Nordic Journal of Information Literacy in Higher Education (NORIL)

Nordic Journal of Information Literacy in Higher Education (NORIL) is a peer reviewed open access journal. Information literacy is a multidisciplinary field as it is the subject of both academic research, as well as of library pedagogical practice.

The editors would like to invite article authors and book reviewers who can contribute to a better understanding of the relationship between research-based knowledge and learning processes in Higher Education, and teaching practices within the field of information literacy.

NORIL is published by the University of Bergen Library.

Models and theories are the foundation of any scientific activity and discipline. This open-access electronic journal aims at providing a platform for theoretical papers in any field of psychology.

Submissions that present a model/theory or a revised/validated model/theory, and that confront the model/theory with the current state of empirical knowledge may be submitted to the Journal. Articles addressing the epistemological value of psychological models and theories (e.g. what is the nature of a model/theory in the psychological sciences, [how] can we validate these models/theories, etc.) are also welcome.

There is no submission fee and all published articles are freely available for everyone.

We invite articles on thematically related research in all areas of Renaissance and Early Modern literature, art history, architecture, philosophy, religion and musical research.

The themes and cultural expressions discussed, and the wider relevance of Early Modern art forms and cultural statements in contemporary society, turn the series into a valuable resource for specialists as well as for the general reader.

EMCO was initially published by the Early Modern Research Group and The Bergen Shakespeare and Drama Network, the latter currently known as the Bergen-Volda Shakespeare Network.
