    Publishing on Information Literacy: A Conversation with LIS Journal Editors

    Tuesday, June 4, 12:00 - 1:15 PM Eastern

    Hosted by the ACRL Student Learning and Information Literacy Committee

    In this 75-minute synchronous online panel with editors of information literacy-related publications, the presenters aim to make visible editors' processes and expectations when reviewing submitted manuscripts. By making  the publishing process more transparent, this event is intended to lower the barrier for colleagues who are interested in learning more about publishing in journals and ultimately to help increase the diversity of voices and perspectives published related to information literacy. The panelists will discuss possible considerations when deciding where to submit a manuscript, such as journal scope, open access, and various approaches to manuscript review. All registrants will receive a link to the event recording. To register for this event, please use this link:
