MIT Press, Harvard University Start Data Science Review Journal
On Monday, MIT Press and the Harvard Data Science Initiative (HDSI) jointly launched the Harvard Data Science Review (HDSR) to make research from top global thinkers available to academics, professionals, and interested members of the public.
The inaugural edition of the journal will publish work from world renowned scholars and educators on topics ranging from machine learning models for predicting drug approvals to artificial intelligence.
The journal plans to focus on inspiring, informative, and intriguing papers, essays, stories, interviews, debates, guest columns, and data science news to foster dialogue among researchers, educators, and practitioners about data science research, practice, literacy, and workforce development.
“For too long the important work of data scientists has been opaque, appearing mainly in academic journals with limited reach,” Amy Brand, director of the MIT Press, said.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Harvard Data Science Initiative to publish work that will have a deep impact on popular understanding of the growing field of data science. The Review will be an unparalleled resource for advancing data literacy in society.”
Around the world, readers can access the digital edition for free on the PubPub platform.
