FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Call for articles for DttP

Hi all. I’m forwarding this announcement for article submissions to Documents to the People (DttP), the official journal of the Government Documents Round Table (GODORT). I hope you’ll consider submitting an article! (Editor’s note: I’m currently the chair of the GODORT Publications Committee, which has oversight of the DttP editorial staff. However, there is no relationship between FGI and GODORT.)


The editors of Documents to the People (DttP) announce a call for proposals for the Fall 2009 issue.

DttP: Documents to the People is the official publication of the Government Documents Round Table (GODORT) of the American Library Association (ALA). DttP features articles on local, state, national, and international government information, government activities, and documents the professional activities of GODORT. All topics relevant to the mission of the journal and GODORT are welcome.

Brief proposals of 250-500 words are due by March 1, 2009. Notifications to authors of acceptance for the Fall 2009 issue will be made by March 15, 2009. Full manuscripts of 2,500-3,000 words are due by July 1, 2009.

Style and manuscript information can be found in the DttP instructions for authors

Please note that while this is a call for proposals for the Fall 2009 issue, we will use the pool of submissions for content of future issues – particularly Spring and Summer 2010.

Please send queries and proposals to one or both of the Dttp co-lead editors:
