Call for Full Papers: Practical Academic Librarianship: The International Journal of the SLA Academic Division

Practical Academic Librarianship (PAL) is a peer-reviewed, open access journal for all academic librarians and information professionals serving academic departments or affiliated institutions including centers, institutes, specialized collections, and special units within or related toacademic units. Well-written manuscripts that are of interest to these communities will be considered, including: implementation of new initiatives and best practices; original and significant research findings with practical applications; analysis of issues and trends; descriptive narratives of successful and unsuccessful ventures; and examination of the role of libraries in meeting specialized client needs.

PAL publishes items as soon as they are ready by adding articles to the "current" volume's Table of Contents. The journal publishes two issues a year. The first issue runs January 1 - June 30 and the second issue runs July 1 - December 31. Our current issues can be accessed at https://journals.tdl.org/pal/index

The Journal publishes two categories of works:

· Peer reviewed research papers (original research): not more than 25 single-spaced pages

· Think pieces (intended to spur discussion, not blind peer-reviewed): 3-15 single-spaced pages

Authors need to register at https://journals.tdl.org/pal/user/register with the journal prior to submitting, or if already registered can simply log in (https://journals.tdl.org/index/login) and begin the 5 step process.
Warmest regards,
