As the Indiana University Ph.D. in Information Science celebrates 50 
years (1964 to 2014) – and over 185 graduates, we are pleased to accept 
new applications to our program in the School of Informatics and 
Computing, Department of Information and Library Science.  Our doctoral 
program is one of the longest continuously running information science 
programs in the U.S. with one of the highest number of graduates.  We 
are proud of our graduates.  They have authored books and articles, and 
have been teachers of thousands of students over the past 50 years. A 
number have gone on to become Deans of schools and libraries, Directors 
of doctoral programs, Editors of journals, and Presidents of national 
professional associations.
Our Doctor of Philosophy in Information Science trains the next 
generation of information scientists—the people who will advance the 
knowledge in this field. Doctoral students are advised by faculty that 
are engaged in cutting-edge research areas such as:

-social informatics

-data science

-computer mediated communication

-scholarly communication

-online communities

-Information visualization

-social media analysis

-digital humanities


-digital library

-knowledge entity and graph mining

- semantic web and linked data

-complex network analysis

-data and text mining and information retrieval

- knowledge mining in healthcare, medicine and cognitive science

-metadata management

-science of team science

Our students can benefit from our active community of scholars that 
includes these Research Centers:

  * Catapult Center for Digital Humanities and Computational Analysis
  * _Center for Computer Mediated Communication_
  * Center for Research on Mediated Interaction (CROMI)
  * Cyberinfrastructure for Network Science (CNS) Center
  * Rob Kling Center for Social Informatics (RKCSI)
  * Web Science Lab <http://swl.slis.indiana.edu/>

Located in the ideal university town of Bloomington, Indiana, the 
program is supported by both an extensive research infrastructure – and, 
by a beautiful setting.  The technology and library resources at IU are 
stellar.  The trees, the music, and the food in Bloomington enrich 
out-of-class hours.
