Scope

Submissions are expected to address one or more well thought-out problems or challenges in information organization and be designed with a rigorous research methodology. Studies should have more than local interest and bring new knowledge to the readership. It is highly recommended that authors complete all the fields in the structured abstract, including the research limitations/implications, practical implications and social implications, to facilitate editors and reviewers’ understanding of the significance of the submission. Studies that do not have a good research design and bring no new knowledge will be considered insignificant. The editors are likely to reject submissions that are not related to data or information organization, such as bibliometric studies and pure user behavioural studies applying survey methods. Exceptions are made for the types of studies that develop innovative approaches to organize collected data for the purposes of expediting data analysis or research finding assessment. In general, survey studies exploring the use of information resources in a particular library, a university or a nation will not be accepted unless the study provides generalizable new knowledge for information resource organization for a particular community or population. The journal welcomes submissions on: Personal digital archiving Digital ‘life’ The cultural record Scholarly communication Social media interaction and analysis Health communication Geographical information Big data Security and governance Language and lexicons Classification and coding.

SJR

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.
