School Libraries Worldwide - Current Call for Papers

School Libraries Worldwide - Current Call for Papers | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

School Libraries Worldwide is the official professional and research journal of the International Association of School Librarianship. It is published twice yearly, in January and July, and is available online and through select periodical databases. School Libraries Worldwide publishes new works of current research and scholarship on any aspect of school librarianship. All papers are double-blind peer reviewed and adhere to the highest editorial standards.

 

Outliers: School Librarianship Enables Success in All Environments (Volume 19, Number 1, January 2013)

 

This issue of School Libraries Worldwide is based on the theme of Outliers: School Librarianship Enables Success in All Environments.

 

How do school libraries throughout the world enable and ensure success? This issue is centered on the idea that school libraries and librarians can offer all students and stakeholders opportunities to expand knowledge, gain skills, and develop expertise. This theme was identified by social scientist Malcolm Gladwell who said in his 2008 book Outliers: The Story of Success:

 

"We overlook just how large a role we all play…in determining who makes it…To build a better world we need to replace the patchwork of lucky breaks and arbitrary advantages today that determine success…with a society that provides opportunities for all (pp.74,78)."

 

For this issue, we encourage the submission of original research papers that explore how ways school and youth librarianship and libraries serve a range of users and contexts.

 

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

 

• Services for parents, community members, and other stakeholders; 

• Services to underserved, underserved, gifted, talented, special, or minority
students;

• Services in unusual contexts such as highly rural, highly urban, virtual, or
non-institutional environments;

• Collaborations between school librarians and community or public organizations;

• Recruitment and/or education of librarians in other careers or contexts;

• Programs and support for language learners and other challenged groups;

• Programs to inspire reading and information skills in reluctant students; or

• Analysis of outliers in large data sets.

 

Researchers are invited to submit papers reporting their own original research that has not been published elsewhere.
Authors who wish to know more about the issue theme should contact the editors
to discuss their interests.

 

School Libraries Worldwide also welcomes submissions of excellent original research on any topic relating to school librarianship for the open portion of the journal.

 

Submission guidelines are available online at School Libraries Worldwide and papers can be submitted online at http://slw.cci.fsu.edu

 

Deadline for submissions of full papers: October 1, 2012.

International Perspectives on School Library Education: From Face to
Face to Distance Education (Volume 18, Number 2, July 2012)

 

This issue of School Libraries Worldwide will center on the theme

For this issue, we encourage papers that explore how changes in the profession as well as in education delivery systems have influenced school library education programs.

 

School Libraries Worldwide also welcomes submissions of excellent research on any topic relating to school librarianship for the open portion of the journal.

 

Deadline for submissions of full papers: April 15, 2012.

 

Authors interested in contributing to this issue should contact the guest editors, Allison G. Kaplan at agkaplan@wisc.edu
