School Libraries Worldwide is not only the official professional and research journal of the International Association of School Librarianship but it has become an iconic publication. It is a refereed, peer-reviewed journal, published twice yearly, in January and July and is available online only on the IASL web portal.

School Libraries Worldwide publishes current research and scholarship on any aspect of school librarianship. Contributors are invited to submit new scholarly works, such as research reports and reviews of research.

The individual issues of the journal may also include a theme section, introduced by a Theme Editor and including several articles on the theme.
