>peer-reviewed electronic journal
>that is committed to the promotion of scholarly work that examines areas
>of education and information studies via interdisciplinary and critical
>frameworks. A critical framework is any approach that expands our notion
>of traditional analyses of problems and issues. The journal seeks to link

>record the voices of emerging scholars (graduate students and postdoctoral
>fellows), activists, and practitioners.

>times, we seek to promote submissions that engage alternative, liberatory
>possibilities informed by creative theories, methodologies, practices, and
>visions. In particular, we encourage submissions that:

>fields of study (such as policy, sociology, information-seeking and
>retrieval, pedagogy, evaluation, psychological development, etc.) or
>provide insight from diverse disciplines (e.g., legal theory, ethnic

>These frameworks may include, but are not restricted to, feminism,
>critical race theory, Marxism, post-colonialism, critical pedagogy, queer
