Dear colleague,

We are pleased to announce that the first issue of the Journal of Data Science, Statistics, and Visualisation (JDSSV; will become available online before the summer 2021.

We welcome contributions to data science, statistics, and visualisation and, in particular, papers which link and integrate these subject areas. Articles should be oriented towards a wide scientific audience, and can cover topics such as machine learning and statistical learning, the visualisation and verbalisation of data, visual analytics, big data infrastructures and analytics, interactive learning, and advanced computing. Scientific contributions should be of a high standard.

At the moment we have a call for papers for the Special Issue on COVID-19 Visualisation and Modeling, until June 30, 2021. More details can be found at

The Journal of Data Science, Statistics, and Visualisation is an official journal of the International Association for Statistical Computing, see
