Seeking authors with research projects and papers related to intellectual freedom and privacy

The Journal of Intellectual Freedom and Privacy (JIFP) seeks two types of submissions:

Features (4000-8000 words): research papers, peer-reviewed (including literature reviews, theoretical or critical analyses, or empirical research articles)

Commentaries (500-1500 words): short think pieces or essays, not peer-reviewed

We interpret intellectual freedom and privacy very broadly (not just in libraries, but across the broader world), so if you have a possibly-related paper, please contact the editor (

Special Notes:

·         Indexed by ProQuest and Ebsco

·         Turn-around time is generally very fast (two to four months)

·         Quarterly publication with rolling submission deadlines

·         We use Chicago style for citations but can work directly with authors to help them implement this (so you can submit a manuscript with a different style)
