Virginia Libraries

Virginia Libraries features peer reviewed and non-peer reviewed content from all libraries (academic, corporate, public, school, special), with a focus on the Virginia library community.



New Publishing Model for Virginia Libraries Journal


As librarians we are intimately aware of the significant changes in the publishing industry, including scholarly and professional association journal publishing. Currency is increasingly important for publishing research results, and articles are increasingly discovered, accessed, and referenced directly, for their specific content and based on their own identifiers (such as DOIs – digital object identifiers). In response, some journals are moving to a model where they publish individual articles as they are ready for distribution, rather than within a grouping in an issue. 

With this in mind, and with a desire to make the Virginia Libraries journal content as accessible as possible, and our workflow as efficient as possible for our authors and our readers, we are making a change to our publication model.

New Publishing Model Details

Beginning with Volume 62, 2017, we will publish each accepted article individually, as it is ready for publication. . . . See the full announcement for more information.
