Focus and Scope

Journal of Intellectual Freedom & Privacy (JIFP) will incorporate many of the features of the Newsletter on Intellectual Freedom. Readers will still read in each issue about the latest incidents of book banning in “censorship dateline,” the latest court rulings in “from the bench,” legal controversies in “is it legal?” and, of course, “success stories.” New ALA intellectual freedom policies and reports to the ALA Council from the Intellectual Freedom Committee and the Freedom to Read Foundation will also continue to appear.

In addition, the journal will include refereed essays and peer-reviewed articles on intellectual freedom and privacy, as well as book reviews, legal briefs and opinion pieces. Our goal is to have JIFP at the center of discourse on intellectual freedom and privacy issues in libraries.

Journal of Intellectual Freedom & Privacy is published quarterly (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter) by the American Library Association, 50 E. Huron St., Chicago, IL 60611.
