Call for papers: ESARBICA Journal

Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Branch of the International
Council on Archives

Contributions are invited that address issues related to archives
and records management. Themes that may be addressed are wide and
open, but an advanced academic level of discourse is required.
Preference will be given to manuscripts that focus on specific
issues in the region and case studies that provide "best practices".
Inter alia the following broad themes will be addressed by the
forthcoming issue of the journal:

    *   All aspects of archives from oral tradition, audio-visual
        archives to electronic records

    *   Archivists and knowledge management

    *   Information and communication technologies in the management
        of records and archives

    *   Human resources development including education and training

    *   Ethics issues that arise in the management of information
        contained in archives and records

    *   Disaster preparedness/disaster response with special
        reference to human-made disasters (e.g. destruction of
        National Library/National Archive in Baghdad)

    *   Access to information contained in archives and records

Deadline for submitting manuscripts is April 30, 2004. The Journal
uses the author-date referencing format.

Guidelines for contributors: Editorial policy: The Journal publishes
original contributions (articles, discussions of articles previously
published, review articles and book reviews) within any field of
Archival Science and Records Management. The ESARBICA Journal
appears once a year. The editors, editorial board and other referees
will evaluate and review all articles that are submitted by authors
for publication. Guest editors will prepare from time to time
special thematic issues of the Journal.

Copyright of all published materials is vested in ESARBICA. However,
authors bear full responsibility for the contents of their own
contributions. All opinions expressed in the contributions in the
Journal are those of the authors, and are not necessarily subscribed
to by the Editors, the Editorial Board or ESARBICA.

Language policy: The journal normally publishes articles in English.
Articles in the Portuguese language may be submitted. Articles in
languages other than English will only be published if they are
accompanied by a substantial English summary (500-1000 words) to
facilitate information dissemination by international abstracting

Submission of manuscripts: Contributions should not exceed 10,000
words. If possible, articles should be submitted on a computer disk
or attached to the e-mail addressed to the Editor. Microsoft Word is
the only acceptable word processing software that authors may use.
Our preferred font is Arial. Three hard-copy printouts should
accompany computer disks. Manuscripts and disks will not be returned
to authors. Each article must be preceded by an abstract in English.
The abstract should give the content of the article concisely. The
first page of the manuscript should contain the title of the
article, the name(s) and addresse(s) of the author(s) and the
address to whom correspondence should be addressed. The second page
should contain the title of the article and the abstract. The
author-date system of referencing is used within the text.

The list of references should be documented at the end of the
