The Journal of Information Literacy (JIL) publishes innovative and challenging research articles and project reports that push the boundaries of information literacy thinking in theory, practice and method, and which aim to develop deep and critical understandings of the role, contribution and impact of information literacies in everyday health, education and workplace contexts. Articles within JIL are from both internationally renowned authors and library professionals who teach or undertake research into information literacy.
JIL is published twice a year in December and June. Additional special themed issues are also possible and the editor welcomes suggestions.
