This paper is aimed at librarians who want to publish something in a library and information science journal but have never done so before. If you fall into this category, perhaps the first thing to be said is, good for you if you've decided to take this step. We hope that you are about to join that important group of professionals, those who can be described as 'reflective practitioners'. This means that, not only are you good at your job, but you are good at thinking about your work and analysing it for others. Which can only make you better at what you do.
