“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 two 
of  the editors or co-editors. 
For  proposals, suggestions, questions, etc. please contact 
Wolfgang G. Stock  (stock at phil-fak.uni-duesseldorf.de), 
Sonja  Gust von Loh  (gust-von-loh at phil-fak.uni-duesseldorf.de) or 
one of  the co-editors.
