GETTING YOUR ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN AN INTERNATIONAL LIS JOURNAL

Wednesday 3rd October 2018, the East African School of Library and Information Sciences (EASLIS) conducted a one day workshop on Getting Your Article Published in an International Library Information Sciences (LIS) Journal.

The workshop was facilitated by Assoc. Prof.  Helena Francke (Swedish School In LIS), her research has primarily focused on the expressions that make use of digital media take, e.g. Concerning credibility and authority, Information seeking, Publishing, and Organizational development. Lately, she has studied new tasks that academic libraries take on with regard to publishing and evaluation, e.g.  the Open e-services project which brings together expertise on Open access, Open standards and Open file formats.  She has also collaborated with researchers in Pedagogical work on a project which investigates the use of apps in the school education, SAPP.

The targeted audience were all EASLIS staff and graduate students (both Masters and PhD.). During the workshop, they discussed a number of issues of relevance when writing an article for a LIS journal indexed in the Web of Science (or equivalent). Topics that were addressed included:

·        Identifying suitable journals and figuring out their requirements

·        How to frame the article appropriately for an internal audience

·        How to structure an article and which parts to devote most attention to

·        How to deal with reviewer comments etc.

The discussions also targeted building on example articles, the participants’ own work, and journal information from websites and databases. Participants are asked to think through questions and experiences beforehand and to bring one to two examples of their work, either already published journal articles or articles that are work-in-progress.
