Journal Big Data and Computational Science (JBDCS) is a recently established open access peer reviewed multi-disciplinary journal for cognate disciplines in the Sciences and Social Sciences that will be inaugurated in 2018.

The journal focuses on disseminating the latest innovative theoretical and applied research in the analysis of big data using advanced and innovative computational science analytics and techniques, as well as their relationships to cognate disciplines across a wide range of areas in the Sciences and Social Sciences.

The intention of JBDCS is to publish innovative and high quality theoretical and applied papers, including case studies, on a wide range of topics in the analysis of big data and the use of advanced and innovative techniques in the mathematical and computational and sciences that are directly relevant for academics, researchers, and practitioners alike.

Advances in the various fields of informatics across a wide range of cognate disciplines are driving a major expansion in big data analytics and innovative developments in computational science.

Much of the innovative and advanced research on big data has focused on the application of advanced computational science methods for a better understanding of models and their underlying stochastic processes.

JBDCS seeks academically rigorous papers that will appeal to theoreticians and also have direct relevance to practitioners across a wide range of cognate disciplines in the Sciences and Social Sciences.

Papers that use rigorous mathematical, statistical and computational methods in the empirical testing of theory and models across a wide range of cognate disciplines are strongly encouraged.

In addition, case studies that encourage portability of the discoveries in empirical research to other studies and disciplines in the Sciences and Social Sciences are welcome.

JBDCS intends to coalesce researchers, academics, scientists, professors, advanced students, practitioners, and other interested individuals an opportunity to be well informed of the latest innovations in the analysis of big data through developments in computational science.

JBDCS encompasses a wide spectrum of innovative topics in the fields of Big Data and Computational Sciences, and cognate disciplines that include, but are not limited to:

JBDCS has a distinguished International Advisory Board, comprising leading academics from leading international institutions.

The Editorial Board of JBDCS exercises control over the editorial content of the journal, which is intended to be published on a quarterly basis.

JBDCS seeks to expand membership of the International Advisory Board, and welcomes a wide range of members of the Editorial Board and editorial reviewing panels.

For further information about joining the Editorial Board and Editorial Reviewing Panels, please contact: jbd.cs@clytoaccess.com

The journal’s mission is to expand the horizon of the academic disciplines of Big Data and Computational Sciences through a broad dissemination of innovations and knowledge sharing to expand understanding of these issues in cognate disciplines in the Sciences and Social Sciences.

It is a genuine challenge, and an honour and pleasure for the three co-editorialists to have been appointed the Co-Editor-in-Chief, Editor-in-Chief, and Co-Editor-in-Chief, respectively, of the Journal of Big Data and Computational Science (JBDCS).

We look forward to working with the active and vibrant members of the International Advisory Board, Editorial Board, extensive reviewing panels, and contributors to make JBDCS an accessible and leading outlet for high quality academic, theoretical, and practical research in all areas of big data and computational science, and their relationships to cognate disciplines in the Sciences and Social Sciences.

For financial support, the authors wish to thank the National Science Council, Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), Taiwan, and the Australian Research Council.
