SAGE begins publishing Journal of Literacy Research Official Journal of the Literacy Research Association

Los Angeles, CA (MARCH 15, 2011) – SAGE has begun a partnership with the Literacy Research Association this year to publish Journal of Literacy Research (JLR), its official journal.

The Literacy Research Association is a professional organization for individuals who share an interest in research and the dissemination of information about literacy and literacy instruction. Members of the organization receive Journal of Literacy Research as benefit of membership.

“We are excited to be working with SAGE to publish the Journal of Literacy Research,” said Tom Bean, Literacy Research Association Publications Chair. “SAGE has a long history of excellence in social science publishing and we’re happy to now be a part of that.”

Previously published as the Journal of Reading Behavior, the quarterly JLR was launched in 1969 and has grown steadily in recent years. It is currently ISI ranked among the top Educational Research and Educational Psychology journals. Joining the SAGE journal family means that the journal is now available through SAGE Journals Online ( and authors can now submit articles for review through SAGE Track.

“A partnership with the LRA is important to SAGE since they have a strong history of providing top quality literacy research and SAGE has a core mission to support education and learning,” said Jayne Marks, SAGE Vice President and Editorial Director, Library Information Group.“We look forward to working with the Journal of Literacy Research in helping disseminate the quality research it publishes to help advance the field.”


The Journal of Literacy Research (JLR), the official interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal of the Literacy Research Association, publishes research on literacy, language, and literacy and language education at all levels. Investigations of the social, affective, cognitive, pedagogical, technological, and political dimensions of literacy are included, and the articles represent a variety of methodologies and modes of inquiry, encouraging open dialogue among professionals from a range of disciplines.

The Literacy Research Association (LRA) is a community of scholars dedicated to promoting research that enriches the knowledge, understanding, and development of lifespan literacies in a multicultural and multilingual world. LRA is committed to ethical research that is rigorous, methodologically diverse, and socially responsible. LRA is dedicated to disseminating such research broadly so as to promote generative theories, informed practices and sound policies. Central to its mission, LRA mentors and supports future generations of literacy scholars.
