Invitation to Submit: Failure! a new Hypothesis: the Journal of the Research Section of MLA Column

Hypothesis: the journal of the Research Section of MLA is seeking submissions for a new column in called Hypothesis: Failure! The column is dedicated to failures, lessons learned, or mistakes that mattered.

An introduction to this (hopefully) exciting new addition to Hypothesis was included on page 5 of the last issue, available at

Submissions are expected to describe the research, including the methodology and objectives, provide a narrative about the experience, and lessons learned or what would be changed if given the opportunity to repeat it. Writing style should be casual but informative. Submissions will also be subject to peer review.

Please feel free to contact Heather Holmes if you have any questions, and also please feel free to share this invitation with your colleagues – they don’t have to be health science librarians. This column welcomes submissions from all types of libraries.
