“New Journal Features Student Research

On July 15, the San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) published the inaugural issue of its Student Research Journal, which provides a venue for the School’s graduate students to share their knowledge with the professional community.

The peer-reviewed research journal is an open-access scholarly publication comprised of SLIS student submissions. “We want it to represent a broad spectrum of scholarship,” said SLIS student Suzanne Scott, who is Editor-in-Chief of the new journal. Articles will feature graduate scholarship in the fields of library and information science, archives and records management, and museum studies.

Nine SLIS students serve on the journal’s editorial team, with guidance provided by faculty advisor Dr. Anthony Bernier and an editorial advisory board.

The journal will receive submissions on a rolling basis and publish two issues annually. It is the university’s first student governed, online, peer-reviewed research journal.

    Great to see this forum created for student work. Sad and frustrating to see a new LIS journal sponsored by a library school not embracing full OA, requiring author copyright transfer and not using an OA-friendly approach such as CC BY-SA 2.5.
