Annual Review of Information Science and Technology (ARIST), Volume 38
2004 volume in scholarly series debuts in Long Beach, California, at annual ASIST conference

October 20, 2003, Long Beach, California.—Information Today, Inc. (ITI) announces the publication of Volume 38 of the Annual Review of Information Science and Technology (ARIST) at the annual conference of the American Society of Information Science and Technology (ASIST), held at the Westin Long Beach Hotel in Long Beach, California, October 19–22, 2003. The volume is the latest in the scholarly series published annually by ITI on behalf of ASIST.

ARIST is celebrated for contributing a comprehensive and insightful view of the field of information science and technology since 1966. The series encompasses all aspects of the field, with topics for the annual volume selected by the editor, Blaise Cronin, based on his assessment of timeliness and reader interest. The three major sections of ARIST 38—Theory, Technology, and Policy—comprise 12 chapters on an array of significant topics contributed by leading scholars.

The contents of Volume 38 are:

• “Science and Technology Studies and Information Studies,” by Nancy A. Van House
• “New Theoretical Approaches for Human-Computer Interaction,” by Yvonne Rogers
• “Community and Electronic Community,” by David Ellis, Rachel Oldridge, and
Ana Vasconcelos
• “Latent Semantic Analysis,” by Susan T. Dumais
• “The Use of Web Search Engines in Information Science Research,” by Judit Bar-Ilan
• “Web Mining: Machine Learning for Web Applications,” by Hsinchun Chen and Michael Chau
• “Data Mining in Health and Medical Information,” by Peter A. Bath
• “Indexing, Browsing, and Searching of Digital Video,” by Alan F. Smeaton
• “ICTs and Political Life,” by Alice Robbin, Christina Courtright, and Leah Davis
• “Legal Aspects of the Web,” by Alexandre López Borrull and Charles Oppenheim
• “Preservation of Digital Objects,” by Patricia Galloway
• “The Internet and Unrefereed Scholarly Publishing,” by Rob Kling

ARIST 38 is the third volume in the series edited by Professor Blaise Cronin, Rudy Professor of Information Science at Indiana University, Bloomington, Illinois. Cronin brings to ARIST an inclusive and progressive editorial philosophy; in his introduction to Volume 38 he states, “As information science broadens its horizons, ARIST will continue to recruit authors from both the heartland and the periphery to appropriately reflect the domain’s inherently interdisciplinary character.”

Commenting on this editorial approach in his review of the previous volume (ARIST 37, 2003) for the Journal of Documentation, Professor Jack Meadows of Loughborough University (U.K.) said, “The editor notes in his Introduction that he has tried to introduce new topics and authors in this year’s volume. He has not only succeeded, but has produced a volume that is likely to contain something of interest to most people concerned with information science research.”

ARIST 38 (588 pp/hardbound/$79.95 ASIST member/$99.95 nonmember/ISBN: 1-57387-185-0) is published by Information Today, Inc. on behalf of the American Society of Information Science and Technology (ASIST).
