      Scope of the Issue/Significance of Web information retrieval
      The amount of available information on the Web is continuously increasing. Web search techniques were initially based on the analysis of the Web structure, as well as the documents’ textual content. Recent applications, such as the retrieval from blogs, enterprise and intranet searching, or context-dependent searching, require new retrieval techniques.
      This special issue of the Journal of Digital Information Management will address recent and original developments in the Web information retrieval field, including those described above. We welcome high-quality papers addressing the theoretical and/or the practical issues underlying the retrieval of information from the Web.
      Submissions to the special issue should not be under consideration in any other journal or conference and will be evaluated according to the Journal of Digital Information Management reviewing criteria and appropriateness to the special issue. Papers will be reviewed for their content, technical feature, methodology, originality and results.
