Submit a Paper to the International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems (IJSWIS)

Published Quarterly. Est. 2005.

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 Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems (IJSWIS) would like to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript for inclusion in this scholarly journal. The following describes the mission, the coverage, and the guidelines for submission to IJSWIS.

Mission

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.


Coverage

The journal’s area of interest is a superset of topics covered in conferences such as International Semantic Web Conference, European Semantic Web Conference, Asian Semantic Web Conference, the World Wide Web—Semantic Web track, and others.

  • Semantic Web applications on the Web, enterprises, desktops, personal and mobile devices, e-science and e-government applications, and associated issues of provenance, trust, privacy, security, quality, scalability, and performance
  • Semantic Web data management
  • Semantic Web issues, challenges, and implications in each of the IS research streams
  • Semantics and human computer interfaces including visualization and mashups
  • Semantics in business processes and distributed computing and services
  • Social Semantic Web and people Web
  • Standards
