Peer-Review Opportunity & Co-Acquisitions EditorImprove the quality of research and value of publications by volunteering as a peer reviewer. Your expertise will help the authors’ proposals and is a wonderful professional service activity.
A vision for the seriesAs presented to the 2013 ASIS&T Board Meeting I have a vision for developing the series and I invite your contributions. The goals for the series includes, first, to develop the Monograph Series as the resource of choice for accurate, timely, and reliable information about the range of topics of interest to ASIS&T members and practitioners, and second, to do the following:
Got an idea?All members are encouraged to consider participating by submitting proposals for individual authored texts, collaborative texts, or works by newer scholars from all parts of the globe. Peer review volunteers and I will reply to your proposal as soon as possible and help you grow your idea into a monograph proposal.
As acquisitions editor, my goal is to contribute to the quality, technical precision,
and usefulness of our association’s members’ research and teaching
experiences. Based on the ASIS&T mission and vision, I offer
a collegial perspective when pursuing proposal submissions.
Monographs are helpful that establish a topical foundation
for people not yet well-versed in a research area (similar to the ARIST chapters)
as well as detailed monographs that advance research in an information science area.
Proposals for monographs do not require a completed manuscript. Talk with your collaborators, friends, and colleagues about your ideas. Help shape your ideas by completing the Proposal Submission Guidelines and then send them to the acquisitions editor.
Proposal Submission Guidelines
Once your proposal is developed and you choose to submit a manuscript, follow these manuscript preparation guidelines.
Manuscript Preparation Guidelines
Timeline: Manuscripts of particular interest to the IS world and that conform strictly to the manuscript preparation guidelines can be published in as few as three months, although most works can see print within six months.
