New Year, New Cycles, New Platform

Update from the In the Library with the Lead Pipe Editorial Board

In 2022, we will be refreshing, upgrading, and relaunching on a new platform and with new cycles for article submission and publication. To get ready for these big changes, we will pause submissions on January 15, 2022 at 11:59pm Hawaii Standard Time. (That means January 16, 2022 at 1:59am Pacific, 4:59am Eastern, and 9:59am Greenwich Mean Time.)

Accepted articles submitted by this deadline will continue to be published on a rolling basis while we move to the new platform.

Beginning in late spring 2022, we will again accept new submissions. Instead of accepting rolling submissions, we’ll move to a more structured cycle of three submission windows a year.

In the Library with the Lead Pipe‘s Editorial Board has a longstanding practice of transparently documenting our journal’s procedures and any changes. We’re making these upcoming changes in order to streamline our editorial processes, making them more sustainable for both editors and authors. We’re very excited that the new platform will provide additional features.

Watch this space for updates and news about our relaunch and publication timelines!
