On September 17th, 2022, a seminar on the development of Journal of Data Science was successfully held.

The event brought together many RUC school leaders, including WANG Yi, Vice President of the university; LIN Chen, Director of Research Office for Sciences and Technology; GUAN Xiaobin, Vice- Director of Research Office for Sciences and Technology; WANG Xiaojun, Dean of School of Statistics; ZHANG Bo, the former editor of the journal; and LI Jingping, Associate Dean of School of Statistics.

Many distinguished scholars also attended the seminar. Among them were TIAN Lili, the editor of Statistical Methods in Medical Research and a Professor from State University of New York at Buffalo; WAND Lan, the editor of The Annals of Statistics and a professor from university of Miami USA.; XIE Bangchang, the former editor of Journal of Data Science and professor ZHAO Hongyu from Yale University.

In his opening speech, WANG Yi extended his warm welcome to all the experts from across the globe on behalf of the university. WANG then noted that the Journal of Data Science, co-hosted by the School of Statistics and the Center for Applied Statistics since 2019, enjoyed a good reputation in data science. “The development of academic journals constitutes a significant component of RUC’s drive to make its Statistics a “world-class” discipline. Currently, not a single world-class journal in the field of Statistics is hosted by China. In this regard, the Journal of Data Science is expected to fill the gap.” added Wang.

At the seminar, YAN Jun elaborated on the current state of the journal, including the composition of the Editorial Board, the specialties, columns and focus of the journal. Also, the editor mentioned the challenges facing the journal in the future.

XIE Bangchang, TIAN Lili, ZHAO Hongyu, WANG Lan, ZHANG Bo, LIN Chen and GUAN Xiaobin also shared their opinion on the development of the journal, resulting in many valuable suggestions concerning the positioning of the journal, the review process of the journal, and the establishment of Senior AE and Advisory Board.

Toward the end of the seminar, WANG Xiaojun expressed his gratitude to the contributions of all editors and the suggestions from the participants. “The School of Statistics will spare no efforts to boost the development of the journal, making it a premium platform to show results of data science research in China.” concluded professor WANG.
