B&F Bulletin

For five decades, the Bulletin has been an important communication tool and source for the members of the Business & Finance Division of SLA. The Bulletin conveys information about Division and member activities. It also has developed a reputation for publishing informative and practical articles on the many topics that are of interest to a specially skilled and influential, worldwide readership.

Article size can vary as appropriate for topics, and authors should refer to recent issues of the Bulletin for general guidance on style. These many options offer a high degree of freedom and opportunity to authors. Peer-reviewed articles require additional time for the review process (at least 12 weeks prior to deadlines, depending on availability of peer reviewers). Authors who wish to publish a peer-reviewed article should contact the editor for additional information.

Copy deadlines for forthcoming issues are as follows:

Spring issue: March 31
Fall issue: August 20

Publishing dates for forthcoming issues are as follows:
Spring issue: April 20
Fall issue: September 1

We invite you to submit manuscripts and to contact the editor for additional information:
