Unique attributes

The Global Information Infrastructure is a daily reality. In spite of the many applications in all domains of our societies: e-business, e-commerce, e-learning, e-science, and e-government, for instance, and in spite of the tremendous advances by engineers and scientists, the seamless development of Web information systems and services remains a major challenge. The journal examines how current shared vision for the future is one of semantically-rich information and service oriented architecture for global information systems. This vision is at the convergence of progress in technologies such as XML, Web services, RDF, OWL, of multimedia, multimodal, and multilingual information retrieval, and of distributed, mobile and ubiquitous computing.


While the International Journal of Web Information Systems covers a broad range of topics, the journal welcomes papers that provide a perspective on all aspects of Web information systems: Web semantics and Web dynamics, Web mining and searching, Web databases and Web data integration, Web-based commerce and e-business, Web collaboration and distributed computing, Internet computing and networks, performance of Web applications, and Web multimedia services and Web-based education.

Key benefits

This journal provides a descriptive, analytical, and comprehensive assessment of factors, trends, and issues in the ever-changing field of Web Information Systems. This authoritative research-based publication also offers in-depth explanations of mobile solutions and their specific applications areas, as well as an overview of the future outlook for Web information systems. This timely reference source provides direction for future researchers to pursue when examining issues in the field, and is also the perfect tool for practitioners interested in applying pioneering concepts in practical situations.

Key journal audiences

The journal is intended for people interested in Web information systems and related areas at all levels. The primary audience of this journal includes academics, students, developers, engineers, innovators, research strategists and IT-managers who are looking for visionary concepts and stimulating ideas in Web information systems at both the theory and application levels.
