Call for Classic Research Studies: Evidence Based Library and Information Practice


Can you identify a research study that has had a major influence on your practice or library and information practice in general? Are you keen to make more people aware of this research and its value? Are you willing to write a summary and appraisal of this research?

Evidence Based Library and Information Practice (EBLIP) is seeking nominations of classic research studies that have impacted practice, had an influence on LIS researchers, and stood the test of time. We need your help to identify these classic studies in our field and commit to writing a summary of that research. Volume 2, Issue 4 (December 2007) of EBLIP published six such Classics, featuring research from Carol Kuhlthau, Joanne Gard Marshall, Robert S. Taylor, and more. We want to continue to highlight past research that is important and bring that research to the attention of new readers. Please consider nominating a great research article to be featured in EBLIP.

For more information, or to nominate a research article, please contact Denise Koufogiannakis Nominations should be accompanied by a full bibliographic citation and an explanation of the contribution of the research to the field of library and information practice. If the article is selected, a schedule for publication and deadlines will be arranged with the Editor.
