About Journal

Web and cyberspace are growing in importance day by day. Today, we witness their wide application in all parts of our daily life. In line with this progress, new research areas emerge that demand more attention to research in these fields. International Journal on Web Research (IJWR) is a prestigious international journal on web published by the USC Center for Web Research. Despite its significance and broadness, few scientific journals have addressed this subject. Therefore, IJWR seeks to publish the researches done by the web researchers.
Web is not only a subject related to the computer science and information technology but also an important interdisciplinary subject.
As the USC Center for Web Research holds the International Conference of Web Research indexed by IEEE Xplore since 2015, the conference and journal have the opportunity to publish a wide range of researches on web.
IJWR is interested in all areas of web research, especially the following areas:
- Web Quality Assessment
- Internet Economics & Business Models
- Web Security & Privacy
- Web Retrieval & Content Analysis
- Behavioral Analysis & Personalization
- Cyber Environments & Social Networks Analysis
- Human Computer Interaction
- Web Sociology & Ethics
- Web Computing in Mobile Applications
- Web Communications & Media
- Web Software Platforms & Tools
- Distributed, Massive, & Cloud Computing Platforms
- Semantic Web
- Web Mining

Open Access

All articles published by the International Journal of Web Research are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication, without subscription charges or registration barriers.



Digital Archiving Policy


The IJWR aims to preserve all the published content on digital repositories. In order to follow that, the IJWR commits to submit the metadata of all its manuscripts to LOCKSS as we have recently implemented the use of the OJS (Open Journal System). This service is free for the OJS users and we are further discussing the process with other repositories such as RePEc. This is to ensure the availability of the published scholarly content by IJWR to the community despite any accidental loss of data in its personal archival records. IJWR has further ensured that the metadata of all of its open access journals is compatible to all the well-known repository services and their digital crawlers may regularly collect it for record and preservation. Besides, IJWR also assigns Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) to all its issues and the contents to facilitate reaching their permanent links on the web.


Article Processing Charge (APC) and Article Submission Charge (ASC)

There are no Article Processing Charges (APC) and Article Submission Charge (ASC). Both APC and ASC are free for all authors.
