Library & Information Sciences

eJournal Collection



Closely aligned to the evolving Library Science field, this interdisciplinary and outward-looking collection features research intersecting with information systems, information science and education.

Selected articles are published in partnership with The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), and under an arrangement with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Global Libraries Initiative.

100% of titles are ranked by Scopus and 7 (40%) appear in the Journal Citation Reports; including the Journal of Documentation, one of the longest-established journals in the field, with content dating back to the 1940s.

Article submissions are closely mapped against research trends to ensure published content reflects areas of current or rapidly emerging interest. And, with no embargoes, you are always guaranteed immediate access to the latest research.

All articles are hosted on our Emerald Insight platform, which has been custom designed to ensure you can find and access the content you need on any device.
