The Code4Lib Journal (C4LJ) exists to foster community and share information
among those interested in the intersection of libraries, technology, and the

The Code4Lib Journal is now accepting proposals for publication in its 13th
issue. Don't miss out on this opportunity to share your ideas and experiences.
To be included in the 13th issue, which is scheduled for publication in mid
April 2011, please submit articles, abstracts, or proposals at
http://journal.code4lib.org/submit-proposal or to journal@code4lib.org
by Friday, January 7, 2011. 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 hypothetical)
* 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 11 issues published on our website: http://journal.code4lib.org.

Remember, for consideration for the 13th issue, please send proposals,
abstracts, or draft articles to journal@code4lib.org no later than
Friday, January 7, 2011.

Send in a submission. Your peers would like to hear what you are doing.
