The Chinese Librarainship: an International Electronic Journal
Call for Paper
The Chinese Librarianship: an International Electronic Journal (CLIEJ)
focuses on the practical aspects of Chinese librarianship. It publishes
articles written by Chinese librarians, information scientists and library
school faculty and students, as well as by librarians and information
professionals of other nationalities on issues related to serving patrons
with Chinese materials. It also reports any major developments of Chinese
librarianship throughout the world.
METHODS OF ARTICLE CONTRIBUTIONS:
All article contributions should be submitted in the electronic format in
the following methods:
1. via e-mail (as mail messages or as attached documents
or files) to the Editor [shwen at siu.edu];
or 2. via ftp (In this case, you need to contact the Editor
[shwen at siu.edu]for an ftp address, username and password.)
If your article is too long for your email system to handle, try to send it
in separate parts or as an attached document or file to your email message.
In contrast with the traditional print journal, our e-journal does not
impose limitation to the article length. In other words, our authors don't
need to confine their thought to the arbitrary limit of a fixed space.
CLIEJ adopts the Publication Manual of the American Psychological
Association, (4th ed.) for its reference style, with the following
1. spell out the first or given name of the author,
rather than using the initial letter;
2. use quotation marks to cite an article in a journal
or chapter in an edited book;
3. italicize rather than underline the title of a book
or a journal.

change in future, depending on the quantity and quality of articles
submitted. In principle, we will strive to publish your articles as soon as
