CFP: Journal of Western Archives

The most notable web archiving effort to date (Internet Archive) started in California in 1996. Twenty years later, archival institutions throughout the Western United States are engaged in the curation and preservation of web content.

To better explore this rapidly evolving domain of the archival frontier, the Journal of Western Archives (http://digitalcommons.usu.edu/westernarchives/) is currently seeking submissions for an upcoming special issue focused entirely on web archiving.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

* Application of new tools and workflows
* Calls to action or imagined futures
* Collaborative collections or projects
* Implementation of new programs or policies
* Lessons from advocacy or outreach
* (Local but likely shared) challenges, and solutions
* Quality assurance approaches and insights
* (Web) archival theory and practice

Acceptable formats for submission include final or work-in-progress research articles or case studies, as well as reviews of books, collections, services, or other media substantively concerning web archiving.

Potential contributors are encouraged to consult the more general submission guidelines. (http://digitalcommons.usu.edu/westernarchives/styleguide.html). Begin the submission process by creating a contributor account (http://digitalcommons.usu.edu/cgi/useradd.cgi?context=westernarchives).

The submission deadline for this special issue on web archiving is August 15, 2016.

Please contact JWA editor J. Gordon Daines III/gordon_daines@byu.edu or guest editor Nicholas Taylor/ntay@stanford.edu if you have any questions.

Journal of Western Archives is an open source and peer-reviewed journal that provides a venue where archivists working in the American West can highlight their unique contributions to the archival profession. See the journal overview (http://digitalcommons.usu.edu/westernarchives/about.html) for complete coverage of the journal’s scope and aims.
