Abstract: The academic library field claims to value social responsibility, open access, equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). But academic library journal practices do not always reflect these values. This article describes a mixed-method study designed to operationalize and measure these values in practice. We found that many of the journals we examined have open access policies and practices but fall short in providing for accessibility and ensuring EDI in their publication processes. In short, library journals are not meeting the ideals that our own field has defined.
