Call for Papers: Emerging Trends in Data Science and Business Analytics Models and Applications, Decision Analytics Journal (Special Issue)

The accelerating volume of data in organizations has made data science and business analytics one of the fastest-growing fields across every industry. Data science and business analytics apply mathematical, statistical, operational research, and information systems modeling to solve real-life problems from productivity to sustainability in business, engineering, and sciences. Specialized programming, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, game theory, simulation, and optimization are widely used in data science and business analytics to uncover actionable insights hidden in organizational data. These insights can be used to find patterns in data, identify causes and effects, evaluate future scenarios, find optimal solutions, and make informed decisions in business and politics.
