Call for Papers

-Journal of Information Science Theory and practice (JISTaP)

-We would like to invite you to submit or recommend papers to Journal of Information Science Theory and Practice (JISTaP, eISSN: 2287-4577, pISSN: 2287-9099), a fast track peer-reviewed and no-fee open access academic journal published by Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI), which is a government-funded research institute providing STI services to support high-tech R&D for researchers in Korea. JISTaP marks a transition from Journal of Information Management to an English-language international journal in the area of library and information science.

JISTaP aims at publishing original studies, review papers and brief communications on information science theory and practice. The journal provides an international forum for practical as well as theoretical research in the interdisciplinary areas of information science, such as information processing and management, knowledge organization, scholarly communication and bibliometrics.

We welcome materials that reflect a wide range of perspectives and approaches on diverse areas of information science theory, application and practice. Topics covered by the journal include: information processing and management, information policy, library management, knowledge organization, metadata and classification, information seeking, information retrieval, information systems, scientific and technical information service, human-computer interaction, social media design, analytics, scholarly communication and bibliometrics. Above all, we encourage submissions of catalytic nature that explore the question of how theory can be applied to solve real world problems in the broad discipline of information science.

Co-Editors in Chief : Gary Marchionini & Dong-Geun Oh
