On behalf of Sara Amato/the C4LJ editorial board:

The Code4Lib Journal (C4LJ) exists to foster community and share
information among those interested in the intersection of libraries,
technology, and the future.

We are now accepting proposals for publication in our 37th issue.  Don’t
miss out on this opportunity to share your ideas and experiences. To be
included in the 37th issue, which is scheduled for publication in mid July
2017, please submit articles, abstracts, or proposals at
http://journal.code4lib.org/submit-proposal or to journal at code4lib.org by
Friday,  April 14, 2017. When submitting, please include the title or
subject of the proposal in the subject line of the email message and the
acceptance of the Journal’s US CC-By 3.0 license
<https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/us/> in the body of the
message. The editorial committee will review all proposals and notify those
accepted by Friday, April 21, 2017.  Please note that submissions are
subject to rejection or postponement at any point in the publication
process as determined by the Code4Lib Journal’s editorial committee.

C4LJ encourages creativity and flexibility, and the editors welcome
submissions across a broad variety of topics that support the mission of
the journal. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

* Practical applications of library technology (both actual and
* Technology projects (failed, successful, or proposed), including how they
were done and challenges faced
* Case studies
* Best practices
* Reviews
* Comparisons of third party software or libraries
* Analyses of library metadata for use with technology
* Project management and communication within the library environment
* Assessment and user studies

C4LJ strives to promote professional communication by minimizing the
barriers to publication. While articles should be of a high quality, they
need not follow any formal structure. Writers should aim for the middle
ground between blog posts and articles in traditional refereed journals.
Where appropriate, we encourage authors to submit code samples, algorithms,
and pseudo-code. For more information, visit C4LJ’s Article Guidelines or
browse articles from the earlier issues published on our website:

Send in a submission. Your peers would like to hear what you are doing.
