Journal of Information Theory and Practice (JISTaP) aims
to foster scholarly communication among researchers and
practitioners of library and information science by
providing a no-fee open access publishing venue to
a worldwide audience. JISTaP, published by Korea
Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI),
is a quarterly journal dedicated to the rapid dissemination
and communication of original research as well as insightful
reviews that make significant contributions to the interdisciplinary
areas of library and information science.
JISTaP, with its distinguished editorial board with extensive academic
qualifications, is committed to ensuring high academic standards and
a broad international coverage. All submissions to JISTaP are first
screened by chief editors to determine relevance and appropriateness,
after which they are assigned to the members of the editorial board.
The editor then submits the manuscript to a panel of two or more
expert referees for peer review. Based on the panel review results
and his or her own assessment, the editor submits a recommendation
upon which the chief editors make the final decision regarding
publication. The peer review, which often involves extensive revisions
and re-reviews, is a highly rigorous process designed to enhance
as well as evaluate the submitted work.
Submission of a manuscript to JISTaP is representation by the author(s)
that the associated manuscript has not been published or submitted
simultaneously for publication elsewhere. Articles published in
JISTaP do not necessarily represent the views of the editors, or
the publisher. Authors are solely responsible for the accuracy
and truthfulness of their work, for ensuring that their writing
does not infringe on copyrights, for respecting individuals' rights of privacy, and for adhering to all other expectations
required of scholarly publications.
