n Innovation : journal of appropriate librarianship and information work in Southern Africa - Editorial

Volume 2015, Issue 50
  • ISSN : 1025-8892



The "Open issue" format for the journal is a relatively recent one. Since the first open issue in 2011 (no. 42) there have been four subsequent ones and this issue, no. 50, is the fifth. There are advantages associated with both the theme bound issue (which in the past characterised Innovation) and the open one. In terms of the latter, as an editor, there is always the element of surprise involved. Not having "control" of the theme it is with some degree of anticipation that a file is opened revealing the topic of the submitted article. A diverse range of topics, within the broad parameters set by the journal, is usually inevitable. This particular open issue is no exception with regard to both the element of surprise and the range of topics reflected.
