The DSJ editorial board has revised the *focus and scope of the journal*.
<https://datascience.codata.org/about> It is not a big change, but rather
one of clarification in a changing world. We primarily want to *specify* our
definition of 'data science' as the classic sense of the science of data
practices that advance human understanding and knowledge — the
evidence-based study of the socio-technical developments
and transformations that affect science policy; the conduct and methods of
research; and the data systems, standards, and infrastructure that are
integral to research.

We recognize the contemporary emphasis on data science, which is more
concerned with data analytics, statistics, and inference. We embrace this
new definition but seek papers that focus specifically on the data concerns
of an application in analytics, machine learning, cybersecurity or what
have you. We continue to seek papers addressing data stewardship,
representation, re-use, policy, education etc.

Most importantly, we seek broad lessons on the science of data.
Contributors should generalize the significance of their contribution and
demonstrate how their work has wide significance or application beyond
their core study.

We look forward to hearing from you.
