The Journal of Big Data and Smart City will provide a platform for Middle East College faculty and other members of the academic community to share their research, and innovative ideas in this field. Many a time, faculty or student papers, dissertations or research grant proposals, projects, and research ideas are not adequately disseminated amongst the research community due to limited resources, or public platforms. This journal intends to fill this gap by providing a platform for students, faculty members, designers, developer and other participants belonging to this research community to share their ideas, new projects, and research initiatives. In addition, this journal is a response to the current limited provision of academic journals in the fields of Big Data and Smart City. Moreover, there is always a demand for quick processing of submitted publications so that researchers can receive credit for their innovative ideas. The Advisory Board of this Journal will follow a blind peer review process after completing technical checks of the quality of paper, ethical procedures, and so on.
