About MJBDSC

The journal shall publish up to date and original articles in all aspects of ‘Big Data and Smart City’ for the benefit of research scholars, policymakers and practitioners in these areas. The Editorial Board is committed to welcome all subjects, themes, areas in which the research and scholarships are underrepresented, include all the related issues, challenges which are being confronted in this part of the world and in the rest of the world. The journal shall publish peer-reviewed articles, research notes, features, short articles, special issues, and book reviews. Contributions of high technical merit are to span the breadth of engineering disciplines. Due to the fact that big data and smart city go hand-in-hand, information security, data analytics, data mining, computing, sensor networks, data privacy, etc. has become inevitable requirement not only for personal safety but also for assuring the sustainability of the city.
