Webinar: Publication without tears: Tips for aspiring authors

This webinar is one of a series provided by the CILIP Information Literacy Group in support of the Librarians’ Information Literacy Annual Conference (LILAC). These webinars are primarily aimed at LILAC 2016 conference speakers and delegates.

The final webinar in this series – ‘Publication without tears: Tips for aspiring authors’ – was due to be presented by Emma Coonan, Editor of the Journal of Information Literacy (JIL). Unfortunately, the webinar didn’t take place due to technical problems but Emma’s presentation slides are available below.

‘Getting published’ can feel like a baffling process – even for those going through it! This presentation aims to demystify the experience of submitting an article to a journal. It explains what happens inside the ‘black box’ of the publication process, how peer reviewers evaluate articles, and what journal editors are looking for. The presentation contains lots of tips, including

  • ways of dealing with peer reviewers’ comments
  • key questions to help frame your research
  • how to go about structuring your article
  • ways to get started with writing – and to keep going!

Finally, you’ll be invited to consider what you could publish.

Journal of Information Literacy seeks new Managing Editor

Journal of Information Literacy

The Journal of Information Literacy (JIL), the peer-reviewed open access journal published by the CILIP Information Literacy Group, is looking to appoint a new Managing Editor. This key role offers an excellent opportunity to support original information literacy research and to address the interests of diverse IL communities of practice.

The role holder works closely with the Editor-in-Chief to ensure the continuing success of the journal by leading the administration of the journal, co-ordinating publication schedules, and managing the operations of the editorial team.

The role is voluntary but very rewarding, working with a friendly, enthusiastic team and with opportunities to speak, if you wish, at workshops and conferences.

If you would like to be considered for this role, which is unpaid, please send a brief personal statement (no more than 500 words) indicating your ability to undertake the activities listed in the role description. Please send this personal statement, together with a CV, to jinfolit@gmail.com. The deadline for applications is Monday, 11th April 2016.
