About Information

Aims

Information (ISSN 2078-2489) is an international, scientific open access journal of information science and technology, data, knowledge and communication. It publishes reviews, regular research papers and short communications. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible.
