Organisations possess technology to collect, store and process vast volumes of data. However, they are often stymied in their efforts to translate this data into meaningful information that can be used to improve business processes and decision making. The cliché, "drowning in data and starving of information", seems apposite. The reasons are often related to issues which collectively form an emerging field, 'information quality'. IJIQ covers theories, practices, strategies, infrastructure, dimensions, modelling and tools for information quality in modern organisations.


 Topics covered include

  • IQ strategy, policies, standards, concepts, measures, tools
  • IQ assessment and verification, theory, models and methodologies
  • Costs of IQ and cost/benefit analysis of IQ improvements
  • Metadata quality problems and managing information as a product
  • Information mapping and information sharing
  • Information quality on the Web and Internet
  • IQ in e-government, electronic record management and e-business
  • IQ in data warehousing, data mining and supply chain management
  • Success factors affecting IQ
  • Empirical research and new research directions in fields of IQ
  • IQ applications and case studies
  • Corporate household data and customer data integration
  • Data cleansing and reconciliation, data farming
  • Trust, knowledge and society in the IQ context
  • IQ education and curriculum development

More on this journal...

IJIQ provides an international outlet for the publication of high quality papers in the field of information quality. It aims to promote research on the theory, design, analysis, management and implementation of information quality systems in service industries, manufacturing industries and government organisations. It also encourages research dealing with economic considerations of information quality as well as issues with societal and political priority such as information quality for healthcare systems and information quality in the “war on terror”.

IJIQ provides a forum for academics, researchers, practitioners and policy makers to discuss concepts and to disseminate information across the full range of issues within the field. It acts as an effective channel for exchanging innovative ideas and sharing practical experiences in managing information quality in modern organisations. IJIQ also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field.


Interest in information quality, both in industry and in academies, has grown rapidly over the past decade, and continues to grow. IJIQ provides insights and support for:

  • Professionals, academics and researchers working in the field of information and knowledge management in general and in information quality in particular
  • Practitioners and decision makers in manufacturing and service industries concerned with the management of information


IJIQ considers original research works. It publishes theoretical papers, review papers, case studies, empirical research, technical notes and book reviews. Special Issues devoted to important topics in information quality will occasionally be published.
