Abstract:With the advancement of communication technology there has been a growing emphasis on international and intercultural communication. Following this trend information science journals have become open to a more internationalized authorship. Although the Internet today has facilitated the infrastructure for scholars to exchange work on a more international level, there may still be other barriers that interfere with a balanced internationalization of IS journals. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the internationality of several high visibility Library and information science journals by studying the permeation of international participation through the exploration of seven indicators: (1) the editorial and advisory boards, (2) peer review boards, (3) their database circulation, (4) authorship, (5) peer review evaluation criteria, (6) internationality of citations, (7) and citation impact.
