Call for Papers: CIL new journal section: Innovative Practices

CIL is pleased to announce the launch of its new section, Innovative Practices. The submission deadline for manuscripts to be considered for peer review and publication in the 2018 spring and fall issues is February 2nd and August 3rd, respectively. Submissions are also accepted on an ongoing basis.

Innovative Practices will feature peer-reviewed case studies that report innovative information literacy instruction practices in higher education contexts. While CIL’s Research Articles section centers on research-based studies, Innovative Practices articles foreground information literacy innovations and their contributions to professional practice, teaching, and learning. Authors are invited to be critically reflective about the impact, the possibilities, and the challenges that they experience with their innovative projects at the local level, as well as how their experiences might help to inform reflective and innovative practices in other environments. For a complete description of the Innovative Practices section, please see the CIL Section Policies.
