 Recommendations of the seminar:

  1. Indian LIS journal editors should work towards improving the quality and visibility of the journals.
  2. Journal editors may look at including non-English language or Indian language papers in the journals. 
  3. Editorial Boards of journals should play a meaningful and active role. Journal editors should strive to bring out the journals on schedule. 
  4. The journal editors  may explore the possibility of open peer review system.
  5. The journal editors  may explore the possibility of open peer review system
  6. To have coordination among the journal editors, an Indian LIS Journals Editors Guild may be formed.
  7. There should be  incentives to reviewers (payments or as API points) so that the review process is expedited in a faster manner. 
  8. There should be author workshops to encourage and motivate young authors. 
  9. Scholarly writing skills should be inculcated to students as part of the MLIS programme. 
  10. There is a need for specialized journals in LIS. 
  11. There should be FAQ pages on journal websites that answers general author queries. 
  12. Journals should indicate timelines in papers and strive to maintain publishing papers based on date of receipt of articles.
