Going to LOEX in May? JIL is looking for conference reporters!
Are you attending LOEX in May? If so, please consider submitting a conference report to the Journal of Information Literacy (JIL). JIL publishes conference reports for many different IL conferences, and LOEX is always an important one to cover! Conference reports for JIL are about the length of a blog post — i.e., 750-1500 words — and contain thoughts and reflections from attendees about the main points and themes of the conference. It’s up to you to decide what you focus on, and you could choose to focus on just one strand or theme of the conference if you wished.
More information about conference reports is available on JIL’s website, and you can get a flavor for past conference updates by searching, e.g., for LOEX or ‘LILAC’ within JIL (https://ojs.lboro.ac.uk/JIL/index). Conference reports are a great way to do a bit of writing about IL and see your name in print!
Conference reports are due two months after the conference itself to allow time for copy editing and the journal production process.
If you’d like to write a conference update for LOEX — or any other IL conference — please send queries and expressions of interest to JIL’s email address email@example.com by March 31st.
