Editorial Scope, Philosophy, and Policies

Editorial Scope           
portal: Libraries and the Academy is an international journal which publishes qualitative or quantitative research about the role of libraries and librarianship within the academy.           
Both basic and applied research papers, including case studies, are welcome, as are essays that explore the more theoretical or philosophical underpinnings of the library profession. The journal welcomes the submission of inquiries and proposals for topics that authors have under development and will provide guidance on the suitability for publication in portal.

General Policies:

portal publishes only original, previously unpublished content.

Authors should consult the journal editor if part, or all, of their submitted manuscript has been published previously. portal acknowledges that, during research and manuscript preparation, authors may benefit from discussing or presenting some of their findings at conferences or meetings, or from posting such content on email lists or academic social networks. Authors must notify the editor and provide details of such dissemination when submitting their article.

Authors must also notify the editor if their manuscript uses data from another published study, making the case for their study’s added value, originality, or both.     

Authors should not submit the same manuscript for review to more than one journal at a time.      

The editors and Editorial Board of portal have endorsed the principles and practices in the documents “A Statement of Ethics for Editors of Library and Information Science Journals” and “A Guide to Best Practices for Editors of Library and Information Science Journals,” both issued in 2009 and revised in 2010, and posted at www.lis-editors.org/ethics/index.html and www.lis-editors.org/best-practices/. We encourage authors, reviewers, and other editors and publishers to follow these standards for integrity and responsibility.

Through its editorial practices, portal supports the development and evolution of inclusive language, including the use of the singular they. The journal encourages authors to refer to themselves by their chosen pronouns and to honor that practice for individuals referenced in their articles.

A Note about Learning Analytics Research          
portal feels that while library learning analytics research holds potential, it is also rife with ethical issues. Learning analytics is defined as “the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of data about learners and their contexts, for purposes of understanding and optimizing learning and the environments in which it occurs” (see SOLAR). Academic libraries are engaging in learning analytics research, and our editorial outlines our views. Authors should address relevant ethical issues if their work is a learning analytics study. Reviewers of learning analytics research will be instructed to look specifically for ethics discussions within a piece’s literature review and research design sections and also can address learning analytics ethics in additional sections. We encourage prospective authors with questions about learning analytics research to contact the editor, Ellysa Stern Cahoy, ellysa@psu.edu. 

Use of AI tools in author submissions          
The Editorial Board is currently monitoring the scholarly guidance surrounding the use of AI-generated content (from AI tools such as ChatGPT) in submitted manuscripts.  We encourage prospective authors with questions about utilizing AI-generated content in submissions to contact the editor, Ellysa Stern Cahoy, ellysa@psu.edu. 

While we are actively exploring the implications of the use of AI-generated content in submitted manuscripts, please note that submissions exploring AI technologies within the context of academic libraries and higher education are always welcome.

Article Types       

All new article submissions should be submitted to portal electronically via ScholarOne Manuscripts: mc.manuscriptcentral.com/pla_journal       

Research Articles          
Both basic and applied research papers, including case studies, are welcome, as are essays that explore the more theoretical or philosophical underpinnings of the library profession.            
Topics may include but are not limited to library administration and leadership; library approaches to diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and belonging; methods or innovations in research and teaching; archival practice; data management; open access, or organizational theory.

Feature Articles          
Feature articles are edited but not peer reviewed. Send proposals or questions about features and related communications to the appropriate feature editor, with copies to Ellysa Stern Cahoy, ellysa@psu.edu, and to Anne C. Behler, portalmanagingeditor@gmail.com,

The following features appear regularly in portal:

  • Reports from the Field, Editor Mark N. Lenker, University of Nevada, Las Vegas  mark.lenker@unlv.edu, showcases individual and local experiences and lessons learned, institution-specific initiatives, or research that is more limited in scope.
  • Global Perspectives, Editor Michelle Guittar, Northwestern Universitymichelle.guittar@northwestern.edu, highlights research, trends, and new perspectives in academic librarianship in a global context. It spotlights submissions that explore partnerships and initiatives with an international emphasis.
  • Worth Noting, Editor Marianne Stowell Bracke, Wayne State University, marianne.bracke@wayne.edu, covers noteworthy trends in academic libraries or in higher education more broadly. Worth Noting has presented pilot programs, interviews, and success stories. Occasionally, it features reviews of books and technology solutions.

The Manuscript Review Process          
Submissions to portal go through a double-anonymized review process: the reviewers of the paper do not know who the authors are, nor do the authors know the identity of the reviewers. The managing editor redacts any information or embedded metadata from the manuscript that could identify the authors and sends it to two referees, members of the portal Editorial Board.

The portal reviewers rate the submission using a standard assessment rubric. It asks them to evaluate the manuscript in several areas, including appropriateness to the journal’s readership, originality, literature review, research methodology, and clarity of writing. Some referees also provide authors with a marked-up manuscript with additional comments and suggestions. The assessment framework asks referees to indicate when a submission has merit but needs additional work before publication.

The portal referee assessment rubric is available here.

If the referees determine that an author should revise and resubmit a manuscript, the editor will forward that recommendation to the author. Once the author has incorporated the suggestions of the referees, the revised manuscript will go back for review, usually to the original referees but occasionally to other members of the Editorial Board. Over time, we have seen this process produce outstanding results.          
When the manuscript is accepted, with or without revisions, the editor will notify the author as soon as possible, suggesting a deadline for resubmission of the next iteration. Upon final acceptance, the editor will provide an estimated publication date and, if possible, indicate the journal volume and issue number. If, at the end of the peer-review process, the editor decides not to publish, she will inform the author with an explanation for that decision.  

Manuscript Preparation          
All new article submissions should be submitted to portal electronically via ScholarOne Manuscripts: mc.manuscriptcentral.com/pla_journal        

Editorial Style/Conventions

  • Target a manuscript length of approximately 25 to 35 pages double-spaced. (This may be shorter for feature articles)
  • Provide an abstract of approximately 100 words highlighting the scope, methodology, and conclusions of your paper.
  • Include a concise, clear title, literature review, discussion, and conclusion in your article. The article may also include acknowledgements, which will appear at the end of the manuscript.
  • For citations, follow the 17th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style, using endnotes and without a bibliography. Place note numbers at the end of a sentence. Avoid using more than one note number in a single location. To cite more than one source for a passage,group the citations into a single endnote, separated by semicolons, and put them in the same order as the corresponding material appears in the text.
  • Present headings and subheadings consistently with different levels of headings clearly differentiated. Avoid using more than three levels of subheadings.
  • portal prefers that authors use the active voice (as opposed to the passive voice) as much as possible.
  • Avoid use of the first person. Refer to yourselves as “the authors,” “the researchers,” or “the investigators” instead of “we.” 
  • Use standard United States spelling. Consult the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary (www.merriam-webster.com) for questions related to spelling and word division.   
  • Spell out acronyms and abbreviations the first time you use them in the text.
  • Include the full name of any author cited in the text when first mentioned, rather than using only the last name.
  • Authors are responsible for reviewing any editorial changes, including copyediting, to ensure that errors have not been introduced inadvertently.

How To Submit Your Manuscript

  • All manuscripts should be submitted through ScholarOne Manuscripts: mc.manuscriptcentral.com/pla_journal 
  • If your paper has multiple authors, designate one person as the corresponding author. This individual should upload the manuscript to ScholarOne.
  • Provide two copies of your manuscript – one with all identifying information redacted (for review) and the other with your identifying information included (not for review.)
  • Write in Microsoft Word™ or a similar word-processing application. Once accepted, manuscripts must be prepared in Microsoft™ applications for submission to The John Hopkins University Press.
  • Avoid using any enhanced features of the word processing software, such as fixed headers or footers, the numbered list option, or automatic footnotes. Please do not number pages.
  • If using citation management software, disconnect your manuscript from the software (i.e., converting all formatted citations to plain text) prior to submission.

Tables, Figures, and Illustrations

  • Obtain copyright permission for any materials from other publications to be reproduced in your article and supply documentation to the journal editors.
  • Submit all tables, figures, and illustrations as individual files, separate from the article manuscript.
  • Create tables and similar material in Microsoft Word using the table function or inserting tabs to create space between columns. Do not use Excel, and do not submit tables as image files.
  • Submit all figures in a high-quality graphics format, such as a tiff (tagged image file format), gif (graphics interchange format), or jpg (Joint Photographic Experts Group) file, with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch).
  • Ensure that all figures are coherent in gray scale because portal does not print in color. In the case of bar charts and graphs, use a patterned fill to enable greater accessibility. It can be helpful to use a contrast checker, such as: www.whocanuse.com/
  • Number tables and figures in the order in which they are first referenced in the text, using Arabic numerals. For example, Figure 1, Figure 2, Table 1, Table 2, and so on.
  • Indicate in the text approximately where each table or figure should go and provide a title for each visual element using brackets [Figure 1.,Title of figure 1.] The visual elements of the article should be able to be read and understood independently of the text.

Appendices

  • Survey instruments, rubrics, long lists of participating institutions, and similar materials typically appear in one or more appendices after the main article.
  • These items should be supplied as individual word documents, separate from the manuscript and titled as follows: Appendix A (B, C, D…). Title of Appendix.
  • If the appendices or other supplementary materials cannot be printed because of space limitations, portal can supply links to such materials online. Authors will receive information about how to do so during the manuscript revision process.

Acknowledgments

  • In portal articles, the “Acknowledgments” section typically appears at the end of the main text, before the author information, appendices, and endnotes. This section is optional.
  • Authors may list those who made contributions to the work but are not coauthors in the acknowledgments, along with their function or contribution. Authors may also acknowledge sources of support, such as grants, in this section.

Manuscript Posting

The Johns Hopkins University Press allows authors to post manuscripts on their own personal or departmental institutional database or on-line site, in their institutional repositories, and, if required by law, to an open access archive. A copyright agreement between the press and the author is executed at the time the manuscript is sent to the press for publication. The agreement gives the press the right to publish the article, but the author retains permission to use and republish the material if he or she includes a copyright notice.       

Articles accepted for publication and copyedited for the upcoming issue of portal are posted on a preprint server hosted by the Journals Division of the Johns Hopkins University Press.          
Preprints are available here: preprint.press.jhu.edu/portal/ 

portal is available in the Project MUSE collection, muse.jhu.edu/journal/159, and as a paper publication.          
We hope that you will enjoy the authoring and publication experience.

peer review process-portal

portal: Libraries and the Academy focuses on qualitative or quantitative research about the role of libraries and librarianship within higher education. Both basic and applied research papers, including case studies, are welcome, as are essays that explore the more theoretical or philosophical underpinnings of librarianship. The desired length is about 25 to 35 pages double-spaced, but we will consider longer manuscripts.

Submissions to portal go through a double-blind review process: the reviewers of the paper do not know who the authors are, nor do the authors know the identity of the reviewers. The managing editor redacts any information or embedded metadata from the manuscript that could identify the authors and sends it to two referees, members of the portal Editorial Board. This review may take from six to nine weeks.

The portal reviewers rate the submission using a standard assessment rubric. It asks the referees to evaluate the manuscript in several areas, including appropriateness to the journal’s readership, originality, literature review, research methodology, and clarity of writing. Theassessment framework asks referees to indicate when a submission has merit but needs additional work before publication. If they determine that an author should revise and resubmit a manuscript, the editor will forward that recommendation to the author. Once the author has incorporated the suggestions of the referees, the revised manuscript will go back for review, usually to the original referees but occasionally to two other members of the Editorial Board. This process may take another six to nine weeks.

Authors should reveal when submitting a manuscript to portal if there has been any prior presentation or publication of the same material or something very similar. Prior presentation does not automatically disqualify a submission, but the editor needs to make a fully informed decision about the novelty of the work. Authors should not submit the same manuscript for review to more than one journal at a time.
