Data Visualization is an increasingly important research area due to its wide range of applications in many disciplines. Visualizations provide a visual overview in order to explore, analyze, and present something often difficult to understand. In the field of data science, librarians have emerged to help address this challenge. In this Special Issue of the Journal of eScience Librarianship, to be published December 15, 2017, the editors are looking for articles on how librarians are telling stories, using tools, or creating best practices in data visualization. All submissions are subject to peer-review based on article type. The issue will have a Guest Editor: Jian Qin, Syracuse University, and will include Expert Commentary from Sally Gore, University of Massachusetts Medical School.
The submission deadline is August 1, 2017, with acceptance notification on September 15. Final manuscripts are due November 1. For questions, contact Regina Raboin, Editor.
