CHICAGO – The American Association of School Librarians (AASL) is seeking original, unpublished manuscripts for publication in its professional journal, Knowledge Quest. Potential topics, requirements for consideration and deadlines can be found at knowledgequest.aasl.org/manuscripts.

Knowledge Quest is devoted to offering substantive information to assist building-level school librarians, supervisors, library educators and other decision makers concerned with the development of school library programs and services. AASL seeks manuscripts that address the integration of theory and practice in school librarianship and new developments in education, learning theory and relevant disciplines. Potential authors are asked not to submit primers on the role of the school library/school librarian.

To be considered, manuscripts must not have been published previously or under consideration elsewhere. Submissions must remain product and vendor neutral. Press releases will not be considered. Authors of academic work are encouraged to submit their manuscripts to AASL’s online research journal, School Library Research (SLR).

Authors will be notified upon receipt of manuscript. Unsolicited manuscripts undergo blind review by the Knowledge Quest editorial advisory board. The process takes approximately 3-4 weeks. When the review is completed, the author will be notified of the outcome.
