The Research Forum session will present three peer-reviewed papers describing research with the potential to make significant contributions to the field of LIS. The three papers will be selected as examples of research excellence, with a focus on work exemplifying a strong use of theory, a clear and well-organized research design, and appropriate data collection and analysis methods. Submissions emphasizing the problems, theories, methodologies, or significant research findings for LIS are welcome. All topics related to LIS will be considered. All researchers, including practitioners from all types of libraries and other organizations, LIS faculty, graduate students, and other interested individuals are encouraged to submit proposals. Both members and non-members of LRRT are welcome.

The selection committee will use a double-anonymized review process to select three papers. Authors will be required to present their papers in person at the forum and to register for the conference.‚Äč
