*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).
