This journal is ranked by The Chartered Association of Business Schools' Academic Journal Guide, Australian Business Deans Council, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), China Computer Federation (CCF), BFI (Denmark), Computing Research & Education (CORE) Journal Ranking, The Publication Forum (Finland), Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Sciences Citation Index, Scopus, and SCImago Journal Rank (SJR).

Information Processing and Management publishes cutting-edge original research at the intersection of computing and information science concerning theory, methods, or applications in a range of domains, including but not limited to advertising, business, health, information science, information technology marketing, and social computing.

The journal aims to serve the interests of primary researchers but also practitioners in furthering knowledge at the intersection of computing and information science by providing an effective forum for the timely dissemination of advanced and topical issues. The journal is especially interested in original research articles, research survey articles, research method articles, and articles addressing critical applications of research.

Specifically, the journal is interested in four types of manuscripts, which are:

    Research manuscripts addressing topics at the intersection of computer and information science.
    Methods manuscripts focusing on the application of novel methods at the intersection of computer and information science.
    Review manuscripts assessing, in a critical and in-depth manner, a broad trend at the intersection of computer and information science, providing integration of the prior research, and recommendations for further work in the area.
    Critical application manuscripts concerning system design research at the intersection of computer and information science.

Special Issues
Special Issue on Creative Language Processing
Submission Date: 2020-10-31

Aims and scope The SI focuses on topics deepening the knowledge on the creative use of language. Instead of taking up basic topics from the fields of CL and NLP, such as improvement of part-of-speech tagging, we will promote research focused on such creative topics as humor processing, deceptive language processing, figurative language processing, and others for which the generally perceived state-of-the-art has not been established yet. Target audience The SI is addressed at the audience comprised of scientists, researchers, scholars, students and practitioners performing research in the analysis or generation of language, with a specific weight put on studies focused on the creative use of language, and the creative methods for the processing of language. The Special Issue will not accept research on basic topics for which the field has been well established, such as improvement of part-of-speech tagging, etc., unless they directly contribute to the idea of creative processing of language phenomena. List of Topics The Special Issue will invite papers on topics listed, but not limited to the following: l natural language processingl computational linguisticsl creative language processingl figurative language processingl NLP applicationsl natural language generationl emotional language processingl humor and joke processingl deceptive language detectionl emoticon processingl automatic cyberbullying detectionl fake news detectionl abusive language processingl story generationl poetry generation Submission Guidelines Prospective authors should submit original manuscripts that have not appeared, nor are under consideration, in any other journal. Prospective authors are required to follow the Author’s Guide for manuscript submission to Information Processing & Management at: To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for inclusion in the special issue, it is important that authors select “VSI: Creative Lang. Processing” when they reach the “Article Type Selection / Issue selection” step in the submission process. Referees will consider originality, significance, technical soundness, clarity of exposition, and relevance to the special issue topics above.
