About This Journal

A Scholarly Publication for Graduate Student Authors

School of Information Student Research Journal (SRJ) is a double-blind peer reviewed, open access journal based at the School of Information at San José State University. The SRJ was established in 2010 out of a desire to better establish a research community at the School of Information (formerly SLIS). The Journal is developed and led by current graduate students at the School of Information and advised by Dr. Anthony Bernier and the Editorial Advisory Board. The editorial team is comprised of current iSchool students, but authors may be graduate students at any institution in North America or internationally.

As a scholarly journal, the SRJ publishes manuscripts which are research-oriented and follow the conventions of scholarly discourse. The LIS Publications Wiki offers listings of avenues for publication which graduate students may pursue, and contextualizes scholarly journals within the publication landscape.
