Call for Manuscripts
Standpoints: The Electronic Journal of Information Contexts
 
Edited by Kathleen Burnett and Hur-Li Lee
Technical editor, Rebecca Pressman
 
The theme of the 1994 ALISE (Association of Library and Information
Science Education) conference in Los Angeles, "Intellectual Diversity:
Cross Disciplinary Connections and Perspectives" reflects the growing
interest library educators have in acknowledging the urgent need for
broader and more diversified approaches to library and information
studies.  Among the
topics discussed at the conference were various perspectives--such as
multiculturalism and feminist stand point theory--and alternative
research methodologies--such as ethnography. While these perspectives
and approaches are not new to the field, the  conference amplified
voices which were
previously only whispers buried in the chatter.
 
        With the publication of Standpoints the Electronic Journal of
Information Contexts, we hope to address at least one of barriers that
prevent researchers from generating such scholarship--lack of
incentive. Positivist models still dominate the research paradigms of
the field. Researchers are reluctant to engage in projects that employ
alternative perspectives due to perceived difficulties in obtaining
funding and scholarly recognition. Qualitative studies may not be
valued by positivist reviewers and therefore be rejected for
publication. Tenure committees may not look favorably on less
well-established methodologies and may be suspicious of
interdisciplinary efforts.
 
        Some of us who attended the 1994 ALISE conference see the need
for  creating a new forum that will provide an open environment for
different voices representing a variety of points of view on and
approaches to a wide range of concerns in the library and information
field.This refereed electronic journal will be interdisciplinary,
rather than disciplinary, and inclusive, rather than exclusive, in
nature.  It welcomes any sound research that deals with issues related
to information contexts.  The preference will be given to those
studies taking non-traditional perspectives and/or approaches; to
studies asking questions starting from lives of a wider variety of
people; and to studies exhibiting interdisciplinarity. It is the
sincere hope of the editors that the publication of this journal will
add diversity to our field and contribute to its scholarly
development.
 
        Standpoints: the Electronic Journal of Information Contexts is
a new forum for different voices representing a variety of points of
view on and approaches to a wide range of concerns in information
contexts.  Our vision of the journal is an expansive one. We wish to
support an open, interdisciplinary, and inclusive environment devoted
the development of theory and publication of research about
information and its contexts. Some examples of the relationships we
would like to see this journal support include: interpersonal
communication in information contexts; gender studies in
telecommunications; research in the communication of information about
RtabooS subjects; intercultural communication of information; critical
theory as applied to information systems design; information cultures
and counter-cultures; analyses of contemporary technological responses
to the "information gap"; and building a conceptual framework for the
organization of electronic information.  We welcome contributions from
all standpoints and methodologies.
 
        We prefer submissions in html markup format.  These can be
emailed in binary form to:  kburnett@gandalf.rutgers.edu.  We will
also accept plain ascii files at the same address.  If you do not have
access to an e-mail account, you may submit in disk format to the
following address:  Kathleen Burnett, Rutgers University, SCILS, 4
Huntington St.  We can handle both Mac and IBM/DOS formats, including
most common word processing software programs.

feel free to forward this posting to any individual or list that
would be interested in it.
 
The University of Idaho Library announces the availability of the
second issue of the ELECTRONIC GREEN JOURNAL (ISSN: 1076-
7975).
 
The ELECTRONIC GREEN JOURNAL is a professional refereed
publication devoted to disseminating information concerning
sources on international environmental topics including:
assessment, conservation, development, disposal, education,
hazards, pollution, resources, technology, and treatment.
Environmental issues  frequently cross national borders; therefore,
our journal encourages the international sharing of environmental
expertise. The journal serves  communities as an educational
environmental resource, and includes both  practical and scholarly
articles, bibliographies, reviews, editorial  comments, and
announcements.  We are academically sponsored; however, our
focus is for the educated generalist as well as the specialist.
 
Advertisements are accepted at a rate of $150/screen (24 lines x 70
characters/line) or portion thereof for commercial organizations and
$75/screen for non-profit organizations.  Text or images can be
accommodated.

Subject: New issue of Electronic Green Journal available
 
Please forgive the duplication caused by cross-posting of the
following to several library and environmental listservs.  Please
feel free to forward this posting to any individual or list that
would be interested in it.
 
The University of Idaho Library announces the availability of the
second issue of the ELECTRONIC GREEN JOURNAL (ISSN: 1076-
7975).
 
The ELECTRONIC GREEN JOURNAL is a professional refereed
publication devoted to disseminating information concerning
sources on international environmental topics including:
assessment, conservation, development, disposal, education,
hazards, pollution, resources, technology, and treatment.
Environmental issues  frequently cross national borders; therefore,
our journal encourages the international sharing of environmental
expertise. The journal serves  communities as an educational
environmental resource, and includes both  practical and scholarly
articles, bibliographies, reviews, editorial  comments, and
announcements.  We are academically sponsored; however, our
focus is for the educated generalist as well as the specialist.
 
Advertisements are accepted at a rate of $150/screen (24 lines x 70
characters/line) or portion thereof for commercial organizations and
$75/screen for non-profit organizations.  Text or images can be
accommodated.
 
The journal is available via gopher, worldwide web, ftp
or by subscription.

Dear fellow Listowners:
 
I maintain a web site devoted to DTP in general and would like
to include a reference to your VPIEJ-L mailing list. Do you have
a simple one/two sentence description for the list? Also, do
you have any corresponding archive/FTP/web/gopher site associated
with the list?
 
If you would like to check out the web site that will have the
information, try the following URL:
