big data & societycover FINALAs a member of the editorial team, I am pleased to join my colleagues in introducing the first volume of Big Data & Society. It is now available at

This new open access journal was launched earlier this year with the aim to provide a scholarly venue for exploring this emerging field of practice. The inaugural volume feature many interesting articles and thought provoking commentaries on what is “Big” about “Big Data?” Is there any substance behind all of the grand claims?

For more information about this first volume, check out the brief video blog by Evelyn Ruppert, the Journal’s Founding Editor. In the video she discusses the aims of the Journal and introduces the content of the first volume.
