Dear Colleagues,


You will be glad to know that a new journal *Journal of Scientometric
Research *( has been launched. This journal comes from
SciBiolMed. Org.which has around 20 journals with 16 journals in Scopus and
1 in SCI. From the second issue onwards, it will be published with MedKnow
which has merged with Kluver Health. The objective of this journal is to
provide a platform for scholarship in Scientometrics and also act as an
exchange between Scientometrics and other closely connected research
domains i.e. Science Technology Studies, Innovation studies etc.  To
attract scholars from interdisciplinary research traditions and also
keeping in view that scholars within Scientometrics are themselves from
heterogeneous disciplinary traditions, we have created different categories
for contributions. Along with Research Paper and Review Paper, the journal
has Perspective, and Commentary, Webliography and Research-in-Progress
paper for providing platform to young promising researchers or scholars
announcing important work in progress.
