EBLIP Seeks New Production Editor

Evidence Based Library and Information Practice (EBLIP) is a peer reviewed, open access journal, which provides a forum for librarians and other information professionals to discover research that may contribute to decision making in professional practice. EBLIP is published quarterly by the University of Alberta Learning Services. EBLIP publishes original research and commentary on the topic of evidence based library and information practice, as well as reviews of previously published research (evidence summaries) on a wide number of topics.


EBLIP seeks a new Production Editor, for a three year term commencing December 2012.


As with all other EBLIP Editorial Positions, the Production Editor is a voluntary appointment.


The Production Editor role is one of the final steps of the journal production process. Responsibilities include laying out the PDF and HTML of all journal content and working with section editors to make the final publication look professional, attractive and in the house style.

Advanced experience with Microsoft Word, good knowledge of HTML, strong attention to detail and the ability to meet tight deadlines are essential. Knowledge of the OJS system would also be beneficial.

The role involves a time commitment of approximately 10 hours per month, with the bulk of the work occurring on a quarterly basis prior to journal publication. The production editor should also be available to attend monthly editorial meetings via Skype.


The new Editor should be in a position to commence working with the outgoing Production Editor by mid November to ensure an effective handover of responsibilities and training.
