Urban Library Journal to be open access
I was pleased to learn yesterday that Urban Library Journal is going open access. Work is underway to put the content of the most recent issue online and to explore whether digitization of back issues is feasible. The editors have submitted a request to be added to the Directory of Open Access Journals and applied for an ISSN for electronic serials.
In an earlier post, I explored how many open access journals are indexed in Wilson's Library Literature. Urban Library Journal is already indexed there; once it goes open access, we'll be able to add one more journal to the list of OA journals in Library Literature.
If you're interested in submitting an article, please do! Urban Library Journal occupies an interesting niche in the world of library publications and welcomes new material.
