Aims & Scope

We are interested in featuring new voices and lines of inquiry. We seek submissions from both researchers and practitioners, that fall into one of three submission categories:

  • Opinions/First Drafts – Editorial in nature; the first draft of an idea or argument.
  • White Papers – Longer form discussions that may include research.
  • Peer Reviewed – Long form articles that include original research and arguments, and are submitted for review by our Editorial Board and/or external reviewers.

Who Can Write for The Political Librarian?

We want to bring in a variety of perspectives to the journal and do not limit our contributors to just those working in the field of library and information science. We seek submissions from researchers, practitioners, community members, or others dedicated to furthering the discussion, promoting research, and helping to re-envision tax policy and public policy on the extremely local level.
