Abstract
The publication of this issue marks a special event for JASIS: the introduction of special topics issues. It seems appropriate that the first issue is devoted to the topic of relevance, acknowledged as the most fundamental and much debated concern for information science, it being tha tacit or explicit judgment of end-users about the output of information retrieval systems. Early on, information scientists recognized that the concept of relevance was integral to information system design, development, and evaluation. However, there was little agreement as to the exact nature of relevance and even less that it could be operationalized in systems or for the evaluation of systems. While this lack of agreement continues to an extent at the present, some common understandings have developed, and these are reflected in the papers in this issue
