Call for Reviewers:

The Journal of New Librarianship (JoNL) is pleased to announce it has recently migrated to a new platform (OJS) and is generously being hosted by the University of Colorado Boulder University Libraries. As part of this transition and relaunch, and in keeping with the journal's commitment to diversity, equity, and plurality of viewpoints, JoNL is seeking subject expert librarians with a diverse range of experiences to volunteer as potential peer reviewers. The volunteers will be added to our list of peer reviewers, to whom LIS articles may be assigned for double-blind review based upon subject matter. Peer reviewers are provided a rubric when evaluating submissions, and volunteers are contacted no more frequently than twice a year to offer their time and expertise. Turn-around time for reviews is typically 30 days.

JoNL was established in 2016 as an independent open access LIS journal that provides an outlet for emerging and interdisciplinary scholarship that does not fit within the narrowly defined subject specialization of existing journals. JoNL is a Diamond open access publication in which authors retain full copyright of their work through CC-BY licensing. There are no processing fees, nor is there a cost to access published materials. Since its launch, JoNL has published 5 volumes (9 issues total), and is recognized in the Ulrich Periodical Index as a peer-reviewed academic journal. More information about the journal, including a summary of the editorial and peer review process, can be located on the about page: https://newlibs.org/index.php/jonl/about 

Individuals interested in being added to JoNL's list of potential peer reviewers are encouraged to fill out this form: https://tinyurl.com/JoNL2021PeerReview  Additional questions can be forwarded to the JoNL communications editor, Claire Du Laney <<cdulaney@unomaha.edu>>
