Reviews and Testimonials

This journal will fill a very important gap by focusing on in-depth academic research in the important area of Web Services.

– Hemant Jain, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, USA

The Web-service technology provides a uniform infrastructure for Internet users and organizations to share heterogeneous information and software resources. IJWSR provides a medium for scholars and practitioners world-wide to publish their research and experimental results related to the technology and its applications.

– Stanley Su, University of Florida, USA

Web Services offer today's best hope for managing application integration (especially those created by numerous vendors) in the Internet environment. JWSR recognizes this opportunity, and as such, is well positioned to be a critical resource to the computer science community. Given the talent and track record of the founding editors and the goals they set for the journal, I am confident that JWSR will succeed and be valuable for a long time.
