Capturing Open Access Publishing Efforts in the International Journal of Librarianship by the Chinese American Librarians Association: A Case Study

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this project update, the presenters will discuss publishing efforts and experiences on the International Journal of Librarianship (IJoL) hosted by the Chinese American Librarians Association (CALA), a National Association of Librarians of Color (NALoC). Since 2016, IJoL is an open access and refereed journal that focuses on research and discussion in all areas of librarianship and information science globally. Most importantly, the journal centers on global audience and connections and recent issues covered timely topics such as sustainability in libraries and artificial intelligence. This presentation will share the logistical components of setting up the open access publication, the process in quality control and management including benefits and challenges. The presenters include the Chief Editor and a Guest Editor of the journal who will share their experiences in supporting the journal as CALA volunteers and supporting the publication, now reaching its fifth year. The speakers will discuss how the journal serves as an important collaboration to engage with librarians from Asia, particularly in China. Attendees will learn more about this journal platform and its process and be engaged in discussing how libraries and associations can manage and promote and support research in open access publishing.
