Editorial: Embracing an Open Future

Rachel Scott, Michael Fernandez


This issue of LRTS marks the first under the guidance of the new editorial team, and we’d like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves, describe the work we are currently undertaking, and look ahead towards our goals for this publication. We are both pleased to work with our colleagues throughout the profession to ensure that LRTS remains integral to the scholarship and practice of library collections, technical services, scholarly communication, and related areas. LRTS is in a time of transition. We began our work in March and have since finalized the editorial board, familiarized ourselves with the articles under review, and met with a variety of groups in the Core shared governance structure. Core is still a young organization and the editorial staff of the three Core journals—Information Technology and Libraries, Library Leadership & Management, and LRTS—have been given the charge of bringing the journals into alignment. Among other things, this will mean implementing a shared procedure to facilitate name change requests and, eventually, migrating all journals to a unified platform. Importantly, it will also mean that LRTS content will be free to read with no embargo beginning in 2023.
