Aims & Scope 

The Journal of Documentation (JDoc) is a one of the longest-established academic journals in library/information science, providing a unique focus on theories, concepts, models, frameworks and philosophies related to documents and recorded knowledge. This peer-reviewed journal is included in both ISI and SCOPUS. Our articles have long-lasting value, with the longest citation half-life in ISI’s LIS category.

JDoc provides a link between research, scholarship and reflective professional practice. 

It publishes research papers with novel methods or results of wide significance, in all the information-related disciplines

Critical and scholarly reviews are welcome, as are reviews of the evidence base for professional practice, and shorter speculative articles

We particularly welcome submissions exploring topics where concepts and models in the library and information sciences overlap with those in cognate disciplines: these disciplines include, but are not limited to, psychology and cognitive science, the physical sciences, communication and media studies, museum studies, computer science, sociology and publishing  

We also welcome contributions in the 'Speculation in Documentation' category. These are short (no more than 5,000 words) contributions, presenting an original concept or perspective
