Call for Submissions for Student Research Journal

Are you pursuing a career as a librarian or information professional and need to find a way to stand out among the crowded field of applicants for entry-level positions? Have you taken a course in research methodology or other courses in library and information science, archives and records management, or museum studies that required you to produce a significant work of scholarship in the field? Have you considered joining the scholarly conversation through publication in a peer-reviewed, open access journal?
The San Jose State University (SJSU) School of Information has been helping graduate students gain valuable experience in navigating the scholarly publishing process since 2011 through the SJSU iSchool Student Research Journal (SRJ).

We invite you to submit your manuscript and experience the satisfaction and accomplishment that comes from being accepted for publication in a quality, peer-reviewed, graduate student journal. The opportunity to offer evidence of your active role as a scholar and your engagement with your peers will also set you apart and serve as a valuable experience that will help you to succeed in the increasingly multifaceted field of library and information science.

Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, with issues of SRJ published in the fall and spring. Please visit the SRJ website for submission guidelines, watch a video from our editor-in-chief, and read past issues.
