 Greetings,
 It's very nice to keep a journal in a datetree (using the capture mechanism)
 but for my uses it would actually be even more useful to keep it in a
 /weektree/. Something like this:
 
 * 2013
 ** W39 (September 23 - September 29)
 *** 2013-09-23 Monday
  note 1
  note 2
 *** 2013-09-24 Tuesday
 *** 2013-09-25 Wednesday
 ** W52 (December 23 - December 29)
 *** 2013-09-25 Wednesday
  Christmas, no work done.
 * 2014
 ** W1 (December 30 - January 5)
 *** 2013-09-31 Tuesday
  New year's eve party!

 Not quite what you want, but I was looking for how to customize the
 datetree using a capture template a bit back and made some decent
 progress. You might want to check out those threads. All you should
 need to do is figure out how to convert a date range (wherever you are
 in the current week) to a week number

I just did this (the conversion) recently so it was on my mind. This provides 
the week number as a string, not a number, and does based on “now,” but it 
should give you what you want.

Week number in ISO of beginning of this week based on a Monday week start:
(format-time-string %V (nth 0 (org-clock-special-range 'thisweek nil nil 1)))

Week number in ISO of end of this week based on a Monday week start:
(format-time-string %V (nth 1 (org-clock-special-range 'thisweek nil nil 1)))


HTH




 and then supply the
 supplementary start/stop days for the week in parentheses.
 
 I think I did have issues capturing to a non-existing top level tree;
 as in I think I had to pre-populate my year-month headline, and *then*
 I could capture my individual days to it. Anyway, give these a
 reading:
