POST: JLA Lights the Way

On Saturday, the news broke that the entire editorial board of the Journal of Library Administration (JLA) had resigned in protest of the journal’s restrictive author agreement. In a post on ACRLog, Scott Walter (Editor of College and Research Libraries) puts this move in context with the open access movement and asks, “Why do so many of us still serve as the editorial leadership for journals whose policies do not reflect our ideals?”

Scott’s post comes at the heels of earlier posts from members of the JLA editorial board, Brian Mathews, Jason Griffey, and Chris Bourg.

This post was produced through a cooperation between Heidi Madden and Kristen Totleben (Editors-at-Large for the week), Roxanne Shirazi (Editor for the week), and Zach Coble and Sarah Potvin (site editors).
