Nordic Journal of Information Literacy in Higher Education

Nordic Journal of Information Literacy in Higher Education (NORIL) is a peer reviewed open access journal. Information literacy is a multidisciplinary field as it is the subject of both academic research, as well as of library pedagogical practice. The development of knowledge in the field is nourished by perspectives from different academic disciplines, such as pedagogy, sociology, media studies, library and information science and psychology.

We would like to invite article authors and book reviewers who can contribute to a better understanding of the relationship between research-based knowledge and learning processes in Higher Education, and teaching practices within the field of information literacy.

Call for papers

Nordic Journal of Information Literacy in Higher Education is open for submissions of research articles, best practice articles and bookreviews. Contributions are accepted in Swedish, Danish, Norwegian or English.
