STATEMENT ON THE AUTHORS' RIGHTS. The authors of contributions will

be the only holders of their full moral authors' rights and

copyrights of their work and no one at LIS Critique will usurp their

moral authors' rights or copyrights (neither the journal, nor the

editorial board or any other member of the journal). If the authors

wish to publish their works in other journals they can do it;

authors are the authors and they could do with their work whatever

they freely wish to do.

In the next sections we present the guidelines of contributions for

LIS Critique and the requirements for authors.

GUIDELINESS OF CONTRIBUTIONS FOR AUTHORS

Overall aim of the journal

Library and Information Science Critique: Journal of the Information

Sciences Recorded in Documents is projected as the most important

public space and with worldwide impact in OPEN ACCESS format totally

free of charge without any costs for any of the stakeholders

involved for the fostering of the social critique; critical debate;

and critical thinking about the most candent issues caused by public

policies emerged from capitalism and neo-liberalism which deprive

humankind on a global scale from a free, free of charge, democratic,

and egalitarian production, organization, dissemination, and use of

information recorded in documents, not only at the core of Library

and Information Science (LIS) or Librarianship, but also in other

sciences of information recorded in documents such as Archival

Science, Information Science, and others and through their

corresponding institutions of information recorded in documents

throughout the world.

 

Particular aims

1. What distinguishes LIS Critique from all other existing journals

is the CRITIQUE concept which is not only part of the title of the

journal, but CRITIQUE IS THE JOURNAL'S MAIN ELEMENT. All

contributions should be focused from a social critique perspective

rigorously founded, either with empirical research data or from the

literature to underpin the issues addressed. For non critical

contributions authors already have most of the other journals in the

world (epistemologically speaking and with no offence or disrespect

to anybody), but LIS Critique is a critical journal and critique, or

being critical from the onset is its distinctive seal.

2. Contributions to LIS Critique must analyse, synthesise, and

propose (in a critical fashion) sound alternatives to the barriers

which currently deprive humankind from a free, free of charge,

democratic and egalitarian production, organization, dissemination

and use of information recorded in documents, either in library and

information science, or archival science, or information science, or

in other sciences of information recorded in documents, theoretically

speaking, or through their corresponding institutions of information

recorded in documents where authors work, in the case of practical

cases.

3. Although the lines of research or ideas for contributions of all

authors are part of their own free and unhampered choice, some

examples of lines of research and/or approaches are suggested for

authors that they may try to explore (of course, critically) when

they submit contributions to the journal):

· Critique to the self-called ideologies of the "information

society" and "knowledge society" · Critique to the

established, and monopolistic research methodologies and methods in

information recorded in documents. · Critique to

pseudoscience and charlatanism in LIS and information recorded in

documents with critical and skeptical thinking. · Critique

to the irrational systems of theft of the general intellect such as

copyright, patents, and others that impose unreal barriers to

production, organization, access of information recorded in

documents. · Critique to the neo-liberal systems of

education in LIS, and information recorded in documents where the

intrusiveness of powerful neo-liberal elites monopolize the

direction of the curricula towards their own particular views and

distort the analytical and critical cognitive development of

students; sometimes they also affect LIS students and education

through the abuse of their bureaucratic power they keep under

custody illegally.

Critique to the social injustices at the heart of labour

issues on the sciences of information recorded in documents:

LIS, librarianship, documentation, archival science, etc.: e.g.

sexism, racism, discrimination, homophobia, nepotism, abuse of

power, sexual harassment, opression, etc.

· Critique to the salary tabulations or critique to their

none existence, in which librarians, archivists, information

scientists and all other professionals of information recorded in

documents, are dealt in inhuman and unworthy ways. ·

Critique to the access barriers to information recorded in documents

and their correlations with politics and society. · Critique

to the hegemonic and privative systems of science bibliometrics such

as the monopolies of ISI of Thomson Corporation (Citation Indexes),

Elsevier Science (Scopus databases), etc. · Critique to

traditional epistemology of the sciences of information recorded in

documents and proposing alternative critical epistemologies. ·

Critique to evaluation processes for the effective performance of

the institutions of information recorded in documents. ·

Critique to the neo-slavery of the traditional and pay-per

production/access/use publishing with alternatives from the Open

Access revolution of information recorded in documents. ·

Critique to privative information and communication technologies,

i.e. software and proposals of free software for the development of

the processes of organization and services of information recorded

in documents without having the downsize to pay onerous prices to

privative software monopolies. · Critique to the public

policies of information that affect negatively particularly public

libraries. · Critique to the neo-liberal commodification of

information recorded in documents. · Critique to any other

issues that arise through the scientific development of LIS and

other sciences of information recorded in documents.

These are only suggestions, but it does not mean that authors must

contribute following these themes or issues suggested here, they are

free to choose the issues of their free choice, but what it is

requested is that they do it through a systematic critique or with a

social critique approach of the subjects or topics they address.

4. In principle LIS Critique will accept most of the submissions

authors contribute since one of its main ideas is to challenge the

mainstream (and even Open Access) onerous and monopolistic journals

by trying to cover the wider demand of authors that have been

rejected from traditional journals and even from Open Access ones,

but priority will be given to those authors that approach their

contributions in a critical manner; with a social critique focus; to

develop the critical and skeptical thinking in the journal is an

essential part.

 

Cognitive typology of the journal

The journal comprises three cognitive categories in which authors'

contributions will be classified:

 

1. Scientific peer reviewed articles.

2. Non scientific essays, but peer reviewed (or semi-peer reviewed)

3. Term and research papers from undergraduate or masters' students,

non scientific but peer reviewed (or semi peer reviewed or non peer

reviewed at all)

Sections of the journal

1. Scientific peer reviewed articles.

2. Non scientific essays, but peer reviewed (or semi-peer reviewed)

3. Term and research papers from undergraduate or masters' students,

non scientific but peer reviewed (or semi peer reviewed or non peer

reviewed at all)

4. Book reviews

5. Literary space (poems, stories, etc. related to the thematic of

the journal).

Frequency

Initially LIS Critique will be published quarterly (4 issues

published one by one on each of the following months: January, April,

July, October during the year). Each year will comprise a volume and

so on and so forth.

Citation style

APA, American Psychological Association will be used. See examples

here:

http://especializacion.una.edu.ve/paginas/normasapauniversidad.pdf

http://www.uninorte.edu.co/observatorio/documentos/Apa_Edicion5.pdf

Infrastructure

The journal will be edited in PDF and published in a dedicated Web

site in Google Pages,

http://critica.bibliotecologica.googlepages.com/ , (but the

editorial board is working on infrastructure alternatives, be some

website in a free software server, or in some institution where a

member works, but what it's being sought from the onset is

independence from any institution to avoid that any institution

tries to usurp the authors' and journals' rights; and to assure

mobility of the journal beyond any institutional restrictions.

However, in order to guarantee to the worldwide public a true and

permanent Open Access to the journal content, once each issue is

published will be archived straight away to E-LIS, while the

editorial board will figure it out how to obtain better Open Access

and free of charge journal management systems based on free

software. Hence, the idea of using Google Pages as website is merely

for an informative place and to link all the issues uploaded in

E-LIS, so the infrastructure matters are not much of a consequence.

 

You may check the advancements of the journal here at the journal’s

website: http://critica.bibliotecologica.googlepages.com

Centre of Research in Information Recorded in Documents (CINFODOC,

at UANL, Mexico)

http://cinfodoc.uanl.ffyl.googlepages.com

Languages of the journal:

Spanish (original), and English. Spanish is the original language

because the authors of the project, Muela-Meza and Torres-Reyes,

crafted it from the onset having the Latin American (Spanish

speakers) public in mind. But English is also included to go beyond

Latin American boundaries and have a truly global scale focus and

impact.

When will the first issue be published?

It is planned to be published shortly, so if you already have some

papers to submit, there is a good chance to begin submitting now. It

is also planned to take pre or post prints from E-LIS and other Open

Access repositories as long as they meet with the guidelines

explained above and as long as authors authorize their publication.

Thank you very much for your attention and we hope that you would

submit your contributions to the our journal, first, most important

and worldwide critical journal in library and information science and

other sciences of information recorded in documents in totally full ,

free, free of charge, democratic, and egalitarian Open Access for

all: authors' and the public reader.
