ARIST 43
ARIST 43
Annual Review of Information Science and Technology
Edited by Blaise Cronin

ARIST, published annually since 1966, is a landmark publication within the information science community. It surveys the landscape of information science and technology, providing an analytical, authoritative, and accessible overview of recent trends and significant developments. The range of topics varies considerably, reflecting the dynamism of the discipline and the diversity of theoretical and applied perspectives. While ARIST continues to cover key topics associated with “classical” information science (e.g., bibliometrics, information retrieval), the editor has selectively expanded its footprint in an effort to connect information science more tightly with cognate academic and professional communities.
