Call for Submissions–Upcoming Issues of DttP: Documents to the People

(via Jennifer Castle, Tennessee State University)

The editors of the open-access journal DttP: Documents to the People are soliciting submissions for upcoming issues. We are interested in publishing articles on government information and government activities at the local, state, national, and international or intergovernmental levels.

We are especially interested in articles regarding government and current events. Examples of potential topics are below.

  • open data and the sharing of data, including public data, particularly COVID-19 and health care data and census data
  • government/civic efforts and policies on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
  • the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on government services and funding
  • data and evidence-based policy-making
  • elections, voting laws and procedures

Submissions can be formatted as research articles, case studies, or informational articles; or as multiple author discussions of a topic and are editorially reviewed. The editors are open to other formats as long as they fit the scope of DttP, which focuses on government information and its use.

For more information, consult DttP‘s Guidelines and Instructions for Authors.

Any questions can be directed to Lead Editor Jennifer Castle, at dttp.editor@gmail.comDttP is the official journal of ALA’s Government Documents Roundtable (GODORT).
