The International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems (IJSWIS) promotes a knowledge transfer channel where academics, practitioners, and researchers can discuss, analyze, criticize, synthesize, communicate, elaborate, and simplify the more-than-promising technology of the semantic Web in the context of information systems. The journal aims to establish value-adding knowledge transfer and personal development channels in three distinctive areas: academia, industry, and government.

The International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems (IJSWIS) is an archival journal that publishes high quality original manuscripts in all aspects of Semantic Web that are relevant to computer science and information systems communities. IJSWIS is an open forum aiming to cultivate the Semantic Web vision within the information systems research community. The main focus is on information systems discipline and working towards the delivery of the main implications that the Semantic Web brings to information systems and the information/knowledge society.

Reviews and Testimonials

Today's Web is rich in data but poor in semantic. Semantic Web will help realize the true understanding of humans by computers. The International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems (IJSWIS) is the only international journal focusing on the intersection of the the Semantic Web and Information Systems areas. The journal aims to not only advance the state of Semantic Web technologies but also improve our understanding of the impact of Semantic Web technologies on individuals and organizations and our understanding of users' requirements for Semantic Web technologies.

– Lina Zhou, University of Maryland-Balitmore County, USA

The International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems is instrumental in stimulating research and practical debate on the technologies, applications and implications of the Semantic Web, providing a unique specialized forum for the publication of novel research in these topics.
