Why is the Journal of Critical Library and Information Studies Needed Today?
AbstractIn this Editors' Note, guest editors Andrew J Lau, Alycia Sellie, and Ronald E. Day introduce the inaugural issue for the Journal of Critical Library and Information Studies (JCLIS).
JCLIS is open access in publication, politics, and philosophy. In a world where paywalls are the norm for access to scholarly research, the Journal recognizes that removal of barriers to accessing information is key to the production and sharing of knowledge.
Authors retain intellectual property and copyright of manuscripts published in JCLIS, and JCLIS applies a Creative Commons (Attribution-NonCommercial) license to published articles. If an article is republished after initially publication in JCLIS, the republished article should indicate that it was first published by JCLIS.
