"We are pleased to introduce the Journal of Copyright in Education and Librarianship (https://www.jcel-pub.org/). The journal, founded by Carla Myers (University of Colorado, Colorado Springs), Tucker Taylor (University of South Carolina), and Andrew Wesolek (Clemson University), is a peer-reviewed open-access publication for original articles, reviews and case studies that analyze or describe the strategies, partnerships and impact of copyright law on public, school, academic, and digital libraries, archives, museums, and research institutions and their educational initiatives.
The first issue features papers based on presentations delivered at the 2016 Kraemer Copyright Conference, held this past Spring at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs as well as an essay from Editorial Board member Kenneth D. Crews about the considerations the Board made in drafting the author agreement.
The Journal will be published bi-annually in the fall and spring and welcomes submissions for future issues, including original research and practitioner experience papers, legal analysis, as well as submissions in alternative formats."
