Aims & Scope 

The Journal of Documentation (JDoc) is one of the longest-established academic journals in library/information science, providing a unique focus on theories, concepts, models, frameworks and philosophies related to documents and recorded knowledge. This peer-reviewed journal is included in both Clarivate Analytics' SSCI and in Scopus. Our articles have long-lasting value, with the longest citation half-life in their SSCI category.

• JDoc provides a link between research, scholarship and reflective professional practice. 

• It publishes research papers with novel methods or results of wide significance, in all the information-related disciplines

• Critical and scholarly reviews are welcome, as are reviews of the evidence base for professional practice, and shorter speculative articles

• We particularly welcome submissions exploring topics where concepts and models in the library and information sciences overlap with those in cognate disciplines: these disciplines include, but are not limited to, psychology and cognitive science, the physical sciences, communication and media studies, museum studies, computer science, sociology and publishing  

• We also welcome contributions in the 'Speculation in Documentation' category. These are short (no more than 5,000 words) contributions, presenting an original concept or perspective
