The Journal of Literacy Research (JLR) is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal that publishes research related to literacy, language, and literacy and language education from preschool through adulthood. JLR publishes research and scholarly papers, including original research, critical reviews of research, conceptual analyses, and theoretical essays. Investigations of the social, affective, cognitive, pedagogical, technological, and political dimensions of literacy are appropriate for publication in JLR. Articles represent diverse research paradigms and theoretical orientations, and they employ a variety of methodologies and modes of inquiry. JLR serves as a forum for sharing divergent areas of research and pedagogy and encourages papers that open dialogue among professionals from a variety of disciplines. This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

JLR’s current acceptance rate is approximately 4.74%. Abstracts in languages other than English are regularly made available (i.e., Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, & Spanish).
