From Booklist:

This comprehensive handbook leads aspiring LIS authors through the writing and publishing process, from developing a scholarly paper to selecting a journal and navigating submission and peer review. Veteran journal editor Hollister presents examples drawn from the LIS literature and offers an insider perspective on common mistakes of authors in the field. The book’s step-by-step approach is particularly effective in the “Elements of the Scholarly Paper” chapter, which provides checklists and examples for each section of a standard article; another chapter clearly outlines the publication process. Recommended for students, academic librarians, and anyone interested in contributing to the professional literature. --Lindsay Harmon
