Michelle Pearse of the Harvard Law School Library and Benjamin Keele of the William and Mary Wolf Law Library, have posted How Librarians Can Help Improve Law Journal Publishing, on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
Librarians are well-positioned to improve law journal publishing and help it evolve in the ever-changing digital environment. They can provide student editors with advice on a variety of issues such as copyright, data, preservation, and version control. Librarians can also help journals adopt technical standards and improve the discoverability and usability of journal content. While few libraries can adopt all these suggestions, a checklist of ideas is provided to help librarians select those that are most suitable to their libraries and journals.
