Journal of Information Literacy

JIL is an international, peer- reviewed journal that aims to investigate information literacy in all its forms to address the interests of diverse IL communities of practice. JIL welcomes contributions that push the boundaries of IL beyond the educational setting and examine this phenomenon as a continuum between those involved in its development and delivery and those benefiting from its provision.  JIL has an average acceptance rate of 44% for articles submitted to the journal. Journal of Information Literacy (JIL) is the professional journal of the CILIP Information Literacy Group.
