  2. 2. Our experience with LSJ – the beginning ______________________________
  3. 3.

  4. 4. Our experience with LSJ – the beginning ______________________________ December 2005 … Original idea conceived at student meeting January 2006 … Grant applied for February 2006 … Grant awarded March 2006 … Editorial Staff formed April 2006 … Temporary website posted/Call for Board Members May 2006 … Editorial Board formed June 2006 … First official call for papers July 2006 … Permanent website posted September 2006 … First issue published How we started:
  5. 5. Our experience with LSJ – the first year ______________________________ <ul><li>In its first year LSJ has published approximately 40 papers… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>from authors in North America, Australia, UK, Ireland, India, Turkey, and Iran, representing a wide range of LIS specializations </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Editorial Board represents North America, UK, Ireland, Philippines, and Bangladesh </li></ul><ul><li>This summer we advertised internationally to fill openings in the staff, and we hired 22 staff members </li></ul><ul><li>It’s primary purpose is review </li></ul><ul><li>It has also been a valuable source of advice when difficult issues arise </li></ul><ul><ul><li>covering a wide range of LIS topics, including: Archives, Knowledge Management, Information Science, Native Americans in librarianship, and even a Christmas story about cataloging </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Our experience with LSJ – the first year ______________________________ <ul><li>A naturally high turnover rate </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The application/selection process takes time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Training takes time </li></ul></ul>Ongoing issues: <ul><li>Communication amongst a widely-dispersed staff </li></ul><ul><li>Plagiarism </li></ul><ul><li>Technical issues </li></ul><ul><li>Time, time, time </li></ul>— the real currency of OA is time .
  7. 7. Our experience with LSJ – peer review ______________________________ <ul><li>Every paper published in the Articles section of the journal has been reviewed by at least two Editorial Board Members and at least one outside reviewer </li></ul><ul><li>Review is anonymous and every reviewer is given the same guidelines and the same review form </li></ul><ul><li>Reviewers can make comments for the authors to see and comments for the editors’ eyes only </li></ul>
  8. 8. Our experience with LSJ – What we believe ______________________________ <ul><li>In many ways, the average LIS student today understands the average user better than does the average LIS professional </li></ul><ul><li>We can learn from one another across political borders and across boundaries of specialization, age, race, religion, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Librarians can benefit — and benefit from — the Open Access movement (more on that later) </li></ul><ul><li>LIS students are perfectly placed to bring libraries into new worlds… </li></ul>LSJ will be a forum for discussion of issues of current interest to LIS students. Some of the most exciting ideas in the field are coming from the student ranks and I hope we can increase the impact of student research. — from the first call for papers
  9. 9. Our experience with LSJ – What we believe ______________________________ Wuzzup, Eli? I am totally rocking this hat.
  10. 10. Our experience with LSJ - What we believe ______________________________ I can’t believe it took you five tries to take the picture – and this was the best you had! Yah, well, your shoes are really pointy!
  11. 11. Our experience with LSJ - What we believe ______________________________ <ul><li>Second Life, a multi-user virtual environment (MUVE) is crawling with LIS professionals. </li></ul><ul><li>The InfoIsland Archipelago serves as the “library area” of SL, offering virtual reference for both real life, and Second Life questions. </li></ul><ul><li>Grand opening: InfoInternational </li></ul><ul><ul><li>reference resources in 7 different languages </li></ul></ul><ul><li>LIS students are extremely active in SL </li></ul><ul><ul><li>and the networking opportunities are incredible </li></ul></ul>

Poutines of the world </li></ul><ul><li>- gravy </li></ul><ul><li>- cheese curds </li></ul><ul><li>- sauce </li></ul><ul><li>Move into Second Life and offer something new </li></ul><ul><li>Start your own journal! </li></ul><ul><li>In the end, it doesn’t matter what you choose to do with your LIS knowledge (data? information? wisdom?!?!)… but please, </li></ul><ul><li>DO SOMETHING! </li></ul>
  18. 18. “ Scholars need the means to launch a new generation of journals committed to open access…. These new journals will no longer invoke copyright to restrict access to and use of the material they publish…. Because price is a barrier to access, these new journals will not charge subscription or access fees, and will turn to other methods for covering their expense.” — excerpt from the Budapest Open Access Initiative, 2002 A library-supported OA model: What is Open Access?
  19. 19. An Open Access journal can be published on a number of different models—it might be self-supporting by advertising or author fees... A library-supported OA model: What is Open Access? ... or it might rely on sponsor donations and volunteer support. <ul><ul><ul><li>A library-centered model differs from most sponsored OA models in that the contribution from the library is primarily from existing library resources (especially server space, expertise, and time) rather than $$ </li></ul></ul></ul>Full publishing —in which the library donates s taff time, expertise, technical support, & covers incidental expenses, as part of a suite of open source OA software Baseline support —in which an online journal publishing software is established on a library server and made available to the community or institution Library-supported Open Access spectrum of commitment
  20. 20. A library-supported OA model: What is Open Access? Why get involved in OA? <ul><li>It’s cheap </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A few trailblazers are showing that OA journals can be published by libraries, alone or as a part of a comprehensive suite of open source software to support scholarly communication </li></ul></ul><ul><li>To stay relevant </li></ul><ul><li>Greater library involvement will benefit OA and users of OA information </li></ul>
