Articles submitted to Journal of Data Science (JDS) should satisfy the following criteria: clarity of exposition, readability, perfect English. Only original papers will be considered. Manuscripts are accepted for review with the understanding that the same work has not been and will not be and is not being currently submitted elsewhere. Submission for publication must have been approved by all of the authors. Editorial Board will take actions stated in COPE flowcharts if any malpractice is suspected. Articles submitted in JDS are sent out to peer reviewers, although submissions that are out of scope for the journal or are of an unacceptably low standard may be rejected without review. Manuscripts will generally be reviewed by two experts in the field with the aim of reaching a first decision as soon as possible. All publication decisions are made by the journals’ Editors on the basis of the reviews provided.
Journal of Data Science uses the EJMS (Electronic Journal Management System) system as peer-review system for electronic submission and single-blind peer review of manuscripts by at least three experts in the field. Reviewers are registered by the editor and receive an e-mail containing their user name and password to access the site. The review process begins when the editor receives manuscripts and screens them to see if they meet the journal standards and scope and have any potential as an article to be published in the journal. Manuscripts that are obviously inappropriate for the journal are rejected at that point. Manuscripts that are not prepared in journal style are returned to the authors. If a manuscript has some potential and is reasonably close to the proper format, it is sent out for review to persons with specialized expertise matched to the manuscript's subject matter.
