The NMRT Endnotes Committee seeks contributors for the Spring 2018 issue of Endnotes: The Journal of the New Members Round Table. NMRT members, current LIS students, and recent graduates are encouraged to submit manuscripts for consideration.
Publishing with Endnotes is a great way for any early career librarian (including LIS students, recent graduates, and newer members of the Association) to gain experience publishing in a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal:
[W]hile seeking my MLIS… [a] professor offered to take a class paper and co-author with myself and my group partner. This experience has not only informed my professional and publishing career as an Academic Librarian but gave me confidence to apply for jobs with scholarly research expectations.– Tina Budzise-Weaver, published in Endnotes 2016
This has been such a great experience for me. You have all been extremely helpful and encouraging. I appreciate all the time you have taken to read my work and all the feedback you have given. I am sure it will help me throughout my professional career. I will definitely recommend this to everyone I meet looking for a way to begin pursuing publication in the LIS field!– Brady Lund, published in Endnotes 2017
[B]eing able to publish my first article while still in graduate school was an unbelievable confidence booster. To go through the process of peer review, and to feel so supported by the editorial staff, makes me want to continue to publish for the rest of my career…– Kim Myers, published in Endnotes 2016
Those interested in discussing article ideas are encouraged to contact the Editors at firstname.lastname@example.org to determine if the proposal fits the publication’s scope.
Articles should range from 2,000 – 4,000 words and be relevant to LIS students and new library professionals. Endnotes welcomes research papers, conceptual papers, case studies, and literature reviews (more information on these types is available in our complete submission guidelines).
Submissions are accepted throughout the year, but articles received by March 15, 2018 will receive guaranteed consideration for the Spring 2018 issue.
