JDSSV – First issues in second volume
Title: First issues in second volume of the Journal of Data Science, Statistics and Visualization
Summary: JDSSV has published its first issues for the second volume. JDSSV is completely open access. The papers can be accessed at
It is our great pleasure to announce that Journal of Data Science, Statistics, and Visualization (JDSSV) has now published its first issues of 2022. JDSSV is completely open access. The published papers can be accessed at
Feel free to send this announcement to all your colleagues with an interest in data science, statistics and/or visualisation.
JDSSV is an international refereed journal which creates a forum to present recent progress and ideas in the different disciplines of data science, statistics, and visualisation. JDSSV welcomes submissions 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.
The journal explicitly welcomes contributions that include software with the aim of reproducibility of the results and application of the proposed methodology to other data by the reader. It is expected that data used in a paper are provided.
Initial submissions only require a pdf version of the manuscript with accompanying software code and necessary supplementary material. Manuscripts can be submitted online at https://jdssv.org.
