Manuscript Preparation Rules And Guidelines, February 2018, 2018 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Manuscript Preparation Rules And Guidelines, February 2018

Insecta Mundi

Insecta Mundi is an ongoing experiment in publishing. Our goal is to produce taxonomic publications that are free for authors (no page charges) and openly accessible for users (see Skelley and Thomas 2007). To accomplish this, we require the participation of authors in the publication process. Authors are required to make their manuscripts publishable by our standards prior to submission. Authors unwilling or unable to follow the guidelines should ask friends for help or consider paying to have their article published in journals which charge for the services.

The purposes for these rules and guidelines are to ensure consistency in ...

Cq Reviewers’ Reactions To My Editorial Policies, Michael Lynn 2018 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

Cq Reviewers’ Reactions To My Editorial Policies, Michael Lynn

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] Peer review is an important part of the scientific process. It helps to separate good research from bad so that scarce journal pages and readers’ attention go the former rather than the latter. As editor of Cornell Hospitality Quarterly (CQ), I am particularly dependent on reviewers’ help because CQ is a cross-disciplinary journal whose submissions cover literatures and methodologies that vastly exceed my ken.


The Evolving Institutional Repository Landscape, Judy Luther 2018 Informed Strategies

The Evolving Institutional Repository Landscape, Judy Luther

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

Advances in technology affecting content creation and digital dissemination continue to reshape the role of academic libraries. The impact of these changes requires reimagining a strategy for the library built around digital collections–not only those acquired from publishers but the growing variety of files created in the development of scholarship and learning. Institutional Repositories (IRs) are emerging as a vehicle for new directions in how libraries can support the academic community both locally and globally.

To gain insights and gather data on IR operations, we conducted interviews, an open survey, and web research to obtain a snapshot of the ...

A Study On Positive Attitude Towards Contribution In Institutional Repository System Among The Faculty Members, Sankar P Mr, Kavitha E S Dr

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Each educational institution will define which their potential authors are, depending on the documents that it decides to include in the repository. The study aimed to study the perception on various factors of academic parameters to deposit in the Institutional Repositories System. Majorities of the institutions had institutional repositories and three fourth of the respondents were depositing their works in their institutional repositories. The study noticed that there is a significant difference between experienced in depositing in IR and their willingness factor of advocacy, accessibility, altruistic intention and positive impact of self-archiving. It is inferred that among the professional recognition ...

Information Literacy In The Digital Age: Myths And Principles Of Digital Literacy, Bernd W. Becker

Bernd W. Becker

Librarians have traditionally served as the champions of information literacy, adopting it as a core principle of the profession and creating a movement that tries to facilitate fair, equal access to knowledge and its creation. There are plenty of publications on this topic, but as the Information Age has become the Digital Age, there also needs to be a discussion of how information literacy is evolving. More specifically, librarians are now finding themselves shouldering the responsibilities of digital literacy alongside traditional approaches to information literacy, especially considering how more and more information needs can only be met via digital resources ...

Determining Cognitive Distance Between Publication Portfolios Of Evaluators And Evaluees In Research Evaluation: An Exploration Of Informetric Methods, A.I.M. Jakaria Rahman

A.I.M. Jakaria Rahman

When an expert panel evaluates research groups in a discipline specific research evaluation, it is an open question how one can determine the extent to which the panel members are able to evaluate the research groups. The expertise of the panel members should be well-matched with the research groups to ensure the quality and trustworthiness of the evaluation. Panel members who are credible experts in the field are most likely to provide valuable, relevant recommendations and suggestions that should lead to improved research quality. Due to absence of methods to determine the cognitive distance between evaluators and evaluees, this doctoral ...

Gender Demographics And Perception In Librarianship, Patricia Mars 2018 Catholic University

Gender Demographics And Perception In Librarianship, Patricia Mars

School of Information Student Research Journal

This article is an examination of the history of gender demographics in the field of librarianship. The historic development and subsequent "feminization" of librarianship continues to influence the gender wage gap and the disproportionate leadership bias in the field today. This article examines the stereotyping of librarians and the cyclical effect of genderizing the profession. Consideration of current trends and data in librarian demographics demonstrates a consistent decrease in gender diversity, accompanied by a troubling lack of women leaders and executives. Additionally, this article explores options for combating the gender perceptions that negatively impact women in library and information science ...
