Information For Readers

Welcome to Library Student Journal! LSJ is an international, peer-reviewed, open access publication of the LIS field. We seek to publish the best research and most original ideas coming from future LIS-professionals. We believe that LIS students, the leaders of tomorrow's LIS field, can make an impact today.

LSJ is designed to publish serious peer-reviewed research articles alongside more informal essays, reviews, and opinion pieces.

LSJ Peer Review Process
Library Student Journal accepts a variety of submissions. Letters, Editorials, and Essays are reviewed by the editors alone; Articles are peer reviewed by a minimum of three reviewers.

Manuscripts submitted to the Articles section of the journal go through an anonymous peer review process. Articles are reviewed by at least two members of the editorial board and by at least one person outside the board. Reviewers are selected for experience and expertise relevant to the topic of the submission. Names of authors are removed from the manuscript before being sent to reviewers, and authors are not told who is reviewing their paper. Reviewers are given a review form detailing the guidelines for review followed by an area for comments and recommendations. Editors of the Articles section compile reviewer comments and work with authors to address areas of specific concern. If revisions are major, the revised manuscript goes back through the complete peer review process.
