William S. Hein & Co., Inc. and Susan Nevelow Mart are pleased to announce the launch of the Legal Information Review, a new journal at the intersection of law librarianship and legal information. The journal will be published once a year.

The Legal Information Review encourages submissions of applied or theoretical work on the intersection of law librarianship and legal information, including:

  • the theoretical framework for teaching legal research (issues such as information literacy theory, adult learning theory, network theory, or other educational, social science, or psychology theories);
  • information retrieval (both manual and automated systems such as artificial intelligence and law);
  • law and policy (issues such as privacy, copyright, and security);
  • information access issues (such as making legal and government information more accessible to the public, both physically and intellectually); and
  • practice issues (analyses or applications which help lawyers in their day-to-day operations).

Legal Information Review encourages manuscripts with links to author-produced videos, PowerPoints, or other media. Articles will be available in both online and print versions. The first volume is planned for December 2015. […]
