Submit an Article for the AALL/LexisNexis Call for Papers

If you need a little motivation to put the finishing touches on an article, consider submitting your work to the AALL/LexisNexis Call for Papers!

Here are a few fast facts about the writing competition:

(1) prize money is awarded;
(2) co-authorship is permitted*;
(3) submissions may address any subject relevant to law librarianship;
(4) submissions must not have already been accepted for publication;
(5) multiple submissions are permitted though only one prize can be one per author;
(6) submissions need not be an epic length; and
(7) winners are invited to speak at AALL in the panel “The Librarian as Author.”

Noted editors recently took time in a webinar to answer all manner of questions about the editorial process, scholarship in our profession, sources of inspiration, and ways to find time to write. Give the webinar a listen and get inspired to complete an article (even a short one!) to submit.

Write about a project you completed in your library; co-author with someone from a different library type for a new perspective on a traditional topic; finally finish writing that biography of Ervin H. Pollack you began in library school!

Remember: you can address any subject relevant to law librarianship, and the committee looks forward to reading your submissions!
