This special issue, to be published in 2019, is edited by Joachim Griesbaum, University of Hildesheim (Germany), Dirk Lewandowski, Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and Isabella Peters, Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel and ZBW (Germany).

This special issue focuses on information science research from the German-speaking countries. It aims to give researchers from these countries a forum to disseminate their research findings to an international audience and to bring together research from these countries in one venue.

We welcome research papers concerning all aspects relevant to information science. All submissions will be reviewed by international experts not affiliated with an institution in the German-speaking countries. The journal follows a double-blind review process.

All methodological approaches are welcome. Case studies and proof-of-concept studies should present new and unique findings and highlight future research possibilities and developments. Opinion pieces will not be considered for the special issue.
Papers should be 4,000 to 9,000 words in length (including references) and in accordance with the journal’s author guidelines. At least one author has to be affiliated with an institution in the German-speaking countries. Contributions should be submitted in English.
