How to publish in this journal


International Journal of Information Science and Management (IJISM) is established to meet the goals of the Regional Information Center for Science and Technology (RICeST). RICeST has various scientific information service units as well as research and educational departments that attempt to operationalize the objectives of RICeST and implement its plans according to defined policies. Founded in 2003, IJISM aims to support the community under the auspices of RICeST including faculty members, researchers, experts, and students, to promote the scientific discoveries/experiments/theories and, to extend the boundaries of knowledge and information studies as a whole. IJISM is published twice a year (every six months) by RICeST. The first issue of the publication is in January and the second one in July of each year. The goals of RICeST are very clear and mainly related to information organization and retrieval. Since the establishment of RICeST and IJISM, the concepts associated with these two areas have been changed, and revolutionized, so that different approaches have emerged with new themes. Hence, IJISM aims to pull together cutting-edge researches in the dissemination of scientific findings. Join the conversation about this journal

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.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

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.
