Case Studies in Library Publishing – new journal!

It is always wonderful to announce a new publication from the LibraryPress@UF, and this one is also on library publishing!

Message below from editor Perry Collins:

I’m very pleased to announce the launch of a new journal, Case Studies in Library Publishing (CSLP), as well as a Call for Abstracts (deadline Dec. 9) for the first issue.

Edited by Chelsea Johnston and Perry Collins, alongside editorial board members jaime ding and Christine Turner, CSLP will provide concrete project examples to inspire and support those involved with library publishing as we ground and grow our work. Through a case study approach, the journal will offer a dedicated space for knowledge exchange, to delve into the workflows, responsibilities, ethics, and outcomes of particular projects. Submissions may focus on incomplete or ongoing projects, as well as older or more recent work; where possible, we encourage authors to share what has not worked or lessons learned.

We plan to publish on an annual basis, with the first, peer-reviewed issue slated for publication in early fall 2023.

To submit an abstract, share feedback, or ask questions, please email us at
