BHASKER - JUL 11, 2016



In the past few years, the research in the eld of analytics/ big data has piled up and has led to an exponential increase in
newer publications and research papers. And if your aim is to stay at par with the latest happenings and a step ahead of
your peers, it becomes inevitable to go through these pieces. But how?

Given academic research is not well publicised, it might still be tricky to nd which are the ones essential for you. Which
ones should you read to be aptly relevant for your area of interest? How to dig into the pool of those hundreds of
thousands of resources? Well, many of you must have come across these doubts and we are here to offer 10 most
essential academic journals one must de nitely have access to if he/she is a data scientist.

PS: We have compiled this list based on a combination of factors including Impact factor of the journal, how relevant,

Spanning a broad array of disciplines focusing on novel big data technologies, policies, and innovations, the Journal brings
together the community to address current challenges and enforce effective efforts to organize, store, disseminate,
protect, manipulate, and, most importantly, nd the most effective strategies to make this incredible amount of information
work to bene t society, industry, academia, and government.

Big Data Research

The journal aims to promote and communicate advances in big data research by providing a fast and high quality forum
for researchers, practitioners and policy makers from the very many different communities working on, and with, this

The journal will accept papers on foundational aspects in dealing with big data, as well as papers on speci c Platforms
and Technologies used to deal with big data. To promote Data Science and interdisciplinary collaboration between elds,
and to showcase the bene ts of data driven research, papers demonstrating applications of big data in domains as
diverse as Geoscience, Social Web, Finance, e-Commerce, Health Care, Environment and Climate, Physics and Astronomy,
Chemistry, life sciences and drug discovery, digital libraries and scienti c publications, security and government will also
be considered. Occasionally the journal may publish whitepapers on policies, standards and best practices.
