*Call for Papers*
"Knowledge and Information" (K&I) is a peer-reviewed information science
book series appearing as a print and as an e-book version, publishing
high quality research monographs and topic-specific collections of
papers as well. It covers information science to the full extent and
alludes additionally to neighboring sciences such as computer science,
computational linguistics, (information) business administration, and
library science. The language of publication is English.
The scope of /information science/ comprehends representing, providing,
searching and finding of relevant knowledge including all activities of
information professionals (e.g., indexing and abstracting) and users
(e.g., their information behavior). An important research area is
/information retrieval/, the science of search engines and their users.
Topics of /knowledge representation/ include metadata as well as methods
and tools of knowledge organization systems (folksonomies,
nomenclatures, classification systems, thesauri, and ontologies).
/Informetrics/ is empirical information science and consists among
others of the domain-specific metrics (e.g., scientometrics,
webometrics, patent analysis), user and usage research, and evaluation
of information systems. /Knowledge management/ is concerned with the
sharing and distribution of internal and external information in
organizations. The /information market/ can be defined by the exchange
of digital information on networks, especial the World Wide Web. Further
important research areas of information science are information ethics,
information law, information sociology, and information policy.
Information science provides /basic research/ for other scientific
fields, among others for computer science and for library science, and
for a lot of practical endeavors, such as the construction of search
engines, the organization of digital libraries as well as commercial
information supply, the operation of catalogues of libraries, museums
etc., the installation and maintenance of corporate knowledge
management, the design of Web sites, and business strategies on the WWW.
The editors like to invite all information science scholars to offer
· monographs of research results (including Ph.D.-Theses) and
· suggestions for collections of papers
for publication in "K&I". All books may have a volume of about 300 pages
or more. Monographs and articles in collections will be reviewed at
least by one of the editors and by one of the members of the editorial
board (or another editor).
