CFP: Business Information Literacy & Instruction


Business Information Literacy & Instruction

The Journal of Business & Finance Librarianship, a Routledge peer-reviewed publication, invites proposals for articles to be published in a special issue addressing information literacy within business contexts.

Article submissions should focus on information literacy - the ability to identify, locate, evaluate, select, and use information - in a business context, including academic, public, and special libraries, other information organizations, and everyday life information seeking. Proposals should be research oriented, and could include empirical research, historical or philosophical analysis, or rigorous case-study research.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

* Information literacy in business-related, everyday life contexts (i.e. financial literacy, investment-related information seeking, consumerism)
* Information literacy and instruction in academic, public or special library environments
* Information literacy for the work-place
* Information literacy for entrepreneurship
* Information literacy for special professions in business (i.e. accountants, marketing professionals, financial counselors)

Proposals of 500 words or less will go through a double-blind peer review process, and should be submitted to the editor, Lisa G. O'Connor, at, no later than October 18th, 2010.

Completed manuscripts should be between 5,000-8,000 words and will also go through a double-blind peer review process. Authors will be notified of accepted proposals in early December, 2010, with manuscripts due no later than May 1, 2011.
