Data and Information Management

The continuous increase in the volume and detail of data captured by organizations has produced an overwhelming flow of data in either structured or unstructured format. Managing and gaining insights and, more precisely, knowledge from the produced data is a great challenge and key to competitive advantage. The ability to cross-relate private information with information publically available on the Web, and data from social networks, and the analytics solutions to mining structured and unstructured data open a wide range of possibilities for organizations to understand the needs of their customers, and to optimize the use of resources. However, collecting data from various interrelated sources to provide “complete” data, accurate information, and so to generate actionable knowledge to achieve the added value of Big Data also poses challenges for government, academia, and industry.

Data and Information Management (DIM) aims to promote cross-disciplinary data-driven information management research, especially targeting large-scale datasets in scientific/academic, government and business domains. The journal focuses on innovative theories and technologies related to data and information processing; creative applications of theories and techniques including patterns, models, and processes in various datasets; and compatible management processes and social systems required for the realization of the substantial value that data and information offers to organizations.

Specific topic areas may include but not limited to:

• Innovative theories and technologies in data-driven information analytics, including knowledge discovery and organization, cloud computing, machine learning, information visualization, and human-computer interaction

• Information organization and retrieval, and information search behaviors in data intensive environments such as social media
