It is our great pleasure and my personal honour as the editor-in-chief to introduce Volume 12 Issue 2 of the IAFOR Journal of Literature & Librarianship. This issue is a selection of papers received through open submissions directly to our journal.

This is the eighth issue of the journal under my editorship (the 21st for IAFOR journals), this time, with the precious help of our new Co-Editor, Dr Alyson Miller (Deakin University, Australia), and our two Associate Editors, Dr Murielle El Hajj (Lusail University, Qatar) and Dr Fernando Darío González Grueso (Tamkang University, Taiwan).

We would like to thank all those authors who entrusted our journal with their research. Manuscripts, once passing initial screening, were peer-reviewed anonymously by four to six members of our team, resulting in eight being accepted for this issue.

Best regards,

Bernard Montoneri
