Journal of eScience Librarianship (JESLIB)
is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that advances the theory and practice of librarianship with a special focus on services related to data-driven research in the physical, biological, and medical sciences. The journal explores the many roles of librarians in supporting eScience and welcomes articles related to education, outreach, collaborations, and current practices, by contributors from all areas of the globe. Articles covering both the theoretical and practical applications are welcomed. JESLIB also provides special features in each issue which include book reviews on subjects of interest to librarians supporting eScience and information on new technologies.
This project has been partially funded by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. N01-LM-6-3508 with the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Our own Health Sciences Librarian Raquel Abad is Managing Editor.
seeks to share useful innovations, both in thought and in practice, with the aim of encouraging scholarly exchange and the subsequent benefits that are borne of scrutiny, experimentation and debate. As modes of scholarly communication, the technologies and economics of publishing and the roles of libraries evolve, it is our hope that the work shared in the journal will inform practices that strengthen librarianship and that increase access to the “common Stock of Knowledge.”
