Synergy is published twice annually (May and October) by the School Library Association of Victoria (SLAV) . Its aim is to bring to members a wider view of the world of school librarianship with particular emphasis on current research, directions and ideas in educational practice.
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 (2006). 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.
