CHICAGO — The ALA Office for Research & Statistics invites nominations for a peer review panel for the ALA Research Series.
The ALA Research Series expands the knowledge base of library research by publishing quantitative and/or qualitative research and analysis that addresses topics important to libraries, librarians and education in the profession–accessible, useful, practical, sustainable research.
The series is distinguished by:
- Encouraging research based on methods other than surveys, such as observational research, content analysis, grounded theory research and ethnographic technique, as well as research that blends different methods.
- It is not a statistical series.
- It is published annually, monographs and edited volumes.
The ALA Research Series is a peer reviewed publication with an editorial panel comprised of experienced library researchers and practitioners. The review panel has membership representing a broad array of expertise and perspectives in library research topics.
Two positions will be filled through this nomination process. Each reviewer serves a three-year term. Terms begin summer 2011.
The deadline for nominations is April 29, 2011. Please go to http://www.ala.org/ala/professionalresources/publications/alaresearchseries/peerreviewpanel/index.cfm for more information about the call for nominations.
