Submit your research to MLA Hypothesis Open Access Journal!


Happy Fall!

It's never too late to make a submission for upcoming issues of the Hypothesis Research Journal for Health Information Professionals, produced by the Medical Library Association’s Research Caucus. You may review articles from a recent issue or from the Archive for inspiration. If you know a LIS student who has an interesting project we would welcome a submission from them.

Papers can be:

  • Library specific Research. (e.g., Case Reports, Systematic Reviews, Surveys, Case Study, etc.)
  • A practical Methods Moment about research methods, what they are and what they mean for librarians.
  • A reflective Voices of Experience about your research experience, positive and negative outcomes.
  • The Failure column is a great way to share your research frustrations. Enough said!
  • Our NEW commentaries sections about relevant issues that will influence the information field.

Submissions are accepted year-round. To have your submission considered for a specific issue or if you have any questions, please email

Be sure to follow us on Twitter for the latest information or to share your thoughts on library research.

Many Thanks, Stay Safe, and Stay Warm!

The Hypothesis Team
