In this blog post, I will discuss one of my recent and current project. I have been recently working with my colleague Chun-Wei Lin on launching a new journal, titled “Data Science and Pattern Recognition“.
This is a new open-access journal, with a focus on data science, big data, and pattern recognition. The journal will be published by the Taiwanese publisher Ubiquitous International, which already publishes several SCI journals. In the next year, we will be pushing hard to make this journal a high level journal. For this purpose, we have worked hard on creating an outstanding editorial board with world-class researchers in the fields of data science and pattern recognition.
It is our goal to make the journal EI and SCI indexed in the next years. Currently, there is no publication fee for publishing in this journal, to help support the journal initially. But there should be some in the future, since it is an open-access journal. Thus, it is a good time to submit your papers, now!
The first issue, will be published around March 2017 with 6 papers, and there will be 4 issues per year, for a total of approximately 24 papers per year. In the first issue, I will publish a survey paper on pattern mining that I have been working on recently, among several other good papers.
If you have any question about the journal, you can have a look at the website, let me know directly, or use the contact e-mail on the journal website.
