Message from the NFAIS Executive Director:

Marcie Granahan,
NFAIS Executive Director
January marks the one-year anniversary for NFAIS Advances, when we launched our inaugural issue as part of our ongoing effort to provide greater avenues for NFAIS members to discover and share relevant, timely information about the information services industry. Hopefully we are achieving our goal, and NFAIS Advances has helped drive meaningful discussions and networking opportunities among you and your colleagues.

Since our launch, we’ve watched carefully the evolving changes in the way scholarly content is being discovered and delivered, and on the horizon is a changing role for academic journals.

The societal contribution of academic journals has evolved in recent years from disseminator of ideas to certifier of quality. While this might seem a radical statement to some, check out Academic publishing is all about status, Open journals that piggyback on arXiv gather momentum, PhD Project Plan published to invite community feedback early on, as well as this week’s NFAIS Community Forum, where I discuss this in more detail.

As we embark on our second year of publication, we very much welcome your feedback on ways we can make NFAIS Advances more useful and helpful to you. Feel free to drop me an email at
