A Selective List of Journals on Teaching & Learning

The purpose of this list is two-fold:

  • To provide sources of current awareness in general and disciplinary teaching and learning scholarship
  • To provide suggested venues for publication outside of the literature of library and information science

For instruction librarians in an academic setting, there is value in keeping current with teaching and learning scholarship reported in the literature of library and information science but also higher education and other academic disciplines. In addition, librarians who plan to publish pedagogical articles may find it helpful to identify disciplinary journals with this focus, in order to speak to teaching faculty.

For these reasons, the ACRL Instruction Section Research and Scholarship Committee provides here a selective list of teaching and learning journals that focus on instructional strategies within academic disciplines in higher education. The list is organized into broad, disciplinary categories and specifically denotes journals with an open access publishing model. Journals included in the list are:

  • English-language
  • peer-reviewed
  • focused on higher-education
  • focused on teaching and learning

This list is updated every three years, with the next updated scheduled for 2016.
