CFP - Code4lib

Do you want to expand on your Code4Lib conference presentation in
written form? Did the recent Code4Lib conference give you ideas or
renewed enthusiasm for a project that you would like to share with the
Code4Lib Community. Why not submit a proposal to the Code4Lib journal?
The Code4Lib Journal (C4LJ) exists to foster community and share
information among those interested in the intersection of libraries,
technology, and the future.

The Code4Lib Journal is now accepting proposals for publication in its
10th issue. Don't miss out on this opportunity to share your ideas and
experiences. To be included in the 10th issue, which is scheduled for
publication in late June 2010, please submit articles, abstracts, or
proposals at or to by Friday, March 20, 2010. When
submitting, please include the title or subject of the proposal in the
subject line of the email message.

C4LJ encourages creativity and flexibility, and the editors welcome
submissions across a broad variety of topics that support the mission of
the journal. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

* Practical applications of library technology (both actual and
* Technology projects (failed, successful, or proposed), including how
they were done and challenges faced
* Case studies
* Best practices
* Reviews
* Comparisons of third party software or libraries
* Analyses of library metadata for use with technology
* Project management and communication within the library environment
* Assessment and user studies

C4LJ strives to promote professional communication by minimizing the
barriers to publication. While articles should be of a high quality,
they need not follow any formal structure. Writers should aim for the
middle ground between blog posts and articles in traditional refereed
journals. Where appropriate, we encourage authors to submit code
samples, algorithms, and pseudo-code. For more information, visit C4LJ's
Article Guidelines or browse articles from the first 8 issues published
on our website:

You want to share. Your colleagues want to hear about it. We're looking
for proposals. Go for it!
