World-class research. Ultimate impact.
More on impact ›
Complementing the adage of "knowledge is power," with the voluminous data that encompasses our lives, we learn today that "data is the new oil." Big data can only become bigger and more - it exhibits characteristics that go beyond scale: big data is multifaceted, it evolves in temporal or streaming forms, and it includes disparate dimensions such as social, spatial, relational, and educational. Big data is not just confined in centralized database management systems, it can be produced anytime anywhere, shared explicitly or implicitly, linked automatically, and obtained by easy-to-use tools. Moreover, the key role of big data does not only revolve around the amount of data, but also on how to develop and apply high-powered analytics for knowledge discovery.
Understanding and managing the power of big data, as well as acquiring intelligence from information, is key to face the biggest challenges of the humankind. The pervasive big data has demonstrated its great potential in artificial intelligence research and advancement across many fields: from climate science to cybersecurity, to medicine and public health, to name but a few. Committed to open access and transparent review processes, Frontiers in Big Data publishes rigorously peer-reviewed research on the cutting-edge, disruptive technological revolution of big data, through its various applications and forms. Being interdisciplinary and innovative, the journal is at the forefront of disseminating scientific knowledge and impactful discoveries to academics, policy-makers, industry, and the public worldwide.

Short Name: Front. Big Data
Electronic ISSN: 2624-909X
Indexed in: Google Scholar, DOAJ, CrossRef, CLOCKSS, OpenAIRE
Frontiers in Big Data is composed of the following Specialty Sections:
The specialty sections of Frontiers in Big Data welcome submission of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Conceptual Analysis, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Policy and Practice Reviews, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review, Technology and Code, Clinical Trial, Community Case Study, Study Protocol, Core Concept and New Discovery.
When submitting a manuscript to Frontiers in Big Data, authors must submit the material directly to one of the specialty sections. Manuscripts are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the respective specialty section.
Articles published in the specialty sections above will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in the Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Big Data.
