Journal of Data and Information Science (JDIS, formerly Chinese Journal of Library and Information Science), sponsored by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and published quarterly by the National Science Library of CAS, is the first internationally published English-language academic journal in Library and Information Science and related fields from China.
JDIS devotes itself to the study and application of the theories, methods, techniques, services, and infrastructural facilities using big data to support knowledge discovery for decision and policy making. The basic emphasis is research that focuses on big data, analytics, and knowledge discovery, and supports decision making. Special attention is given to knowledge discovery to detect and predict structures, trends, behaviors, relations, and evolutions and disruptions in scientific research. This includes issues of innovation, business, politics, security, media and communications, and social development. The big data topics may include metadata or full content data, text or non-textural data, structured or non-structural data, domain specific or cross-domain data, and dynamic or interactive data.
The main areas of interest are:
1. New theories, methods, and techniques of big data-based data mining, knowledge discovery, and informatics, including but not limited to scientometrics, communication analysis, social network analysis, tech and industry analysis, competitive intelligence, knowledge mapping, evidence-based policy analysis, and predictive analysis.
2. New methods, architectures, and facilities to develop or improve knowledge infrastructure that can support knowledge organization and sophisticated analytics, including but not limited to ontology construction, knowledge organization, semantic linked data, knowledge integration and fusion, semantic retrieval, domain-specific knowledge infrastructure, and semantic sciences.
3. New mechanisms, methods, and tools to embed knowledge analytics and knowledge discovery into actual operation, service, or managerial processes, including but not limited to knowledge-assisted scientific discovery, and data mining-driven intelligent workflows in learning, communications, or management.
Specific topic areas may include (but are not limited to):
Knowledge discovery and data mining
Knowledge integration and fusion
Semantic Web metrics
Analytic and diagnostic informetrics
Social network analysis and metrics
Semantic and interactively analytic retrieval
Evidence-based policy analysis
Intelligent knowledge production
Knowledge-driven workflow management and decision-making
Knowledge-driven collaboration and its management
Domain knowledge infrastructure with knowledge fusion and analytics
Training for data & information scientists
Development of data and information services
JDIS publishes theoretical and empirical work. Systematic reviews are welcome and applied research in development of advanced methods, services, and best practices is also an important part. But simple application of established informetrics on a specific research field or country is out of the scope.
Welcome to submit your papers to JDIS.
Why subscribe and read
JDIS is the first and only English journal from China in Library and Information Science and related fields. With an aim to disseminate the cutting-edge research in these fields, it is devoted to the study and application of the theories, methods, techniques, services, and infrastructural facilities using big data to support knowledge discovery for decision and policy making. The basic emphasis is big data-based, analytics centered, knowledge discovery driven, and decision making supporting. JDIS has gathered a big body of high profile experts across the world who contribute their research to the journal. The international authors account for around 62% in its first publication year (2016).
JDIS is the first and only English journal from China in Library and Information Science and related fields. It owns a number of world front-line scholars as editorial board members or reviewers. The turnaround time on average for a manuscript from submission to final decision is less than two and a half months.
Sciendo archives the contents of this journal in Portico- digital long-term preservation service of scholarly books, journals and collections.
The editorial board is participating in a growing community of Similarity Check System's users in order to ensure that the content published is original and trustworthy. Similarity Check is a medium that allows for comprehensive manuscripts screening, aimed to eliminate plagiarism and provide a high standard and quality peer-review process.

All submissions for JDIS will be checked first by the Scientific Editors for the composition and arrangement against JDIS’s Author Guidelines, as well as for the plagiarism detection. Then the Editor-in-Chief will evaluate them for suitability in the journal on the basis of scope and quality, with possible consultation from other members of the Editorial Board. Contributions deemed unsuitable can be rejected without further review.
Articles and reviews deemed in scope and of sufficient quality will be sent to external reviewers (typically two or three) for an in-depth review. The names of the authors will be disclosed to reviewers. Reviewers will be kept anonymous unless they choose to disclose their identity to the authors.
JDIS asks that the review report should include the following parts:
A summary identifying the specific strengths and weaknesses of the work, including where appropriate, the novelty of the study and the conceptual advance over previously published works.
Comments on the quality of the scientific content and writing.
Suggestions as to what additional changes might be required in order to support the claims being made.
Whether the authors make appropriate citations to the pre-existing literature.
The types of decisions are accept without revision, minor revision, major revision and reject. It takes about 28 days from submission to first decision.
For the manuscripts with high quality, JDIS provides a Pub-Express channel which means the submissions through this channel can be directly sent to the Co-EICs for a quick but comprehensive evaluation without entering the external peer-review process. The final decision on whether the manuscript is accepted or not for publication by JDIS is normally made within 72 hours. Authors who think their manuscript worthy of quick publication are encouraged to apply to the Pub-Express by stating the exact reasons in Cover Letter when submitting. Please note: entering into the Pub-Express does not mean final acceptance.
