Overview



Aims and Scope


Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology (JASIST)

The Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology (JASIST) is a leading international forum for peer-reviewed research in information science. For more than half a century, JASIST has provided intellectual leadership by publishing original research that focuses on the production, discovery, recording, storage, representation, retrieval, presentation, manipulation, dissemination, use, and evaluation of information and on the tools and techniques associated with these processes.

The Journal welcomes rigorous work of an empirical, experimental, ethnographic, conceptual, historical, socio-technical, policy-analytic, or critical-theoretical nature. JASIST also commissions in-depth review articles (“Advances in Information Science”) and reviews of print and other media.

"Advances in Information Science" (AIS)

Statement of purpose: "Advances in Information Science” (AIS) is a series of in-depth review articles published in the pages of the Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology (JASIST), continuing a tradition established by the Annual Review of Information Science and Technology (ARIST).

Aims: AIS articles are scholarly reviews of clearly defined topics, substantiated by reference to the published literature. The aim is to furnish the reader with a complete picture of the state-of-the-art for each focal area. Review articles published in the AIS series meet the highest standards of comprehensiveness of coverage, clarity of exposition and structure, and significance of reported work. The title “Advances in Information Science” has been chosen in order to distinguish the review articles in this series from others that are merely historical reviews of the literature: the expectation is that accepted papers will push the boundaries of knowledge in emerging areas of interest. In their submissions, authors are encouraged to develop frameworks, models, and recommendations that will serve not only to orient readers new to the field under consideration, but also to point to ways in which future work may be organized and prioritized.

Scope: The original research reported in AIS’s parent journal focuses on the production, discovery, recording, storage, representation, retrieval, presentation, manipulation, dissemination, use, and evaluation of information. Similarly, the review articles published in the AIS series provide authoritative and accessible overviews of recent and ongoing work that significantly improves our understanding of these processes, and of the tools and techniques associated with them. Some of the broad areas of inquiry that lie within the scope of AIS are: knowledge production; knowledge organization; information systems design and evaluation; information access and use; and information policy. In practice, the range of topics covered in the AIS series will reflect the diversity and dynamism of the broad field of information science and technology.

Selection and review: Invitations to submit manuscripts to AIS are extended to scholars on the basis of their demonstrable authority on topics that are of current and growing interest. Manuscripts are reviewed by peers who will be asked to suggest ways in which the papers may be improved, rather than to make accept/reject decisions.
