code4lib journal: draft purpose, format, and guidelines

There's been some good discussion on the code4lib mailing list about starting a code4lib journal. At this point it looks like we'll be trying to set something up, so I've taken a preliminary stab at formulating some policies and guidelines for publishing articles. I haven't yet tried to address some of the more innovative suggestions that have come up, and I've never set up a journal before, so please go ahead and make changes, additions, and comments (the draft is on the wiki so it can be edited directly).


Interesting idea, I just wonder if somewhere out there in the journal universe there's not something close enough to the needs of this group? Is there any value in leveraging an existing journal?

Also, what about submission systems etc.?

I posted some thoughts at
