Information Matters (IM) is a digital-only communication translational forum for information science, bringing relevant and current research evidence and industry developments, news, and opinion to a global public audience free of charge. The platform is sponsored by the Association for Information Science & Technology (ASIS&T).

Advertising on IM helps your organization reach a wider Information Science audience. IM content is being produced, seen, and used by many prominent scholars, practitioners, and organizations in the space of information science around the world. They not only click on our content but share it with stakeholders and use it in their daily lives, professions, and classrooms.


The platform attracts and engages thousands of visitors every month from different parts of the world.

  • attracts more than 30,000 site visitors per year, from nearly 100 countries around the world. These visitors are coming from various fields, including education, business development, administrative, and information technology.
  • Our Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn accounts receive dozens of new visitors every day. IM Twitter generates more than 500 impressions every day.
  • Through SSRN (Elsevier’s research article engagement promoter) IM articles reach government and education subscriber-institutes and information science reader-professionals in over forty countries around the world, at institutions including: Harvard University, University of Washington, University of Illinois, Columbia University, National Taiwan University, University of Mannheim, Goldman Sachs Headquarters, The Wharton School, and Intel Labs.

How to Sponsor

  • Advertise your organization by sponsoring a Featured Collection of IM Articles. This allows you to have your name associated with a special topic area (e.g., AI, digital curation) for the duration of the campaign. For example, Acme organization sponsoring the AI collection (at least 10 articles) with the Gold package will have their banner and name advertised as “Special Collection on AI Sponsored by Acme” or “Acme Presents a Special Collection on AI”. This allows the organization to have their name more strongly and publicly associated with that area.
