; d)
epistemic fallacy. According to the data obtained through the literature reviewed it could be observed that these fallacies occured mostly around the following examples of the most representative ideological and pseudo-scientific deceits: 1) concerning the primacy of pragmaticism against theory in LIS research; 2) concerning the impregnation of LIS research with pseudo-science; 3) concerning the ideologies of the Information Society and/or Knowledge Society (ISKS); 4) concerning "social capital" and "human capital"; 5) regarding the commercialization and marketing of the documental information in the ISKS; 6) regarding "knowledge and information as generators of material wealth" in the ISKS; 7) regarding the competition to find the foundation/origin/canon of all the ISKS ideologies. Intertwined throughout the argumentation of the paper there is proposed an adoption/integration of a learned epistemology, scientific and humanistic, as the core of LIS research, education and training, so that students, faculty and professionals can base their library research and practice on critical and skeptical thought.

 

A critical analysis of the copyright and its negative impact on the Mexican institutions of information recorded in documents, por: José Antonio Torres-Reyes (MEXICO)

pp. 41-49

|full text pdf | [Only in Spanish]

 |English abstract| 

This paper offers the conclusions of a revision and critical analysis of the Author Rights Federal Law of Mexico (LFDA), current as of the year 2003, from the perspective of the implications that this law has for the ambit of information and documentation services offered by those institutions specializing in documental information: libraries, archives and information documentation institutions (IID). It presents and describes some of the characteristics of the LFDA that impact negatively on efforts to make optimal use of this information on that part of Mexican society as represented in this study of IID users.

 

An approximation to the critique of the library and information science management models, by: Tatiana M. Carsen; Marcel Bertolesi; Veronica Lencinas (ARGENTINA),  

pp. 50-65

|full text pdf | [Only in Spanish]

 |English abstract| 

Regarding questions raised during a virtual debate conducted among the three authors; some points are proposed for a critical consideration of some concepts regarding current methods and models of library management involving the library service area (marketing studies/user satisfaction in library services); also considered: product development (marketing) and its technical platform (marketing of products involving user/client relations); the "client" dimension as a mode of relating with the user; strategic planning and the management of total quality (the significance of the Toyota management model).

 

Information Literacy: project or kimera?, by:: Carmen Garcia-Colorado; Rosa María Irigoyen-Camacho; Antonia Llorens-Cruset (MEXICO),  

pp. 66-79

|full text pdf | [Only in Spanish]

 |English abstract| 

This paper is a critical analysis of information literacy; we describe its origin, the diverse connotations of the term and its economic, ideologic and pedagogic implications. Information literacy is presented as a way to attain an "information society"; the latter concept is also analyzed in this work. We reflect on the role that information literacy is playing on the transformation of the ideas that librarians have regarding their professional functions.

 

The Freedom of Information Access: Evaluation of the organization and contents of the Web pages of the institutions of the Peruvian State,  by: Rosalia Quiroz (PERU)

pp. 80-90

 

|full text pdf| [Only in Spanish]

 |English abstract| 

The Investigation evaluates the fulfillment of the Law of Transparency and Access to Public Information, in a real and particular situation, on the basis of the organization level and the contents of the web pages of organizations and Ministries of Peru , in addition, search to know the level of participation of professionals in information, in the organization and the diffusion of the information. The work was developed taking as example the Regional Governments since they are decentralized institutions with democratic representation all over the country. Consequently, it was investigated the aspects that the Law forces the organizations to show and incorporate as basic information in its respective Internet sites as: the organizational charts, the Unique Text of Administratives Procedures (TUPA), the remunerative level, and the acquisition of goods and services; therefore, the analysis units were conformed by the web sites of each one of these organizations.

 

Strategic view of the library and information science management from a perspective of the information management, by: Ada de Jesús de-la-Cantera (CUBA),

 pp. 91-102

|full text pdf | [Only in Spanish]

 |English abstract| 

In this article, an analysis of the library and information science management is made as a component of a Dynamic and Complex System, which responds to a strategy of inquire from a framework of interpretation of the Complexity Thinking. The application comprises a strategic approach and a view to the performance in perspective of the management of information recorded in documents in a macro social context. It is explained a series of knowledge products that justify a new style of non-linear, holistic, and more dynamic thinking with
a search strategy more oriented towards the dynamics. It is proposed a reflection about the dynamics totality compounded of diverse aspects of the processes of interaction and information management.

 

Librarianship in Mexico: a discipline in crisis, by: Jose Angel Gonzalez-Castillo; Carlos Alberto Martinez-Hernandez (MEXICO),  

pp. 103-110

|full text pdf| [Only in English]

|English abstract|

Library Science in Mexico is a discipline at crisis. On one hand, in the search for integration into the information society its Study Program changes towards a more administrative and technical model of education; on the other hand, as our introductory example shows, the lack of a humanistic education for librarians, is leaving them in a very unethical position since they do not have what is needed to understand the political and social relevance of knowledge production and transmission. A positivist perspective of reality has invaded classrooms, conferences, publications and research. There is no critical or theoretical thinking in Mexican librarianship at all nowadays and this determines an apathetic and passive performance from librarians, especially in public libraries since these public spaces are open to the social, economical and political characteristics of the place they were built on. More over, the mission of public libraries as social change agents does not accomplish due to the fact that they are not offering any objective alternative to mass media standardization of public opinion. And as TV and media-based democracy spreads throughout the whole country, librarians seem oblivious to this situation. It is because
of this, that we believe it is necessary for librarians to get a theoretical and humanistic education while they are in school in order to be prepared and committed with their social role.

 

Nicaragua in the scenario of the Freedom of Information Access Legislation: the role of the National Library and Archive, by: James Campbell-Jerez (NICARAGUA), 

 pp. 111-120

|full text pdf | [Only in Spanish]

 |English abstract|

In Nicaragua, the recent promulgation of the Law of Access to Public Information (Law No. 621) should call public attention to the importance of the country's libraries, documentation centers, and archives. It should also highlight the role played by the National Library and Archives of Nicaragua (or in any case, the role they should be playing). This essay provides a brief overview of the situation of the organization of information before and after promulgation of this law, highlighting how the legislation left out the normative capacity regarding the compilation, organization, preservation and access to information on behalf of the National Library and Archives. It concludes with a discussion of the challenges faced by
information professionals in this new era.

Essays

 

Books of the Mexican National Autonomous University (UNAM) through Google, by: Gonzalo Clemente Lara-Pacheco (MEXICO)

pp. 121-125

|full text pdf | [Only in Spanish]

 |English abstract| 

Within the framework of the agreement signed by UNAM and Google in 2007 to digitize the National University's collection of books, there needs to be a means of promoting UNAM's Biblioteca Digital (BiDi-UNAM), which has been digitizing its collection of bibliographic holdings dating from 1950 to the present. The early experiences of BiDi-UNAM, the use of its technical resources and staff, and its policy of open-access e-book production should be
considered as a case study for the new digitization project (the 2007 agreement).

Subject: Scholarly journals - new free service makes keeping up-to-date easy

 

Keeping up-to-date with the scholarly literature just became much

easier, thanks to a new service called ticTOCs  - Journal Tables of

Contents Service.

 

http://www.tictocs.ac.uk <http://www.tictocs.ac.uk/>

 

ticTOCs is a new scholarly journal tables of contents (TOCs) service.

It's free, its easy to use, and it provides access to the most recent

tables of contents of over 11,000 scholarly journals from more than 400

publishers.  It helps scholars, researchers, academics and anyone else

keep up-to-date with what's being published in the most recent issues of

journals on almost any subject.

 

Using ticTOCs, you can find journals of interest by title, subject or

publisher, view the latest TOC, link through to the full text of over

250,000 articles (where institutional or personal subscriptions, or Open

Access, allow), and save selected journals to MyTOCs so that you can

view future TOCs (free registration is required if you want to

permanently save your MyTOCs).  ticTOCs also makes it easy to export

selected TOC RSS feeds to popular feedreaders such as Google Reader and

Bloglines, and in addition you can import article citations into

RefWorks (where institutional or personal subscriptions allow).

 

You select TOCs by ticking those of interest - thousands of TOCs, within

a tick or two (hence the name ticTOCs).

 

ticTOCs has been funded under the JISC Users & Innovations programme

<http://www.jisc.ac.uk/whatwedo/programmes/programme_users_and_innovatio

n.aspx> , and has been developed by an international consortium

consisting of the University of Liverpool Library (lead), Heriot-Watt

University, CrossRef, ProQuest, Emerald, RefWorks, MIMAS, Cranfield

University, Institute of Physics, SAGE Publishers, Inderscience

Publishers, DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals), Open J-Gate, and

Intute.

(Apologies for cross-postings)

 

 

In this double issue we introduce the theme of Open Higher Education in the Nordic and Baltic countries. Aune Valk presents Open Higher Education in Estonia, and Open Educational Resources in Swedish HE are discussed by Per Westman and Jonas Paulsson. In coming issues we plan to present reports from other Nordic countries

The University of Helsinki Open Access mandate is the first university mandate in our region and Marjut Salokannel´s report University of Helsinki opens its research vaults describes the purpose and implications of the mandate and also discusses the importance of public availability of research data. “Currently large amounts of research data lie under-utilized and research funding can be regarded as wasted in this respect.”

The Lithuanian Ministry of Education and Science initiated a meeting on Open Access in the European Union and Lithuania. It was arranged in May this year with the help of the Lithuanian Research Libraries Consortium. The lively discussions are reported by Meile Kretaviciene, who concludes with the positive news that an article on Open Access is included in the draft of a new Law on Science and Studies.

Jan Erik Frantsvåg reports on the latest developments of Open Access in Norway. Articles deposited in the NORA repositories have increase by 30 %. Norwegian Creative Commons licenses have been launched as well as a new OA journal on reindeer research. The Ministry of Education and Research has asked the Norwegian Research Council and The Norwegian Association of Higher Education Institutions for advice on how to promote OA.

In her article Telling a different story in open access journals? Helena Francke raises the interesting issue of what happens to scholarly journals when they move online. Will research be narrated in different ways when untraditional tools are available for use as a result of a change of medium? The study is based on 265 open access journals.

Readers are very welcome to comment our articles and to send us news on scientific communication developments in the Nordic/Baltic countries.
