Social justice in LIS research

Main goal

This project will identify scholarly work that mentions social justice issues and identify trends in the prevalence of these mentions in the literature.

Research questions

Some of the questions will be:

  • What is the prevalence of social justice related terms in the global academic production over the last 30 years?
  • How do these trends vary depending on the specific social justice issues discussed?
  • How do these trends vary by research field?
  • How do these trends vary by country?

The site is currently under construction. Check again later or get in touch for more details.
