Call For Papers
The Electronic Library (TEL) publishes digital information research. It is particularly interested in information organization for knowledge creation, discovery, access, and sharing. Information behaviour research in this context, is also welcomed.  All types of digital objects are included, for example data, records, documents, and files. The journal welcomes submissions on:

    Personal digital archiving
    Digital ‘life’
    The cultural record
    Scholarly communication
    Social media interaction and analysis
    Health communication
    Geographical information
    Big data
    Security and governance
    Language and lexicons
    Classification and coding.

The editors are likely to reject submissions that are not related to data or information organization, such as bibliometric studies and pure user behavioural studies applying survey methods. Exceptions are made for the types of studies that develop innovative approaches to organize collected data for the purposes of expediting data analysis or research finding assessment.  In general, survey studies exploring the use of information resources in a particular library, a university or a nation will not be accepted unless the study provides generalizable new knowledge for information resource organization for a particular community or population.

We expect that a submission will address one or more well thought-out problems or challenges in information organization and be designed with a rigorous research methodology. The study should have more than local interest and bring new knowledge to TEL readers. It is highly recommended that authors complete all the fields in the structured abstract, including the research limitations/implications, practical implications and social implications, to facilitate editors and reviewers’ understanding of the significance of the submission. Studies that do not have a good research design and bring no new knowledge will be considered insignificant.
