Reference Services Review (RSR) is a leading journal dedicated to the enrichment and advancement of reference knowledge and the improvement of professional practice.
Ranging from case studies to conceptual papers, its articles cover all aspects of reference and library user services in a digital age. Articles draw upon traditional areas of inquiry within the fields of information studies and education, as well as from newer interdisciplinary perspectives such critical pedagogy.
The journal raises questions, explores new frameworks for user services, advances fresh analyses and research and proposes solutions to diverse operational issues facing librarians and information professionals.
Reference Services Review is valued reading by the majority of North American library schools with its ‘au courant’ focus, and articles can be published in Gold or Green open access if an author so chooses.
