Subject: Too many newsletters from Emerald?

 

 

Dear Colleague,

We've been getting feedback from some people, that they get too many newsletters from us. At Emerald we’d rather people only receive what they actually want. As a result, we have revamped our newsletter page to ensure that we deliver emails relevant to you.

What has changed?

The following newsletters have been retired and therefore removed from our website:

Emerald Now
Library Link
Literati Network Updates
Partnerships

The above newsletters have been replaced by our exciting new Emerald Global newsletter that some of you may already have begun receiving. This newsletter is dispatched every 2 months and contains all the latest happenings with the company.

Please note, all those people that were previously receiving Emerald Now, Library Link or the Literati Network newsletter will automatically receive Emerald Global until you inform us otherwise. Current subscribers to all our other newsletter/interest area lists will continue receiving our content as normal.

In addition to the above changes we have also decided to revamp our interest area lists to ensure we provide you with content that is most relevant to yourself.

Review your newsletter settings

Subject: [Asis-l] New issue of Information Research

 

The new issue of the journal is now available at the usual place.

Here's the Editorial:

 

Introduction

 

This issue is a little early in being 'put to bed' because other

commitments intervene. However, that doesn't really affect the

content, which has been in preparation for some time and, indeed, some

of the papers have been on the site for a month or so before

publication. The search engines find them there and the papers get a

few more 'hits' before the world at large knows about them.

 

The numbers of papers coming forward continues to grow, although some

(a relatively small proportion) are so far outside the field of

interest that one wonders why on earth anyone would think the journal

was appropriate for their output. Such papers do not get any further

than the Editor's screen and that is also the case with papers that

are evidently not sufficiently well prepared to bother the referees

with. However, I think that it is gradually sinking into people's

consciousness that the journal operates according to the same

standards for the selection of papers as other leading journals: we

have the same high standards of reviewing and, indeed, often have the

same reviewers as the other leading journals. This can be quite useful

when, for example, a reviewer tells us that he has previously reviewed

a paper for another journal and that it was rejected.

 

To an extent we can identify, also, papers that have been prepared for

a different journal and then rejected. Absurd as it may seem, authors

do not bother to re-organize their paper to fit the Instructions for

Authors of Information Research. The don't provide a structured

abstract, the sections and sub-sections are numbered and the

references do not follow the APA 5th edition standard. Sometimes these

are rejected following their being read by myself and/or another

editor, sometimes the author is advised to think again, re-organize

the paper and re-submit. Some do resubmit, others realise that the

game is up and we never hear from them again.

In this issue

 

Once again, we have a variety of contributions, with authors from

Cuba, Denmark, Finland, Lithuania, Spain, Sweden and the USA. One of

the contributions is the multi-authored debate first published on the

Weblog, with authors from Australia, Canada, Finland and the UK.

 

The subjects of the papers are as diverse as the geographical

distribution of the authors: Pirkola explores the effectiveness of

search engines in identifying new Websites in different countries,

noting that Google and Live Search are biased towards sites in the

USA, while the pan-European engine Virgilio does a better job on

European sites than either of the US search engines. Not surprising,

perhaps, but it does seem that Google and Live Search really ought to

be doing a better job with European sites by now. Perhaps their

managers will read this and think about what to do.

 

I must admit that much of what is written on bibliometrics bores me to

tears, it seems that much work in this area is done simply because it

can be done, rather than with the aim of casting any light on any

information problem of concern. I'm happy to say that Bo Jarneving's

use of bibliometrics to explore the research productivity of the

Western Gotland region of Sweden is rather more interesting, it

reveals the complexity of research relationships and collaboration in

the regional and shows that global collaboration (i.e., between

Swedish and foreign institutions) is the most common form, with

collaboration between Swedish institutions taking second place.

 

One of the interesting things that has happened since we begain to

accept papers in Portuguese and Spanish is that more authors with

these native languages are actually submitting papers in English. The

paper by José Manuel Morales-del-Castillo and his colleagues is a case

in point. The subject here is the development of an automatic

'selective dissemination of information' or 'recommender' system for

the field of digital libraries. The system uses a thesaurus, user

profiles and RSS feeds to deliver information on resources to those

interested in digital libraries and, at this stage of development, is

said to be 'reasonably effective in terms of precision and recall'.

The difficult part for automatic systems, of course, is getting beyond

the 'reasonably effective' level, so we await further reports on the

development of D-Fussion with interest.

 

Another paper with a Spanish interest (and collaboration with Cuba) is

in Spanish and deals with the historical and epistemological

development of paradigms in information science. Basing their research

on a review of the literature, the authors conclude that there have

been three major paradigms in the field: the physical, the cognitive

and the social—ways of defining the nature of information and

information science. The authors suggest that the literature reveals

the collapse of the cognitive paradigm in recent years and the

emergence of the social (and, we might add, behavioural).

 

The role of memory institutions (archives, libraries and museums) in

European projects is the subject of Zinaida Manžuch's paper. Based on

her Ph.D. dissertation, the paper reveals that archives are the least

visible of the memory institutions in these projects and that the

projects are concerned with resources almost to the exclusion of the

social and communicative role of the institutions in society. This

strikes me as an important point to make and one that the various

agencies of the European Union might take into account in future

funding.

 

Stephen Paling is our sole contributor from the USA in this issue and

he is concerned with identifying the emergence of a new area of

research, which he designates Literature and Art Informatics. To map

this emergent field he employs a statistical technique called multiple

correspondence analysis, which is used to present data graphically, in

the hope of revealing relationships that may be difficult to spot in

data tables. In this paper, the author's aim is mainly to demonstrate

the method, but he also derives conclusions on the relationships

between authors and the application of information technology in their

work.

 

The final paper (properly speaking) is by Jette Hyldeg&oring;rd of the

Royal School of Library and Information Science in Copenhagen and

deals with the relationship between personality traits and group-based

information behaviour. The author chooses (unlike some previous

researchers) to use the full form of the NEO Personality Inventory

Revised, the most widely used of the instruments based on the

five-factor model of human personality. Perhaps the most interesting

finding (although not altogether surprising) is that the associations

between personality and group behaviour are rather complex. I say, not

altogether surprising because, of course, group dynamics and

interpersonal relationships will intervene in group situations and,

for example, someone who is uncertain about his or her abilities in

searching may have their confidence boosted by the way in which other

members of the group support and reward his/her behaviour. Clearly,

there is more interesting work to be done in this area.

 

We also have a 'non-paper' in this issue: I decided that it might be

useful to present here the debate that took place between Reijo

Savolainen and myself (with contributions from others) on the

relationship between 'behaviour' and 'practice' as terms employed in

information behaviour research. I am reprinting it here because it may

achieve wider readership and I think that debates of this kind are too

rare in our field.

 

We have the usual set of book reviews in this issue covering a wide

range of topics. Two of them deal with collections of reviews, the

Annual Review of Information Science and Technology and Information

science in transition, edited by Alan Gilchrist, which was originally

published as an issue of the Journal of Information Science. The

remainder deal with topics as diverse as iWork, Apple's answer to

Microsoft Office and the role of book publishing in the modern world.

Something, in other words, for everyone.

Finally

 

There has been news, once again, of more financial problems in

libraries and their impact upon journal subscriptions. For example, in

California the state universities are facing significant budget cuts

and the University of California Libraries have already advised

publishers that they are scrutinizing all subscriptions. The

University of Amsterdam has shut down its open access publishing fund,

which paid publishers in return for open access to publications from

staff members - a response to the economic climate, it is said. No

doubt this will be the first of a number of such economies.

 

One of these days, but I'm not holding my breath, those directing the

affairs of our universities will come to a realisation that spending

money to subsidise the publication of OA journals makes much more

sense than bolstering the profits of the commercial publishers. The

problem of course, is that each Vice Chancellor, Rector or university

President is concerned only with his or her little fiefdom and the

amount of money involved at present, in terms of total national spend,

is too small in public accounts terms to attract the interest of

politicians. So, the antiquated process bumbles along, with

self-archiving as a kind of sticking plaster on the system.

 

We need a campaign for true open access journals like Information

Research: no author charges, no subscriptions, just free access to

publish and free access to read, achieving maximum social benefit.

 

We have one conference announcement on the contents page in this

issue. ISIC: the information behaviour conference (as it is now

called) - an essential meeting for all concerned with this area of

research. There's a link to the Call for Papers, which other editors

may care to note and advertise. We also have a Website for the whole

series of conferences, which is still under development.

 

My thanks, as usual, to the Associate Editors, copy-editors and

referees for helping to bring this collection to your screen.

Subject: [Asis-l] New issue of Information Research

 

With apologies for cross-posting and the length of the message.

The new issue of Information Research will be available to all some time after
1030 GMT tonight.  Here is the Editorial

In this issue

We have a diverse set of papers in this issue, with, however, some
relationships. Thus, two papers deal with aspects of the information
professions and five are Web-related.

Turning first to the two papers on the profession or professions. In one, a
Working Paper, Miriam Vieira da Cunha has analysed job vacancies in Brazil,
advertised on the Internet. Her principal finding is rather interesting, given
the 'hype' surrounding the idea of the new information professional:

    Yet, in spite of the changes and of the reorganization of the workspace, and
of new partnerships, the informational field in Brazil still is resistant to
expansion, and shows little sign of change. We must conclude that job
opportunities in the information field in our country continue to be dominated
by the traditional professionals. The data shows that the typical professional
advertised using the specific sites and discussion lists on the Internet
between January 2005 and February 2008 is a librarian who is a graduate in
Library Studies, with information technology experience, required to perform
technical and management functions in a private institution in São Paulo.

The other paper dealing with a professional group is by Hemalata Iyer on the
development and implementation of standards for visual resources management. In
this, the first of two papers (the second will be published in the next issue),
the author presents the organization's view on what is needed through an
analysis of job advertisements. Perhaps because of the focus on a very narrow
area of professional activity, her conclusions are very different from those of
da Cunha

    Overall, visual resources appears to be an emerging area of knowledge and
expertise that needs to be systematically addressed. This is indeed a
profession in transition moving from slide curators and slide librarians to a
field that encompasses a broad range of skills applicable in a wide range of
environments.

The five Web-related papers are quite diverse: Deborah Soun Chung and Kwan Yi
examine how news stories are shared on the Delicious Website; EunKyung Chung
and JungWon Yoon explore the differences between user-supplied tags and search
query terms for images through an analysis of user-supplied tags on the Flickr
photography site and Web search terms; and Sara Kjellberg explores scholarly
blogging practice within a framework based on genre theory. These three papers
are about interaction, the remaining two in this group deal with publication,
although in different ways. First, in a contribution in Spanish, Enrique
Orduña-Malea and Joséö-Antonio Ontalba-Ruipéörez, propose metrics for
determining the impact of Web newspapers through their citation on the Menéame
social bookmarking site. In the second paper Mohammad Hanief Bhat presents the
results of research on open access publishing in Indian research institutions,
finding that very little of the output of these institutions is openly
available and then mainly through Indian open access journals.

The final paper, which doesn't fit into either of these two groups is a study of
the information needs and the information sources of dairy farmers in Inner
Mongolia by Yuanfeng Zhao, Ruijin Zhang and K. K. Klein who conclude:

    Small-scale farmers in the key dairy production area of Inner Mongolia still
operate their businesses on the basis of limited industry information but most
have recognized the need for improved availability of accurate information and
appear willing to share in the cost of providing it. There appears to be an
opportunity for government and private organizations to work together to
develop advanced information dissemination systems for small dairy producers in
Inner Mongolia.

Finally, we have a smaller than usual set of book reviews (which probably means
we shall have a lot in December!). They are diverse, as usual, however,
covering ontologies for the Semantic Web, the economics of ordinary knowledge,
managing information for research, searching and how to employ graphics
effectively. There should be something for everyone there. I would particularly
recommend Hardin's book on ordinary knowledge as offering ideas for information
research.

My thanks, as usual, to the Associate Editors, copy-editors, referees and my
colleagues at Lund University Libraries for helping to bring this collection to
your screen.
As an aside - the names alone will tell you that we have an international
authorship - in fact, the authors come from Brazil, Canada, China, India, South
Korea, Spain, Sweden and the USA.

Library and Archival Security

      Call for papers

 

From: Open Lib/Info Sci Education Forum [mailto:JESSE@LISTSERV.UTK.EDU] On Behalf Of Christopher Brown-Syed PhD
Sent: Monday, 5 October 2009 10:46 AM
To: JESSE@LISTSERV.UTK.EDU
Subject: Call for Papers - Misinformation

 

In proclaiming October 2009 National Information Literacy month, President Barack Obama said:

 

"Though we may know how to find the information we need, we must also know how to evaluate it. Over the past decade, we have seen a crisis of authenticity emerge. We now live in a world where anyone can publish an opinion or perspective, whether true or not, and have that opinion amplified within the information marketplace. At the same time, Americans have unprecedented access to the diverse and independent sources of infor- mation, as well as institutions such as libraries and universities, that can help separate truth from fiction and signal from noise." 

 

The journal, Library and Archival Security, would welcome submissions on the topic of misinformation on the Internet, including the Web and Social Networks, and means of addressing it. Now entering its 23rd volume year, L&AS is a peer-reviewed publication of Routledge, a division of Taylor and Francis. 

 

Original research, case studies, book and software reviews, and opinionated editorials on all aspects of physical and communications security, problem behavior, conservation, preservation, disaster preparedness and recovery, and related legal and social issues are welcome. For instructions for authors, please visit our Web site or contact the Editor at the addresses below.

Library Trends

            Call for papers:  Digital Knowledge

 

-----Original Message-----
From: asis-l-bounces@asis.org [mailto:asis-l-bounces@asis.org] On Behalf Of Paul Marty

To: Asis-l@asis.org
Subject: [Asis-l] CFP: Library Trends -- Digital Knowledge

 

 

CALL FOR PAPERS -- LIBRARY TRENDS

 

The editors of Library Trends are pleased to announce plans for a 

special issue titled "Involving Users in the Co-Construction of 

Digital Knowledge in Libraries, Archives, and Museums."

 

This special issue will be guest edited by Drs. Paul F. Marty and 

Michelle M. Kazmer, College of Communication and Information, Florida 

State University, with Dr. Corinne Jorgensen (Florida State 

University), Katherine Burton Jones (Harvard Divinity School), and 

Richard J. Urban (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign).

 

 

DESCRIPTION

 

Many libraries, archives, and museums provide their users with social 

computing environments that include the ability to tag collections, 

annotate objects, and otherwise contribute their thoughts to the 

knowledge base of the institution. Information professionals and users 

have responded to the transition to a web 2.0 world of user-created 

content by developing open source tools to coordinate these activities 

and researching the best ways to involve users in the co-creation of 

digital knowledge.

 

This rapid influx of new technologies and new methods of interacting 

with users has come at a time when libraries, archives, and museums 

still struggle to share data across their own institutions, let alone 

between different types of institutions. Information professionals in 

libraries, archives, and museums had barely begun to make progress 

developing crosswalks and data interoperability standards when, as 

social computing became the norm on the web, providing the ability for 

users to manipulate data changed from a cool toy to a basic 

expectation. Moving forward -- and keeping pace with user expectations 

-- requires the coordination of many different users (in all their 

variety) as they contribute, participate, shape, and create all types 

of data in all types of contexts.

 

We need to consider what social computing really means for the future 

of libraries, archives, and museums, and think carefully about the 

future trends and long-term implications of involving users in the co-

construction of knowledge online. It is important to have broad-based 

discussions about what happens when users are involved in shaping and 

directing and guiding the development of online libraries, archives, 

and museums and their information resources.

 

For this issue of Library Trends, therefore, we seek authors who can 

step back and think broadly about those issues that are raised when we 

bring users into the mix in various ways and at various points in the 

data/information/knowledge life-cycle. We are interested in receiving 

high-level theory pieces, supported by research data of course, but 

with a focus on the long-term trends involved and their implications 

for libraries, archives, and museums. In particular, we are looking 

for papers that explore the future trends and long-term implications 

of the many different ways in which information professionals in 

libraries, archives, and museums have, can, and should involve their 

users in the co-construction of digital knowledge based on their 

online collections.

 

Sample questions include, but are certainly not limited to:

 

* How are libraries, archives, and museums implementing user-

contributed data / descriptions of artifacts, objects, or collections 

on their websites? What are the long-term implications of involving 

users in the co-description, co-cataloguing of digital knowledge?

 

* How are libraries, archives, and museums encouraging users to create 

online collections of personal favorites or similar items on their 

websites? What are the long-term implications of involving users in 

the co-creation, co-curation of digital knowledge?

 

* How are libraries, archives, and museums encouraging users to 

create / structure their own online environments, designing 

personalized websites or portals specifically suited to individual 

needs? What are the implications of involving users in the design and 

structuring of online interfaces for the development and presentation 

of digital knowledge?

 

* How is the education of library, archives, and museum practitioners 

(and in particular the increase in online and hybrid learning 

technologies) influencing the ways practitioners subsequently 

incorporate technology into their user service environments in 

libraries, archives, and museums?

 

 

IMPORTANT DATES

 

  * Optional Abstract: December 1, 2009 (see below)

 

  * Submission Deadline: March 1, 2010

 

  * Review Decisions: May 15, 2010 (all submissions will be peer-

reviewed)

 

  * Final Versions Due: July 15, 2010

 

  * Publication: Early 2011
