Author Guidelines

See Also invites current and former students at UBC's School of Library, Archival and Information Studies to submit papers, posters, and other scholarly work that was created during their time in the Masters of Library and Information Studies (MLIS), Masters of Archival Studies (MAS), or Masters of Children's Literature (MACL) programs.

Submissions should be primarily concerned with the study of libraries, archives, information, or children's literature. At this time See Also is not interested in publishing fiction.

The onus is on the author to notify us if their work is accepted by another journal.
