About the Journal

The Information Retrieval Research Journal (IRRJ) is a new “diamond” open access journal that is in the process of being set up by the scientific community. IRRJ will provide an international forum for the electronic and paper publication of high-quality scholarly articles in all areas of Information Retrieval. A new journal is needed to support researchers from low-income countries (in for instance Africa, South and Middle America, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and South-East Asia) that cannot afford article processing charges and whose institutions cannot afford subscription fees. IRRJ has a commitment to rigorous yet rapid reviewing. All published papers will be freely available online. Final versions are published electronically immediately upon receipt. Paper volumes are published and sold by Radboud University Press. Papers will be assigned a DOI and the journal will be assigned an ISSN once the first issue is published (planned end of 2024).
