CFP: Slavic & East European Information Resources Journal

Deadline: October 1, 2020

This is a call for content to be featured in The Internet column of the journal Slavic & East European Information Resources, vol. 22.

Considering researchers’ and librarians’ almost absolute dependence on remote discovery and access during the coronavirus pandemic, there could hardly be a more appropriate time or venue for you to share your experience with colleagues.

How has your work changed by moving entirely online? What new online tools or resources have you discovered? What role is the internet playing in different SEE regions during the pandemic? Maybe you’re part of a new RuNet literacy project or effort to collect online repositories of Central European historical newspapers. What have been the challenges, the lessons, and the outcomes of such projects, and what work still needs to be done?

These are just a few ideas for the kind of content you might submit for The Internet column, and by no means must submissions deal with the pandemic. If you have something to contribute about the state of digitization efforts, digital materials, or digital applications as they relate to SEE studies or information science, please send that contribution in and we’ll gladly consider it.

Keep in mind that, because they are not peer reviewed, the guidelines for column submissions are more flexible than for articles. Please also consult the general instructions for authors for guidelines on originality, style, manuscript preparation, and preparation of illustrations.

Submissions should be sent to Brendan Nieubuurt at bnieubuu@umich.edu.

The deadline for submissions OCTOBER 1ST, 2020.
