About Journal

The importance of the Internet and cyberspace is increasing day by day. Nowadays, we witness their widespread use in all aspects of our daily lives. Due to this progress, new research fields are emerging that require additional attention. The International Journal of Web Research (IJWR) is published by the University of Science and Culture (USC), Tehran, Iran. USC is a top-ranked private university in Iran and is supported by Academic Center for Education, Culture and Research (ACECR). In spite of the significance and scope of the Web, few scientific journals have addressed this topic. IJWR aims to publish research done by web researchers. Web research is not only related to computer science and information technology, but also an interdisciplinary field of study.


Paper Types

IJWR accept both research, applied and review papers.



As the USC Center for Web Research hosts the International Conference on Web Research, which is indexed in IEEE Xplore since 2015, the conference and journal have the opportunity to publish a wide range of web-related research.

IJWR is interested in all areas of web research, especially the following areas:

 - Machine Learning and Deep Learning on the Web

- Semantic Web

- Web Mining

- Web Quality Assessment

- Internet of Things

- Distributed, Massive, & Cloud Computing Platforms

- Blockchain  and cryptocurrency

- 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


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.
