Aims & Scope

The SLIS Student Research Journal (SRJ) aims to showcase excellent graduate student scholarship in library and information science, archival studies, and records management. Adhering to a rigorous double-blind peer review process, SRJ upholds critical standards of scholarship in regards to the conceptualization, execution, references, and overall value of published manuscripts.

SRJ welcomes submissions of original research (primary and secondary), critical essays, and academic book reviews covering topics in library and information science, archives, or records management theory, policy, application, or practice which advance intellectual inquiry in the field.

Manuscripts

Research manuscripts should investigate an original idea or set of ideas or circumstance, and may be empirical, critical, or theoretical in nature.

Critical essays should analyze and contribute an interpretation, or analytical perspective, or new theme or concept to a theory or body of work, and may address a collection of published scholarship

See the Journal Policies (Peer Review) for more detailed criteria of assessment of manuscripts. See the Journal's Style Guide for instructions on preparing a manuscript for submission.

Book Reviews

Book reviews will address scholarly works published within the last three years. Reviews shall identify the core question asked by the work and summarizes the answer posited by the author, and contextualize the work within current LIS research
