Aims & Scope of the Journal

The Journal of Information Science is an international journal of high repute covering topics of interest to all those researching and working in the sciences of information and knowledge management. The Editors welcome material on any aspect of information science theory, policy, application or practice that will advance thinking in the field. Information Science is a broad based discipline which has a potential impact in almost every sphere of human activity in the emerging information age.

There have been significant advances in information technology and information processing techniques over recent years and the pace of innovation shows no sign of slowing. However, the application of these technologies is often sub-optimal because theoretical understanding lags behind.

The Journal seeks to achieve a better understanding of the principles that underpin the effective creation, organization, storage, communication and utilization of information and knowledge resources. It seeks to understand how policy and practice in the area can be built on sound theoretical or heuristic foundations to achieve a greater impact on the world economy.

Articles written from a theoretical or applied perspective are welcomed. However, theoretical articles should consider the possible application of the proposed theory in other fields of research, commerce, education or government.

Conversely, articles focusing on applied information science topics should seek to highlight the underlying theoretical principles and show how their application has been novel or lead to unusual or exemplary results
