Manuscripts accepted for publication in ACM Journal of Data and Information Quality (ACM JDIQ) must be formatted using the ACM authoring template. Please see ACM's new general submission guidelines across its journals.
Regular manuscript types include research papers, experience papers, survey papers and challenge papers. See this link for more information.
We accept manuscripts submitted as PDF files. Supplementary electronic material can accompany a submission, and can be made available with the paper on the JDIQ web page immediately upon acceptance and in the ACM Digital Library after the submission is published.
Source files (in LaTex or Microsoft Word) must be made available immediately upon acceptance
Instructions and style files are available for formatting an ACM JDIQ submission using LaTeX or Microsoft Word (Windows version, Mac 2011 with Toolbar support, Mac 2016 with Ribbon support). The guidelines to prepare a contribution are available at: https://www.acm.org/publications/authors/submissions.
Please note that the final version is re-typeset by the ACM staff using a slightly different style, so do not be concerned that the above style files do not exactly reproduce the look of the journal.
Note: Please make sure to use Small Single Columnd format - acmsmall - template for the submissions to JDIQ.
ACM JDIQ accepts submissions electronically via Manuscript. Prospective authors should go there, create an account and password, login selecting "Journal of Data and Information Quality", and proceed to the Author Center to submit a manuscript.
The process of reviewing an articles is as follows:
Our goal is to get your submission out as soon as possible.
We strive to complete this process from submission to decision in 3-4 months, though some papers can require longer periods to review.
If at any time during this process we determine a submission inappropriate for consideration by JDIQ, we will return the submission to the author immediately through administrative reject. This is to ensure that the author can decide in a timely fashion how to fix their papers or submit it to another venue.
Your submission will be returned with one of the following recommendations.
A minor/major revision decision is contingent on the timely submission of a revised manuscript, to ensure the novelty of the contribution. We expect authors to submit revised manuscripts within 8 weeks (4 weeks for a minor revision) from the decision, but extension can be granted if required.
Once your manuscript is published, we recommend that you use the ACM Author-Izer service. This service allows you to generate and post a link on your home page or institutional repository to your published article. This link will let any visitors to your personal bibliography pages download the definitive version of the articles for free from the ACM DL. These downloads will be recorded as part of your DL usage statistics. A detailed description of the service and instructions for its use may be found at: http://www.acm.org/publications/acm-author-izer-service.
An important aspect of preparing your paper for publication by ACM Press is to provide the proper indexing and retrieval information from the ACM Computing Classification System (CCS). This is beneficial to you because accurate categorization provides the reader with quick content reference, facilitating the search for related literature, as well as searches for your work in ACM's Digital Library and on other online resources.
