I am very excited to share an announcement which was recently made to a listserv I subscribe to about the creation of a new open-access peer-reviewed journal, the Journal of Copyright in Education and Librarianship. As noted in the Editorial Introduction to the first issue, we previously lacked a “focused forum dedicated to exploring the strategies, partnerships, and impact of copyright law on libraries, research institutions, and their educational initiatives.” I’m delighted that JCEL is stepping into this void! Here’s the full announcement:
We are pleased to introduce the Journal of Copyright in Education and Librarianship (https://www.jcel-pub.org/). The journal, founded by Carla Myers (University of Colorado, Colorado Springs), Tucker Taylor (University of South Carolina), and Andrew Wesolek (Clemson University), is a peer-reviewed open-access publication for original articles, reviews and case studies that analyze or describe the strategies, partnerships and impact of copyright law on public, school, academic, and digital libraries, archives, museums, and research institutions and their educational initiatives. The Journal’s founding Editorial Board includes some of the nation’s foremost experts in copyright and higher education, including: Kyle Courtney (Harvard University), Kenneth D. Crews (Gipson Hoffman & Pancione), Donna Ferullo (Purdue University), Christine Fruin (University of Florida), Isaac Gilman (Pacific University), Dick Kawooya (University of South Carolina), Tomas Lipinski (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee), Lisa Macklin (Emory University), Sarah McCleskey (Hofstra University), and Kevin Smith (University of Kansas).
The first issue features papers based on presentations delivered at the 2016 Kraemer Copyright Conference, held this past Spring at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs as well as an essay from Editorial Board member Kenneth D. Crews about the considerations the Board made in drafting the author agreement.
The Journal will be published bi-annually in the fall and spring and welcomes submissions for future issues, including original research and practitioner experience papers, legal analysis, as well as submissions in alternative formats. The Journal appreciates the sponsorship of University of Colorado, Colorado Springs and the support of the University of Kansas, Clemson University, and the University of South Carolina.
We hope you enjoy this publication as much as we enjoyed editing it.
