The Journal of Library and Information Science (JLIS) is published semiannually in April and October by the Department of Adult & Continuing Education, National Taiwan Normal University, Taiwan and the Chinese American Librarians Association, U.S.A. JLIS is indexed or abstracted in Index to Chinese Periodicals, Library Literature, PAIS, Information Science Abstracts, and Library & Information Science Abstracts. JLIS invites both Chinese and English manuscripts of original research in all subjects pertaining to library and information science. It also invites reviews of monographs, books, and reports about library and information science. All manuscripts submitted to JLIS should not have been published or under review for publication elsewhere. The editor and associate editor of JLIS are responsible for the final selection of content of the journal and reserve the right to reject any submissions deemed inappropriate for publication. The individual authors are fully responsible for the opinions expressed and the accuracy of facts published in articles.
Each submission should be accompanied by a cover letter indicating that the manuscript is original and not under consideration by any other journal or book. All Chinese manuscripts should be submitted to the Editorial Board of JLIS, c/o Graduate Institute of Library & Information Studies, National Taiwan Normal University, 162, Section 1, Hoping East Road, Taipei, Taiwan, or email: Dr. Ming-Hsin Chiu at email@example.com.

English manuscripts must be typed in MS Word and submitted as email attachments. Manuscripts should not exceed 10,000 words in length, not including notes, tables, and forms of data. A manuscript must have a separate title page bearing the title of the article, the author name, title, affiliation, email address, and full postal address. Author information may not appear on the manuscript itself, as the JLIS engages in double-blind review of manuscripts. Articles presented at a conference must include the name, place, and date of the conference. The body of a manuscript must be preceded by a 100-150-word abstract and 3-8 keywords, and followed by references and bibliographies. Each illustration or table should be numbered and have a brief caption. JLIS follows the Manual of the American Psychological Association for reference and bibliography style. Consult recent issues of JLIS as a guide to format.
