Information Outlook, Requirements for publishing in

All previous requirements for submitting articles to Information Outlook have been waived, judging by the most recent issue. Feel free to just type random letters onto a page, write some amateur Penthouse Letters, write about your favorite cat, compose a poem about bowel movements...whatever. If it helps you get tenure, Information Outlook is the easiest way to publish because you don't even have to have a point-of-view or make arguments for or against anything. It's pretty awesome.

One puts forth the same intensity of work needed to produce an article for your lyberry's newsletter (or slightly less), sends it to IO, and gets credit for a "scholarly article"...?

Now that IS news we (and the other "junior" faculty members of our lyberry's staff) can use. Thanks for the tip.

hey--at least they PAY you for the stuff! I do know firsthand, however, that they machine edit the stuff--as in run the submission through a paper shredder, then reassemble at random and publish.

Your blog is the best! So I want to start a librarian thinktank (i know it's an oxymoron, but just bare with me) so, I read all these blogs and you all are on the same page, more or less, on how inane the library world is. so here is the question-How do we keep this craptastic profession from going down the crapper? Is is possible? or do we just invest in penny stocks? Penny for your thoughts...http://uprightwalkingmonkeys.blogspot.com/
