Library Student Journal and other Open Access Publishing Endeavors

Much to my delight and surprise, I am now a Proofreader on the Library Student Journal.

For those of you who don't know of it, the LSJ is an Open Access journal that was founded last year by some students at the University of Buffalo. In addition to articles, it also publishes reviews and editorial-- all written by LIS students.

"Open Access" not only means that the content is free to read, because the journal operates with money gleaned from donations and labor from volunteers (like yours truly). The result of this is a professional-level publication that everyone has an opportunity to access, use, and enjoy, and whose copyright is more a matter of Creative Commons license.

For all who are interested in Open Access publishing, more information can be found at Peter Suber's blog. as well as at the LSJ's About page.
