Dear Colleagues:

We're pleased to announce the first issue of the open access Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication. Read below for more.

======================
For immediate release 
May 16, 2012 

Inaugural Issue of Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication Released! 

The inaugural issue of the Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication (JLSC) is now available (http://jlsc-pub.org/jlsc/), featuring open access, peer-reviewed research, about library-led scholarly communication initiatives, online publishing and digital projects. Journal content is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license. The journal is a not-for-profit endeavor, published by Pacific University Library. In support of open and equitable opportunities for authors, JLSC does not charge article submission or publication fees. 

“Because libraries are actively working to shape the scholarly communication sphere, there was a need for this important work to be specifically represented in the literature. JLSC meets this need by providing a dedicated ‘home’ for librarians to share their ideas about institutional and digital repositories, open education initiatives, library e-publishing services, authors’ rights advocacy efforts, data curation and other emerging issues,” says editor Marisa Ramirez (Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo). 

JLSC is open to experimental formats and innovative alternatives to the traditional publishing system. 

“We welcome original research and practitioner experience papers, as well as submissions in alternative formats, like audio, video, code, datasets and other formats. To the extent possible, we also hope to use JLSC as a testbed to reflect emerging approaches in this field, such as new forms of peer review and alternative metrics for measuring impact” says Isaac Gilman (Pacific University), editor. “As the roles of libraries and librarians continue to evolve, JLSC will be the place to learn about developments in scholarly communication,” adds Gilman. 

Marisa Ramirez (Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo) and Isaac Gilman (Pacific University) co-edit the journal in collaboration with an editorial board comprised of experienced and respected library practitioners. 

Founding board members include Allyson Mower (University of Utah), Amy Buckland (McGill University), Ann Lally (University of Washington), Faye Chadwell (Oregon State University), JQ Johnson (University of Oregon), Katherine Johnson (California Institute of Technology), Lisa Schiff (California Digital Library), Michael Boock (Oregon State University), Pamela Bluh (University of Maryland, School of Law), Paul Royster (University of Nebraska), Rebecca Kennison (Columbia University), Sarah Shreeves (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Shawn Martin (University of Pennsylvania), Susan Wells Parham (Georgia Institute of Technology), Terry Owen (University of Maryland). 

The inaugural issue is dedicated to the late Dr. Deborah Barreau (University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill), founding board member. 

The first issue is available online at http://jlsc-pub.org/jlsc/.
