Synergy is recognised as a partially refereed journal. That is, only those articles acknowledged in the journal as such have been part of the referee process. Synergy appears on the Register of Refereed Journals of the Research Programs and Policies Unit of the Australian Department of Education, Science and Training.
By providing both refereed articles and general material from within the teacher-librarianship community within Synergy, the journal hopes to bring quality research and discussion to the field whilst also publishing practical, timely and detailed material. Synergy also has a focus on providing in-depth reviews of recent publications of relevance to the profession.
Information for contributors
Contributors wishing to have their article proceed through the referee process must supply their article to the editor at least three months before the deadline for the issue in which it is to appear. All refereed articles will be blind refereed by at least two referees. Referees are appointed from amongst the Editorial Board of Synergy and from amongst others with relevant experience within the profession of teacher-librarianship. Articles that have been refereed will be duly acknowledged in Synergy when published.
Members are invited to consider contributing to Synergy by either writing for it themselves or suggesting relevant commentators we should approach for inclusion of their work.
