Hypothesis Spring 2020 issue – Call for submissions (deadline April 15)

Hypothesis is an international peer-reviewed journal that provides a venue for original research and research-related content, including research studies and reflections on the process in order to encourage a broader, reflective conversation among MLA members, medical librarians, and librarians interested in research. Works published here are indexed in CINAHL, LISSA, and LISTA.

After all that, we’re also a place for ongoing conversations: reflections, lessons learned, and ideas. Hypothesis wants to be inclusive, welcoming to early career and more experienced researchers.

  • Do you have a research project or thesis currently in progress with
    preliminary findings?
  • Did you present a research poster at MLA 2019 (or elsewhere) and now
    would like to share your work in a brief publication to spread the word?
  • Or do you simply have an interest in some aspect of health sciences
    librarianship research – study designs, data collection techniques, data
    analysis software – that you’d like to write about?
  • How about writing the narrative of the work that never made it out of
    the drawer – or a planned study that didn’t work? Share your learning
    process with colleagues in *Hypothesis: *Failure, a new column.
  • We’re also thinking about a new column focused on works published solely
    to an institutional repository. Share your work, boost the signal!

If you can say yes to any of the above, please consider contributing an article to the upcoming issue of *Hypothesis*, the journal of the MLA Research Caucus. *Hypothesis* is an open access, peer-reviewed, bi-annually published journal.

The Fall/Winter issue is available on our new platform at https://journals.iupui.edu/index.php/hypothesis/issue/current, while previous issues still reside on the MLA Research Caucus website: http://www.mlanet.org/p/cm/ld/fid=503.

Any questions? Reach out to the *Hypothesis *editors at mlarshypothesis@gmail.com!
