The Journal of Information Literacy is pleased to announce the inaugural Ross Todd Award for Outstanding Research, a biennial award designed to recognise research that has been published in the Journal of Information Literacy. Dr Ross Todd, who passed away in 2022, was a founding member of the Journal of Information Literacy and served on its Editorial Board for over fifteen years. He was also one of the leading researchers in information literacy, being particularly interested in research with schools and young people.

We will be offering two awards; one for Best Research Paper, published in JIL, 2021-2022, and one for Best Project Report, published in JIL, 2021-2022. These awards will be informed by a public vote, and the final decision will be made by a panel from the Journal of Information Literacy Editorial Board. The award results will be announced at LILAC and awardees will receive a certificate outlining their achievement.

We are now seeking your input on which Research Paper and Project Report should receive the awards. A list of all the eligible papers are listed at the following link- please take a look through the list and vote for one Research Paper that you think is most deserving of the award and one Project Report that you think is most deserving of the award. We recognise that there are many reasons why people find JIL research useful so we encourage you to share thoughts about your choice in the textbox. Please only vote for one Research Paper and one Project Report.
