The Journal of College Literacy and Learning (JCLL) welcomes material related to advancing scholarship on reading, writing, and study strategies at the postsecondary level. JCLLis published annually by the College Literacy and Learning Special Interest Group of the International Literacy Association. It provides a forum for the exchange of information regarding research, theory, and practice. 
JCLL is a refereed publication; therefore, all manuscripts are evaluated without author identification by members of theJCLL Editorial Review Board. The review process begins with an initial evaluation by the editorial team to determine appropriateness. Appropriate manuscripts are then sent out to a minimum of two reviewers for a double-blind peer review. Following this, the editorial team will provide a decision and feedback to authors. The entire review process typically takes approximately 10-12 weeks. 
General Guidelines for Submissions:
  • Previously published or works under review elsewhere will not be considered. 
  • For all submissions, writing, citation, and documentation style should follow APA (6thedition) guidelines.
  • Figures and tables should be all black and white, and should be submitted as separate files as well as embedded in the manuscript itself.
  • Although manuscript length is not the primary consideration, full-length articles addressing research, pedagogy and theory should be 20-25 double-spaced pages.
  • Submissions for other regular sections (including Research Briefs, Theory to Practice, and Tips for the Classroom) should be 8-12 double-spaced pages.
  • Instructional Material and Book Reviews should be 500-1500 words.
