SOLINET Annual Membership Meeting

Call for Submissions

SOLINET, Southeastern Library Network, and the SOLINET Annual Membership Meeting Planning Committee invite proposals for a panel or an individual presentation for the 2009 Annual Meeting to be held May 14-15 in Atlanta, Georgia.

The theme for the 2009 meeting is “The Changing World, Changing Libraries.” The world is changing and we know the library is changing with it. In order to fully discuss this topic, we are looking for sessions that represent new ideas for the library world – not what has already been happening, but ideas about what may be just around the corner. It may be patron service that is on the verge of changing drastically, changes in public and private partnerships or innovations in technical services. The world is changing. Let us know how that change may affect your library and how you are preparing to face that challenge.

Accepted submissions will be offered space in one of our concurrent sessions. Each concurrent session will run one hour.

Please follow these guidelines:

  1. All submissions must include a session title, short description appropriate for the conference program, and the names, institutions, job titles and email addresses of those who will be presenting the material at the conference. Session titles and descriptions will be final upon submission.
  2. Note your intended audience, both library type and position(s) within the library.
  3. Include A/V requirements for your session if it is accepted for the conference.

Journal of Organizational and End User Computing

CALL FOR PAPERS AND SPECIAL ISSUE PROPOSALS Journal of Organizational and End User Computing


JOEUC Special Issue Proposals


JOEUC invites proposals from well-published scholars for a special issue on End User Computing Security and Risks.  The proposal should be about 3-4 pages long


JOEUC also invites manuscripts in all areas covered by the journal. The journal publishes empirical and theoretical research concerned with all aspects of organizational and end user computing. 




The primary purpose of the Journal of Organizational and End User Computing (JOEUC) is to provide a forum to information technology educators, researchers, and practitioners to advance the practice and understanding of organizational and end user computing.  Prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts for possible publication in JOEUC.  The journal publishes empirical and theoretical research concerned with all aspects of organizational and end user computing.  The journal is especially interested in those research studies that show a significant contribution to the area by relating organizational and end user computing to organizational and end user performance and productivity, strategic and competitive advantage, and electronic commerce.  It publishes full-length research manuscripts, insightful research and practice notes, and case studies from all areas of organizational and end user computing.


JOEUC Coverage:

Topics should be drawn from, but not limited to, the following areas, with major emphasis on how to increase organizational and end user productivity and performance, and how to achieve organizational strategic and competitive advantage:


Organizational and end user computing (OEUC) productivity and performance; OEUC and how it affects organizational strategic and competitive advantage; OEUC and how it relates to information resources management;  using and managing emerging OEUC technologies including electronic commerce; OEUC satisfaction; OEUC in various management functions; OEUC usage; OEUC privacy, security, and copyright issues; OEUC success factors; OEUC controls for security and privacy; OEUC risk factors; OEUC management; OEUC hardware and software; OEUC supports and training.


In general, the journal seeks contributions concerning any aspect of organizational and end user information processing including development, usage, satisfaction, performance, productivity, success, failure, policies, strategies, and management.  The journal invites contributions from educators, researchers, and practitioners involved in research, management, and utilization of organizational and end user computing.


JOEUC Submissions: 

All manuscripts submitted to JOEUC will undergo a two-way blind review.  Authors are asked to submit electronically as an email attachment or mail four copies of their original, previously unpublished manuscript that satisfies the following conditions:


�       Must not be currently under review by another journal.

�       Must be written in APA (American Psychological Association) editorial style.

�       Should not exceed 25 double-spaced typed pages.

�       Must be accompanied by a cover page with author(s)’ name, address, telephone number, and affiliation.

�       Should be accompanied by a 150-200 word vita of author(s) on a separate sheet.

�       Must be accompanied by a 150-200 word abstract on a separate sheet with appropriate key words for the papers.


JOEUC also invites significant and insightful research and practice notes, case studies, editorials, and book reviews from all areas of organizational and end user computing.  Submitted pieces for this section should not exceed 15 double-spaced pages.


JOEUC Review process:

To ensure high quality of the published materials, JOEUC utilizes a group of experts to review submitted manuscripts.  Upon receipt of a manuscript, two reviewers are selected from the Editorial Review Board of the journal to review the manuscript.  The selection is based on the area of expertise of the reviewers, matched to the subject matter of the submission.  An additional ad-hoc reviewer (usually an author who has previously published in JOEUC and who has expertise in the area) is also selected to review the manuscript.  Each submission is, therefore, blind reviewed by at least three reviewers.  If at least two reviewers make favorable recommendations on a manuscript, the author(s) are given an opportunity to revise the manuscript. The revised manuscript is blind reviewed by an associate editor (AE) and finally reviewed by the editor. Return of a manuscript to the author(s) for revision(s) does not guarantee an acceptance of the manuscript for publication but it is a step in the right direction.  The final decision on a manuscript is made based on comments of the reviewers and AE, and the quality of the revised manuscript.
