Formerly Web Intelligence and Agent Systems (ISSN print 1570-1263, ISSN online 1875-9289)

Web intelligence (WI) is now a cutting-edge area which addresses open issues towards deepening the
understanding of all Web’s entities, phenomena, and developments in utilizing the power of human brains
and man-made networks to create a better world. More specifically, the fields of how artificial intelligence
is impacting the Web of People, the Web of Data, the Web of Things, the Web of Trust, the Web of
Agents, and emerging Web in health and smart living in the 5G Era. Therefore, “Web Intelligence = AI in
the Connected World”.

WI is an official journal of the Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC), an international organization dedicated
to promoting collaborative scientific research and industrial development in the era of Web intelligence. WI
seeks to collaborate with major societies and international conferences in the field. WI is committed to
publishing research that both deepens the understanding of computational, logical, cognitive, physical,
and social foundations of the future Web, and enables the development and application of technologies
based on Web intelligence.

WI is a peer-reviewed journal, which publishes four issues a year, in both online and print form. The
journal features high-quality, original research articles (including state-of-the-art reviews), brief papers,
and letters in all theoretical and technological areas that make up the field of WI. The articles should
clearly focus on one or some of the following areas of interest:

By submitting my article to this journal, I agree to the IOS Press License to Publish: https://www.iospress.nl/service/authors/author-copyright-agreement/ and the IOS Press Privacy Policy: https://www.iospress.nl/privacy-policy/.

See instructions to authors here: http://wi-consortium.org/wias/scripts/submit.php

An Author Order Form will be provided along with the PDF proof.

Required files
For initial submission a .pdf file of the article is sufficient. After an article has been accepted for publication an editable file of the text, such as MsWord or LateX, is required. If you are uploading a paper that has been accepted for publication or accepted pending minor revisions please upload the source files of the paper. If using LaTeX please use our LaTeX template and also send a pdf version of the LaTeX file as well as separate files of all figures (if any); see "Preparation of manuscripts" for the required file formats. LaTeX packages should be compiled into .zip or .rar files.

IOS Pre-press
This journal publishes all its articles in the IOS Press Pre-Press module. By publishing articles ahead of print the latest research can be accessed much quicker. The pre-press articles are the corrected proof versions of the article and are published online shortly after the proof is created and author corrections implemented. Pre-press articles are fully citable by using the DOI number. As soon as the pre-press article is assigned to an issue, the final bibliographic information will be added. The pre-press version will then be replaced by the updated, final version.


Authors of published articles (non-prepress, final articles) will be contacted by Kudos. Kudos is a service that helps researchers maximize the impact and visibility of their research. It allows authors to enrich their articles with lay metadata, add links to related materials and promote their articles through the Kudos system to a wider public. Authors will receive no more than three emails: one invitation and a maximum of two reminders to register for the service and link the published article to their profile. Using and registering for Kudos remains entirely optional. For more information, please have a look at our authors section.


Would you like some pointers on how to help your research achieve a wider reach and greater impact? Please consult our Promotional Toolkit for Authors for tips.
