Abstract

This paper analyses issues underlying the development of information policy with the aim to group the issues into six classes: technical and scientific information, library, information and communication technology, social, government information, and economy. Issues underlying the development of information policy need to be grouped to facilitate the analysis of the current information policy situation of any country. Classification is also an approach appropriate for a new field which has not gained academic maturity such as information policy. Additionally, classification is also important to determine the focus of information policy. This paper is based on a literature review in information policy which gathered qualitative data in analysing the issues embracing the development of information policy. Analyses revealed that the information policy group has never changed ever since the earliest research. The only change that takes place is the variety of issues that fits the group.
