Call for contributors: Brief Reviews of Books and Products
Would you be interested in helping your community learn about current, important books and products? We are seeking librarians and other scholarly communications professionals to write brief (500-1000 word) reviews of books or products that are relevant to the community. A list of the available items for review is pasted online. If you have an idea for a resource that is not listed, email the reviews editors and follow the instructions posted on the Guidelines for Brief Reviews of Books and Products.
Have you written a book or developed a product (platform, tool, software, app, website, etc.) that you would like to see reviewed in JLSC? Please email the reviews editors and we will add it to the list we share with reviewers. Because these reviews are intended to be independent and critical rather than promotional, we do not accept reviews written by authors, publishers, or developers of the work under review.
For further information and guidelines for authors of the Brief Reviews, please see the Guidelines for Brief Reviews of Books and Products. Contact co-editors Christie Hurrell and Julia Lovett at email@example.com.
About Brief Reviews of Books and ProductsThis section provides a forum for description and critical evaluation of the quality, effectiveness, and value of recent books or products. We welcome reviews of new books on scholarly communication, open access, intellectual property, innovations in publishing, institutional repositories, and other topics within JLSC’s scope. We also accept reviews of products (platforms, tools, websites, software, etc.) that are either new or of growing significance within the scholarly communication community (see 101 Innovations in Scholarly Communication for examples of such products).

Meet the JLSC Team
You can find a list of JLSC
’s editors and editorial board members on the journal’s masthead page
, but a simple list doesn’t communicate much about who we are, what we do, how we engage with scholarly communication, or how our research interests intersect with yours. This Open Access Week, we thought we’d take the opportunity to introduce ourselves more fully. Some of us are new to the journal, and some of us will soon be saying goodbye, but for now we are the 2019 JLSC Team: Editors, Board Members, and Publisher
