Read the Latest Issue
It is our great pleasure and my personal honor as new editor to introduce Volume 8 Issue 1 of the IAFOR Journal of Literature & Librarianship. This issue is a selection of papers received though open submissions directly to our journal.
We would like to thank all those authors who entrusted us with their work. Manuscripts, once passing initial screening, were peer-reviewed anonymously by at least four members of our team, resulting in eight being accepted for this issue. There is a wealth of thought-provoking manuscripts here and I wish you an educative journey through the pages that follow.
