The National Information Standards Organization’s magazine, Information Standards Quarterly (ISQ), will be focusing on preservation, particularly digital preservation in its spring issue. We are seeking contributions for 1-2 page articles regarding real-life experiences with respect to file formats for preservation. This could include evaluating and selecting formats for longevity, standards used, policies and strategies, conversion/normalization, submission vs. dissemination formats, migration to ensure sustainability, or issues encountered.
Interested parties in submitting a contribution should contact Cynthia Hodgson, ISQ Managing Editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief description of the proposed article. Manuscripts are needed by April 19, 2010.
Information Standards Quarterly (ISQ) is NISO’s print and electronic magazine for communicating standards-based technology and best practices in library, publishing, and information technology, particularly where these three areas overlap. ISQ reports on the progress of active developments and also on implementations, case studies, and best practices that show potentially replicable efforts. ISQ is distributed free of charge to all NISO voting and Library Standards Alliance members and to subscribers. It will also be available shortly (including back issues from 2009) in EBSCO’s electronic journals database.
