For Authors


Technical instructions for authors

We only accept submissions in PDF format. The LaTeX sources must be provided after the manuscript is accepted. It is the author's responsibility to provide supplementary electronic files (figures, etc.) if any so that they can be read and printed by the editors and referees. The preferred format of the graphics files is vector graphics such as EPS or PDF. Code files need to be submitted and the authors should ensure that their results are reproducible. If you have more than one file to submit, do not upload all files separately, but compress all of them to one ZIP file, naming it after the main TEX file, and upload just this one ZIP file. Our reproducibility-checking team will check when the review process concludes.


Ethical requirements for authors

Authors should observe high standards concerning the ethical policies of Journal of Data Science as set out by the Commission on Publication Ethics (COPE). The authors should reveal all sources of funding for the work presented in the manuscript and should declare any conflict of interest. Falsification or fabrication of data, plagiarism, including duplicate publication of the authors’ own work without proper citation, and misappropriation of the work are all unacceptable practices. Any cases of ethical misconduct are treated very seriously and will be dealt with following the COPE guidelines.
