“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.
