Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Information marks its 10th anniversary in 2019. Over the past decade, Information has published nearly 800 papers on the development of information science and technology, as well as their application in a broad variety of areas. Moreover, in the last few years, the journal has grown dramatically. Without the continuous support of our authors, reviewers, editors, and readers, the growth of Information would not have been possible.

To celebrate this anniversary, we are launching this Special Issue, entitled “10th Anniversary of Information—Emerging Research Challenges”. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect a set of high-quality papers that cover a broad scope of information. Particularly, we encourage researchers to present comprehensive review papers that highlight the most recent advances in the field of information science.

Prof. Dr. Willy Susilo

The implications of this loss of privacy as we become “an item in a data bank” are explored and the field of captology is described. The feedback of the users of digital media become the feedforward for those media. Full article
