Announces the 2014 annual award for

Best Libri Student Paper

Since 1950, through 63 volumes, Libri: International Journal of Libraries and Information Services has been a leader among scholarly journals in the international library world. As part of its strategy to remain one of the premier library journals, Libri is issuing a call for "Best Student Paper of 2014." This competition supports Libri's goal of publishing the best articles from the next generation of library and information science professionals. We are proud once again to recognize the very best article with this special award.

Students at all levels* are invited to submit articles with clarity and authority. There is no stated theme. Research papers should address one of the significant issues facing today's librarians and information professionals. Case studies, best practices, and pure research papers are all welcome.

Length: approx. 5000 words
Language: English
Deadline: June 30, 2014

The best paper will be selected by an independent panel consisting of selected members of the Editorial Board, the Advisory Board and other international experts. Submissions will be judged on the basis of

- originality of thought and observation

- depth of research and scholarship

- topicality of problems addressed

- the international readership of the journal

The article will be published in the 2014:4 issue. The author of the winning article will be honoured with an award of EUR500 and with a complementary subscription to Libri for 2015. If the quality of competition warrants, some papers may be designated as honourable mention and the authors will receive complementary subscriptions to Libri for 2015. The normal provision to the author of e-prints applies to all winners.
