CALL FOR PAPERS: Special issue on Philosophy of Information
Special issue in the journal "Library Trends"
GUEST EDITOR Ken Herold would like to invite you to submit a manuscript proposal by October 31, 2012, under the extended timetable below. CALL A reprise volume of the Winter 2004 issue of Library Trends (Volume 52, No. 3, 373-670) is called for Summer 2014, for papers in the philosophy of information as a continuing study of philosophical themes in information studies. For a scholarly review of philosophy and information studies generally through recent years, consult Furner?s chapter 4 in Annual Review of Information Science and Technology, Vol. 44, 2010, pp. 161-200, edited by Cronin. The seminal works of Luciano Floridi and Brian Cantwell Smith may serve as points of departure, as well may the contributions from the 2004 volume itself. The call specifies original scholarship and central to all proposals must be the philosophical inquiry of core principles of librarianship and information studies, as broadly as that domain may be interpreted. Authors should strive to meet a 20-30 page limit (5,000-10,000 words). PROPOSALS Submit proposals of no more than 300 words. Decisions will be communicated to contributors by November 30, 2012.
