Student Journals, An Open Forum for FIMS Graduate Students – Tues. Feb. 7, 12:00-1:00pm

Emily Carlisle-Johnston and Noah Churchill-Baird (with Western Libraries) and Melanie Mills (FIMS) will provide a brief overview of student-run journals and publishing, and available supports to facilitate this work here at Western. The trio will then moderate an open dialogue for participants who may be interested in running a journal for their specific program or discipline here at Western. All are welcome! Registration encouraged; please email: 

Emily Carlisle-Johnston has been a Research and Scholarly Communication Librarian at Western since 2020; previously she was a Scholarly Communication and Research Data Management Librarian at Nipissing University. She supports researchers and faculty with open access publishing and the creation and use of open educational resources. Emily is currently a co-editor of the Canadian Journal of Academic Librarianship. 

Noah Churchill-Baird is a current MLIS student working on an 8-month co-op placement in the Research and Scholarly Communication unit of Western Libraries. He took the LIS Scholarly Communication course in January 2022 and as part of that course, was a peer reviewer for the journal Emerging Library and Information Perspectives (ELIP).

Melanie Mills is an academic librarian and library administrator at FIMS and has worked across units and campuses at Western since graduating with her MLIS in 2003. This year, she is serving as President of the Ontario Library Association (OLA). Melanie is eager to hear from FIMS graduate students about their interest in student-run journals, and in particular, possible future directions for ELIP.
