Position on Predatory Publishers
We believe that only the strongest publishers can survive and that it is only natural that some publishers will prey upon others. We do not intend to be prey.

Position on Open Access Publishing
We fully support scholarly Openness, for which reason we allow anyone to purchase our publications. Our commitment to Openness extends to describing our editorial process, in excruciating detail and in print, including exactly what we think of our submitters, their writing style, ideas, and personal grooming. For a nominal fee, we will omit this information from the publication.

Editors: Dr. Dragomir Arson and Dr. Nzinga Ransom

The editors have, at one time or another, won the World Heavyweight Library Championship, the Mixed Tag Team Library Championship, the Atomic Library Association Championship, and the Theresa Elmendorf Memorial Library Battle Royale. They are willing to take on any Library Adversaries anytime and anywhere.
