Call for Papers: IFLA Journal special issue on Research Data Services

*Submission Deadline*: *16 May 2016*

Libraries and archives around the world are applying the principles of
library and archival sciences to address challenges and provide new
services related to research data management. Librarians are helping
researchers address needs throughout the research data lifecycle, for
example, by conducting assessment and outreach, consulting on data
management plans and metadata, incorporating data into information literacy
instruction and collection management, and providing data publication and
preservation services.

IFLA Journal <http://www.ifla.org/publications/ifla-journal> invites papers
for a special issue focused on research data services and libraries across
all continents. The issue will be published in October 2016 as Volume 42:3.
In particular, the main goal of the special issue is to gather the latest
theory, research, and state-of-the-art practices from libraries that are
informing and innovating effective data services.
