Ergon’s commitment to the field of information science is based on the acquisition of the Indeks publishing house in 1996 and the resulting cooperation with the International Society for Knowledge Organisation (ISKO), the leading professional institution in this field.

Journal Knowledge Organization
Published by the International Society for Knowledge Organization (ISKO)

The journal Knowledge Organization reflects the manifold theories, methods, and applications of knowledge organization (conceptualization, indexing, modeling, etc.). It sees itself as an interdisciplinary organ that elaborates with its contributions the foundations and principles under which knowledge is discovered, formalized, communicated, and processed. Knowledge Organization enables the participation in the ongoing discourse of a future-oriented, worldwide knowledge management and thus becomes an indispensable communication medium for all persons involved in knowledge work. This discourse will address the ever-increasing amount and variety of scientific information and the simultaneously changing technical and social conditions and will provide both theoretical and practical solutions.

The journal is aimed to archivists, librarians, computer scientists, information specialists, philosophers, sociologists, and it´s located in the subject areas of information and library sciences.
