Deadline extended for submission to special issue of Series A on frontiers in data integration

The deadline for submissions to the Series A special issue on frontiers in data integration has been extended from 31 December to 31 January 2024. 

This issue will focus on innovative methodological developments and applications that bring together data science and statistics, using multiple data sources to advance solutions to problems such as decreasing survey response rates. Topics covered may include, for example:
  • Methodological issues surrounding match rates across data sources using fuzzy matching techniques
  • The production and use of weighting schema to account for data issues around representativeness and attrition
  • The development and diffusion of new or modified statistical techniques required to exploit new data, for example, in relation to the representation of spatial data, dealing with very big data that might require relying on random subsample analysis, or replication studies.
We especially welcome multi-disciplinary perspectives. 

Prospective authors are invited to email their proposals to the Guest Editors, Peisong Han ( and Yajuan Si ( Please note that, in line with the remit of Series A, contributions of a principally technical nature will not be acceptable. The deadline for manuscript submissions is midnight on 31 January 2024. Submissions— which should clearly indicate JRSS-A Frontiers in Data Integration Special Issue in the cover letter—should be made in the usual way, online at ScholarOne Manuscripts (, where further guidance about the structure, length and format of manuscripts may be found. All manuscripts will be peer reviewed in line with the journal’s standard policy. However, in order to produce the special issue in a timely manner, authors will be asked to complete revisions within eight weeks of receiving referee reports.
