While academic publications focus on the research and development space, representing industry insights is an important aspect of the research discourse as well. In our call for expert opinion and perspective pieces, we encourage industry leaders, think tanks and other relevant stakeholders to share their thoughts on the direction of applied research and development in the areas of Information Technology and Computing Sciences such as Data Science, Education and Technology, Digitalization, etc.

Our publication aims to capture these with three basic channels:

  • Expert Opinion articles: These are short articles that point out strengths and weaknesses of specific topics, techniques or results. Such articles should have a suggested minimum word count of 2000 words.
  • Perspectives pieces: These are short articles that discuss the future direction of a specific topic. Such insights should be based on recent literature (at the latest, 3 years ago). The suggested minimum word count is 3500 words.
  • Commentary pieces: These are short articles that discuss reactions to specific publication articles, highlighting specific critiques and viewpoints. The suggested minimum word count is 1000 to 1500 words.

The above articles should be evidence-based and drawn from personal expertise with logical reasoning, backed by properly cited literature, and need not present new research results or findings.
