Journals publishing information retrieval research – are there any missing?

The IRSG web site (see above) has  carried a list of journals that cover information retrieval research for many years. However there are a number of broken links and some rather strange omissions, such as the Journal of Information Science. The table below is a draft of the revised version, which I have expanded a little into information and knowledge management, both of which have a significant dependency on high-quality search. Could you take a look to see if any titles are missing? If there are could you please email the titles to me at No particular deadline as we can update the page after launch, but it would be good to have as comprehensive list as possible ready for the launch at the end of August. I have matched these against the journals included in the scope of the IR Anthology.
