Call for Full Papers: Codex issue on "Successful Transitions to Academic Research." Due September 1

Codex: The Journal for the Louisiana Chapter of the Association of College and Research Libraries is seeking article submissions for its theme issue “Successful Transitions to Academic Research”. The focus of our issue is the reporting and evaluation of collaborative efforts between academic and school librarians to teach information literacy skills to traditional college students aged 18-20 years. We encourage evidence-based contributions for improving student engagement and learning, as well as approaches which critique present pedagogical practices. The following types of submissions will be accepted until the closing date of September 1, 2011.

·       Research articles on information literacy (IL) programs and initiatives including both course-integrated instruction and formal IL courses in school and university curricula. Articles should be supported by empirical evidence that demonstrate the value or success of the program/initiative, lessons learned, and an applicable list of best practices.
·       Articles that examine the current state of IL pedagogy using applicable theories from literary studies, library and information science, anthropology, sociology or philosophy.
·       Interviews with practitioners in the field, including high school and college level teachers, librarians, and LIS faculty.
·       Essay and opinion pieces on the state of IL and its future, especially in consideration of mobile technologies and changing notions of literacy

NOTE: All submissions should be double-spaced using 12-point Times New Roman (or another simple font), and use the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th or 16th edition.
