Online Information Review is an international, double blind peer-reviewed, ISI-listed journal devoted to research in the broad field of online information in academic, government, corporate, scientific and commercial contexts. Within this broad framework the journal seeks to provide a forum for experts from a range of information-related disciplines, including information science, information technology, information management, knowledge management and related social sciences. It also includes regular viewpoint pieces, currently focussing on metrics for research evaluation and on social media research.
OIR focuses on issues relating to online systems, services and resources, and their use, with a particular focus on the processes and procedures involved in creating, managing, utilising, disseminating and repackaging online information (including social, political, technical and ethical aspects).

OIR invites full research and conceptual papers, as well as scholarly viewpoints (up to 7000 words) and major reviews in these fields, and occasionally shorter research notes (under 3000 words) on current work of particular potential.
Every submission must spell out the implications of findings in the paper for online information as distinct from implications for e-commerce, education, etc. (These implications should be mentioned in the introduction, discussion and conclusion sections of your paper.) Papers which focus on findings for specific sectors without adequate attention to the online environment will not be accepted.
In general only research-based submissions on any type of research, including technical (but non-mathematical) or conceptual are accepted.
Generally these types of submissions are rejected:
