Evidence Based Library and Information Practice: Call for Applications

Associate Editor
Evidence Based Library and Information Practice (EBLIP) is looking to add a new Associate Editor, responsible for two sections of the journal: Classics, as well as the new section Using Evidence in Practice. The Associate Editor will be a member of the Editorial Team, responsible for the overall direction of the journal. Specific responsibilities include:

- seeing articles in the Classics and Using Evidence in Practice sections through the complete editorial process
- communicating with authors, peer reviewers and copyeditors
- ensuring there is sufficient content for publication in each issue
- promoting the journal and contributing to its overall success

Interested persons should send their resume to Denise Koufogiannakis, Editor-in-Chief denise.koufogiannakis@ualberta.ca by January 30, 2009.

Evidence Summaries Writers
EBLIP also seeks to add five writers to the Evidence Summaries Team. Evidence Summaries provide critical appraisal syntheses for specific research articles. These research synopses provide readers with information regarding the original research article’s validity and reliability, thus providing information on the presence or absence of evidence with which to make informed decisions. Evidence Summaries Team members are required to write two evidence summaries per year, with a two year commitment to the journal. Evidence Summaries cover all areas of library and information studies and we encourage applications from information professionals in areas such as school, public, and special libraries, as well as academic settings.

Interested persons should send their resume to Lorie Kloda (Associate Editor, Evidence Summaries) lorie.kloda@mcgill.ca by January 30, 2009.

**Please note that Evidence Based Library and Information Practice is a non-profit, open access journal and all positions are voluntary and unpaid. The positions are an excellent opportunity for continuing professional development and gaining experience in reviewing or critically appraising library related research.

About the journal:
Published quarterly by the University of Alberta, this peer-reviewed, open access journal is targeted at all library and information professionals interested in an evidence based model of practice. By facilitating access to librarianship research via original research articles and evidence summaries of relevant research from the library literature, Evidence Based Library and Information Practice will enable librarians to practice their profession in an evidence based manner.
