Serials: Information Technology and Libraries (ITAL) Goes Open Access
From the LITA Blog
LITA is pleased to announce that Information Technology and Libraries (ITAL) will become an open-access, electronic-only publication, beginning with the March 2012 issue (volume 31, issue 1). This change will help ensure the long-term viability of the journal by making it more accessible, more current, more relevant, and more environmentally friendly. ITAL will continue to feature high-quality articles that have undergone a rigorous peer-review process, but it will also begin expanding content to include more case studies, commentary, and information about topics and trends of interest to the LITA community and beyond. In addition to making new content openly available beginning in March, the complete electronic archive of ITAL and its predecessor, Journal of Library Automation (JOLA), will be made available online.
