This work-in-progress proposes that the semantic similarity of articles published in a journal can be used to quantify the scope of the journal. Preliminary results of an analysis of a set of Library and Information Science (LIS) journals show that journals with a known broader scope have flatter, left-skewed similarity distributions, with lower averages, that can be used to identify the papers that best fit the journals in which they are published. Finally, we find different patterns regarding the evolution over time of the journals’ scope.
