Reading Horizons began in 1960 as a local newsletter and has developed into an international journal serving major colleges, universities and individual subscribers across the United States and Canada as well as a host of other countries. The journal serves as a forum for ideas from many schools of thought dedicated to building upon the knowledge base of literacy through research, theoretical essays, opinion pieces, policy studies and syntheses of best practices. Reading Horizons seeks to bring together school professionals, literacy researchers, teacher educators, parents and community leaders as they work collaboratively to widen the horizons of literacy and the language arts.
Throughout the 50 years of publication, the journal has successfully brought together professionals working in the area of literacy. The journal's motto denotes the importance of its mission: "There is no more crucial or basic skill in all of education than that of reading." Articles included in each issue evidence the significance of literacy in today's world. Reading Horizons serves as a forum for many schools of thought, sharing reports and discussions of research findings, and ideas and theories on the teaching of literacy.
