Data and Information Management

Data and Information Management (DIM) aims to promote cross-disciplinary data-driven information management research, especially targeting large-scale datasets in scientific/academic, government and business domains. The journal focuses on innovative theories and technologies related to data and information processing; creative applications of theories and techniques including patterns, models, and processes in various datasets; and compatible management processes and social systems required for the realization of the substantial value that data and information offers to organizations. DIM encourages submissions which are able to advance the knowledge and practice on data-driven information management, including original research papers, literature reviews, case studies,surveys, positioning papers and editorials. As a peer-reviewed academic journal, DIM presents 20 research papers in each volume, and provides free access to its full-text articles as soon as they are available online. The open access fees (article-processing charges) are fully paid by Wuhan University, no charges are required from authors.

Data Intelligence

Data Intelligence, hosted by the National Science Library, Chinese Academy of Sciences, is a peer-reviewed metadata centric journal that aims at data creators, data curators, data stewards, data policy makers, domain scientists and others interested in sharing data. The intent of the journal is to include, but not be limited to, paper discussing methodologies and/or data resources, but also to provide means to help scientists share and reuse each other’s data, metadata and related knowledge bases. The journal will publish not only traditional articles, but also “data articles” with the contents in the form of knowledge graphs, ontologies, linked datasets, and metadata resources irrespective of domain and format, corpus, and other resources. Data Intelligence thus aims at introducing developing and emerging data-enabled technologies that will allow scientists to deeply understand and extend the potential of data.
