How to publish in this journal


The Data Science Journal (DSJ) was founded in 2002 to help build knowledge and understanding of how data practices can advance research and human knowledge. Recent decades have seen an unprecedented explosion in the human capacity to acquire, store, and manipulate data and information. We are experiencing an historic revolution in knowledge creation, communication, and utilisation. DSJ explores what that means for the conduct of research and data management. We regard data science as the ‘science of data’ — the evidence-based study of the socio-technical developments and transformations that affect science policy; the conduct and methods of research; and the data systems, standards, and infrastructure that are integral to research. A central goal of DSJ is to ensure that data are used in the most effective, efficient, and ethical way in promoting knowledge and learning. It is a peer-reviewed, open-access, electronic journal that is relevant to all sciences as well as the empirical humanities. The scope of the journal includes descriptions of data systems; their implementations, applications, infrastructures, software, legal, reproducibility, and transparency issues; the availability and usability of complex datasets; and with a particular focus on the principles, policies, and practices for data preservation and reuse.

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
