The journal will encourage both empirical and theoretical contributions that advance scientometric research and would also reach out to scholars of Science and Technology Studies (STS), sociology, economics and any other field who use scientometric data as the ‘object of investigation’ or apply scientometric analysis in policy or innovation studies. The journal thus seeks to publish articles in all the different domains of scientometrics including patent studies (techometrics) and web-based studies (webometrics).
