About the Author:

Christopher V. Hollister is an Associate Librarian with the University at Buffalo Libraries, where he is currently liaison to the Graduate School of Education, chair of the Information Literacy Task Force, and coordinator for the credit-bearing IL course, Library Research Methods. Chris is also an adjunct instructor for the University s Department of Library and Information Studies, and he created and regularly teaches the undergraduate level credit course, Introduction to Birding. Chris is co-founder and co-editor of the open access journal, Communications in Information Literacy, which was awarded the Special Certificate of Recognition and Appreciation by the ACRL Instruction Section in 2009.

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
