The Open Information Science Journal
The Open Information Science Journal is an Open Access online journal, which publishes research articles, reviews, and letters in all areas of Library and Information Science, aiming at providing the most complete and reliable source of information on current developments in the field.

Manuscripts may be submitted directly to toiscij@benthamopen.org. Each peer-reviewed article that is published in a Bentham OPEN Journal is universally and freely accessible via the Internet in an easily readable and printable PDF format.

Online Manuscript Submission: An online submission and tracking service via Internet facilitates a speedy and cost-effective submission of manuscripts.1 The full manuscript has to be submitted online via Bentham's Content Management System (CMS) at http://www.bentham-editorial.org/ View Instructions

Alternatively, you may also submit your full manuscript by e-mail to toiscij@benthamopen.org

Manuscripts must be submitted by one of the authors of the manuscript, and should not be submitted by anyone on their behalf. The principal/corresponding author will be required to submit a Covering Letter along with the manuscript, on behalf of all the co-authors (if any). The author(s) will confirm that the manuscript (or any part of it) has not been published previously or is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Furthermore, any illustration, structure or table that has been published elsewhere must be reported, and copyright permission for reproduction must be obtained.

For all online submissions, please provide your complete manuscript in the form of a single zipped folder containing soft copies of all the materials (main text in MS Word or Tex/LaTeX), figures / illustrations in TIFF, PDF or JPEG, and chemical structures drawn in ChemDraw (CDX) / ISISDraw (TGF) as separate files, while a PDF version of the entire manuscript must also be included, embedded with all the figures / illustrations / tables / chemical structures etc.

It is imperative that before submission, authors should carefully proofread the files for special characters, mathematical symbols, Greek letters, equations, tables and images, quantitative evidence and analysis, to ensure that they appear in proper format.

A successful electronic submission of a manuscript will be followed by a system-generated acknowledgement to the principal/corresponding author within 72 hours of the dispatch of the manuscript. Any questions with regards to the preparation of and submission of your manuscript to the journal should be addressed to toiscij@benthamopen.org and copied to managingeditor@benthamopen.org
