The journal is transdisciplinary. The transdisciplinary character of InformSciJ enables us to provide you with a broad array of contributions from various disparate fields that elaborate on finding better ways to inform. Sadly, unless successful commercial business, academia still tends to prize research only if it stays within the artificial disciplinary boundries imposed by faculty structures. This view has been rejected by other organizations and businesses. This journal was created to provide the reader in one discipline with a novel perspective—even if that perspective is not necessarily novel in the discipline of the author. In this way, the journal serves the function of transdisciplinary knowledge creation.
The research topic must be explicitly related to informing. To better understand what we mean by informing, potential authors can look at Cohen (2009). Additional insights can be found in Cohen (1999), Gill and Bhattacherjee (2007) and Gill and Cohen (2009).
The journal particularly welcomes submissions on the topics of bias, misinformation, disinformation, propaganda, and such.
The most common submission types include the following:
All published articles must be grammatically correct, understandable prose, concisely written in "journal English" that is understandable by those for whom English is a second language.
