Volume 10 • Issue 3 • 2021 • Special Issue: Data Curation in Practice

The Journal of eScience Librarianship (JeSLIB) is proud to publish this Special Issue showcasing work related to the Data Curation Network (DCN). The JeSLIB Editors would like to thank DCN’s Executive Committee, particularly Jake Carlson and Cynthia Hudson Vitale, for approaching us with the idea of the special issue. Thank you also to the guest editors for their dedication and hard work in bringing it all together: Jake Carlson (University of Michigan), Cynthia Hudson Vitale (Association of Research Libraries), Lisa R. Johnston (University of Minnesota), and Hannah Hadley (Penn State University). Thanks as well to the many authors who submitted works for this, our largest issue of JeSLIB to date.

With the next regular issue of JeSLIB, we look forward to launching a new, ongoing column addressing issues related to data curation, edited by members of the Data Curation Network. Be on the watch for more about this and calls for contributions.

Editors: Lisa Johnston (Guest Editor), Cynthia Vitale (Guest Editor)
