A respected source of the most up-to-date research on library and information science, the Canadian Journal of Information and Library Science is recognized internationally for its authoritative bilingual contributions to the field of information science. Established in 1976, the journal is dedicated to the publication of research findings, both in full-length and in brief format; reviews of books; software and technology; and letters to the editor.

The editorial policy of the journal is to continue the advancement of information and library science in both English and French in Canada by serving as a forum for discussion of theory and research.

The journal is concerned with research findings, understanding the issues in the field, and understanding the history, economics, technology, and human behaviour of information library systems and services.

Published quarterly by the Canadian Association for Information Science.

In response to the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications the Canadian Journal of Information and Library Science has developed a plan to ensure our authors are able to comply with the policy. There are two flavours of open access allowed by the Tri-Agency - green and gold - and we have an option for both.
Green Open Access
Twelve (12) months after publication of the version of record (i.e., the article after copyediting, tagging, typesetting, etc.), the author may deposit a copy of the accepted article in their institutional repository. Please let us know when the deposit is made so that we can update our records.
Gold Open Access
At publication, the final version of record will become freely available on our primary platform, utpjournals.press. The Author Publication Charge is $3,000.
