Scope Information Services & Use is an information and information technology oriented publication with a wide scope of subject matters. International in terms of both audience and authorship, the journal aims at leaders in information management and applications in an attempt to keep them fully informed of fast-moving developments in fields such as: online systems, offline systems, electronic publishing, library automation, education and training, word processing and telecommunications. These areas are treated not only in general, but also in specific contexts; applications to business and scientific fields are sought so that a balanced view is offered to the reader. "Information services" are considered by the journal to comprise both the entities and the functions with which they are involved. These subjects are therefore considered as distinct from information uses which are concerned with service applications. Under this concept, the journal reports on intellectual processes for the organization of information, transformation techniques, media, economics and all varieties of support to services, including education and training. Education and training are also the essential elements for the other facet of the journal, the use of information. Information technology available, at the moment, is solutions waiting for problems.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
