The purpose of this paper is to review and outline changing paradigms in information management in the context of the modern media organisation and to realign and decentralise library services according to such paradigms.
The methodology was to review literature and international best practice in newsroom library, research and reference services and apply results to a restructuring process whereby librarians were “embedded” into newsroom operations.
The new “embedded” structure resulted in librarians playing a more active role in the editorial process, and establishing closer, more collaborative, relationships with library clients. Six months after the restructure, a 15 per cent increase in research and reference work was recorded with a corresponding enhancement in the profile of the library service.
Opportunities emerged to use the restructure as a chance to re‐brand the library and, when publicising the changes to users, to increase the library's client base by marketing to staff previously unaware of library services.
The paper applies a range of trends in traditional information management literature and practice to the specific context of the newspaper newsroom, accounts of which have not hitherto been reported.

Describes the process and outputs of the findings to date in a research project to determine quality in academic business journal publishing, sponsored by a major academic publishing house. Describes the refereeing/review process for journal articles, a study of quality indicators in established “academic” journals, and the same in “practitioner” journals. Draws conclusions for quality improvement in the journals surveyed based on the findings. Draws conclusions for other researchers and publishers.

This paper aims to reflect on the future of critical perspectives on international business (cpoib) by considering some key developments in the international business (IB) context since the Journal’s launch in 2005. The Journal’s mission and scope is refreshed in light of these developments. Changes to the editorial team and editorial advisory board are also announced.
A review of some of the key developments in the IB context provides the background and justification for a revised editorial mission and scope.
Given changes in the IB environment, the need for a journal that takes a critically reflexive view on the activities of IB and issues of relevance to IB is found to be of increasing importance. This finding underlines the need for scholars to undertake empirical and conceptual studies that adopt critical perspectives to identify IB practices that are detrimental to stakeholders broadly defined and to offer alternatives.
This is the first effort to reassess and renew cpoib’s mission and scope in the light of the changes in the IB context since the Journal’s launch in 2005.
