Dear authors, readers and future authors,
It is my pleasure to present you the 1st number of the 35th volume of the Journal of Information and Organizational Sciences – JIOS.

In this issue a selection of 6 original scientific papers, 2 preliminary communications and 2 survey papers have been included, all of which have undergone a rigorous double-blind review process.

Some of the papers published here were already presented at the CECIIS 2010 Conference held in Varaždin between 22nd and 24th September 2010. These papers were nominated for publishing in JIOS by the chairs of the conference tracks they were presented at on the account of their research quality.

As in prior issues of the Journal, this one also comprises papers that cover themes from various ICT fields: databases, programming, IT supported learning, and other topics in the field of applied information sciences. We hope that the variety of themes will draw the attention of researchers in different ICT fields and motivate potential authors to expand the Journal’s thematic scope by other themes that may be of interest to the wider ICT research community.

I would like to use this opportunity to encourage prospective authors among you, dear readers, to submit papers at You are also invited to share with us your comments or critical remarks regarding the papers previously published in the Journal. Further, we would appreciate your willingness to become a peer-reviewed for submitted papers and thus contribute significantly to the rising quality of JIOS.

So far JIOS has been indexed in seven well known databases and now this number has risen to nine, adding “SCOPUS” and “Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts” to the database list. We are continuously investing a lot of effort to extend the list of databases where JIOS would be cited, in order to make the published papers available to a larger readers’ audience, and give your research a greater impact factor.
