In Brief: In the Library with the Lead Pipe announces two new milestones and a call for feedback.

As In the Library with the Lead Pipe continues to grow, we sometimes take a pause from our regular articles to share milestones and solicit reader input. We’d like to share two milestones: In the Library with the Lead Pipe is now indexed in DOAJ and we are listed as peer reviewed in EBSCO.

Also, as part of our ongoing efforts towards transparency and practicing what we preach in terms of Open Access, we are sharing the following draft documents for comments:

We hope these new documents help make our process more clear. These will replace the documents currently linked to from our submissions guidelines page.

The new documents are Google Documents with the permission setting “Anyone who has the link can comment.” We will keep comments open for the next month (deadline: 4/12/14). We will then review our documents, based on the comments we receive, and will implement our new process.

We look forward to your feedback.

Did our process documents spark your interest? Consider submitting! Need ideas? See our most recent Call for Articles.
