The Partnership is behind an open source journal serving the library profession, Partnership: the Canadian Journal of Library and Information Practice and Research.

The current issue can be accessed here.

As described on their website, “Partnership is a library and information practitioner’s journal published twice a year.  Papers may be submitted at any time for publication consideration. Potential articles are reviewed by members of an editorial committee.  Articles are published in several categories.  Feature articles on theory & research and on innovations in practice are in-depth, peer-reviewed papers that typically fall in the range of 3,000 to 7,000 words.  Other types of articles accepted include viewpoints, conference presentations, profiles, news & announcements, professional development and reviews.”

If you are interested in having something published in the journal, check out this presentation made by Partnership Journal staff at the 2013 OLA Super Conference: Get Published PartnershipJournal 2013.  The authors describe it as follows: “This presentation covers the origin, history and scope of Partnership: the Canadian Journal of Library and Information Practice and Research; the editorial process and timeframes; research and scholarship for librarians; the peer review process; the components of a good research article; practical tips on what editors look for in a manuscript submission with examples from Partnership journal. The presentation is intended for anyone writing a research article but should be particularly helpful to first-time authors.”
