Journal of Information Theory and Practice (JISTaP) aims to foster scholarly communication among researchers and practitioners of library and information science by providing a no-fee open access publishing venue to a worldwide audience. JISTaP, published by Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI), is a quarterly journal dedicated to the rapid dissemination and communication of original research as well as insightful reviews that make significant contributions to the interdisciplinary areas of library and information science.

JISTaP, with its distinguished editorial board with extensive academic qualifications, is committed to ensuring high academic standards and a broad international coverage. All submissions to JISTaP are first screened by chief editors to determine relevance and appropriateness, after which they are assigned to the members of the editorial board. The editor then submits the manuscript to a panel of two or more expert referees for peer review. Based on the panel review results and his or her own assessment, the editor submits a recommendation upon which the chief editors make the final decision regarding publication. The peer review, which often involves extensive revisions and re-reviews, is a highly rigorous process designed to enhance as well as evaluate the submitted work.

Submission of a manuscript to JISTaP is representation by the author(s) that the associated manuscript has not been published or submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. Articles published in JISTaP do not necessarily represent the views of the editors or the publisher. Authors are solely responsible for the accuracy and truthfulness of their work, for ensuring that their writing does not infringe on copyrights, for respecting individuals' rights of privacy, and for adhering to all other expectations required of scholarly publications.
