oa South African Journal of Libraries and Information Science - Editorial

Volume 81, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0256-8861



It is always a challenge bringing out the year's second issue of SAJLIS, usually targeted for the end of the year - winding down for the year and the ensuing festive period usually causes a hiatus in the activities of authors and reviewers. Notwithstanding this, the Editorial Team tries its best to bring the issue out early in the New Year. Despite this challenge and the need to meet its quality standards, the journal managed to bring to the final stages of publication in this 81(2) issue, five research article submissions and a book review. It is heartening to note that included in this issue are contributions from practitioners actively researching in their work environments, higher degree students publishing under the mentorship of their professors, first-time authors, and also those publishing in SAJLIS for the first time. The journal welcomes this diversity, especially in the context of scholarly publications in a small discipline such as LIS which could easily be dominated by a particular category of author.
