New Rochelle, NY, June 8, 2012-- In a world where we create over two quintillion bytes of data every day, global leaders in academia, industry, and government are grappling with the problem of how to organize, store, evaluate, share, and protect this vast amount of information. To address the questions surrounding this powerful and growing field of data discovery, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers announces the launch of Big Data, a highly innovative, peer-reviewed journal that will provide a unique forum for world-class research exploring the challenges and opportunities in collecting, analyzing, and disseminating vast amounts of data, including big data analytics.
"There is significant need for a journal on big data that will enable discussions, exchange of important ideas, and facilitate debate through a multimedia journal platform," says Mary Ann Liebert, President of Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers. "We need to harness the vast opportunities lying within big data to gain knowledge that will potentially solve many of the problems we face as a global society. This journal has this mandate."
A multidisciplinary editorial team of opinion leaders is gathering to build this new forum for the big data community, including
- Executive Editor Eugene Kolker, PhD, Chief Data Officer, Seattle Children's Hospital;
- Geoffrey Charles Fox, PhD, Associate Dean for Graduate Studies & Research, Professor of Computer Science and Informatics, Indiana University, Bloomington;
- Sorin Istrail, PhD, Julie Nguyen Brown Professor of Computational and Mathematical Sciences, Professor of Computer Science, Brown University;
