Fresh insights: student research in records management

Offering students enrolled in undergraduate, graduate, and post graduate programs the opportunity to publish their work – that is, original papers based on course assignments, projects, theses, or other kinds of research work carried out as part of their education – was the motivation for this themed issue of the Records Management Journal, entitled “Fresh Insights: Student Research in Records Management.” We received 41 extended abstracts by the deadline of May 1, 2016, and 20 authors were subsequently invited to submit their full papers. The eight articles included in this themed issue are the outcome of a lengthy, patient, sometime painful, revision process. For most contributors, this was the first time they experienced their work being assessed through a double blind peer review process. This selection of articles identifies some of the research topics emerging scholars are engaged with today, and provides some indications of the future directions of records management research and scholarship.
