Evidence Based Library and Information Practice (EBLIP) is a peer reviewed, open access journal, which provides a forum for librarians and other information professionals to discover research that may contribute to decision making in professional practice. EBLIP is published quarterly by the University of Alberta Learning Services. EBLIP publishes original research and commentary on the topic of evidence based library and information practice, as well as reviews of previously published research (evidence summaries) on a wide number of topics.


EBLIP seeks submissions for the following sections:


·         Classics: Contributions to the “Classics” section follow a structured format designed to highlight, summarize, and critically appraise research studies that stood the test of time and continue to have an impact on library and information practice. 


·         Commentaries: Commentaries are opinion pieces on a topic related to evidence based practice. This is a non peer-reviewed section.


·         Review Articles: Review articles provide a way for librarians to obtain an overview of the evidence on a particular topic, and stay current with the literature.


·         Using Evidence in Practice: The “Using Evidence in Practice” section features brief reports of LIS practitioners' use of evidence to assist with decision making. This is a non-peer reviewed section.
