CALL FOR AUTHORS: The SAGE Encyclopedia of Big Data


As a phenomenon and discipline developed only in the past several years,
Big Data can be described as the collection, manipulation, and analysis
of massive amounts of data—and the decisions made from that analysis.
According to the /New York Times/, Big Data “is the shorthand label for
the phenomenon, which embraces technology, decision-making and public
policy…. First, it is a bundle of technologies. Second, it is a
potential revolution in measurement. And third, it is a point of view,
or philosophy, about how decisions will be—and perhaps should be—made in
the future.” Moreover, Big Data is affecting and will affect almost all
fields of study, from criminology to philosophy, business, government,
transportation, energy, genetics, medicine, physics, and more. As we
tackle Big Data in this proposed encyclopedia, we objectively report on
the negative effects of loss of privacy, surveillance, and possible
misuse of data in trade-offs for security. On the other hand, it is Big
Data that is helping us to peer into the human genome for invaluable
medical insights, or to reach deep across the universe, discovering
planets much like our own. Our mission with this encyclopedia is to
capture the Big Data phenomenon and make it accessible to students
examining the philosophy of decision-making; exploring the measurement
revolution; studying the technology; and considering the potential, both
for good and ill.

To be published by SAGE Reference in 2016, the encyclopedia features
approximately 850 entries organized A-Z across multiple volumes. The
encyclopedia will be available in a choice of electronic or print
formats. Each 1,000- to 5,000-word article will be signed by the
contributor. The General Editors, who will be reviewing each submission
to the project, are Drs. Laurie A. Schintler and Connie L. McNeely,
George Mason University.  Topics available regardanalytics and
visualization, business and industry, data and information management,
economy and finance, education, environment and climate,
countries/regions, government and organizations, health and medicine,
research, societal issues, and software.

We are currently making assignments with a deadline of September 1, 2014.

If you are interested in contributing to this cutting-edge reference, it
is a unique opportunity to contribute to the contemporary literature,
redefining sociological issues in today’s terms. Moreover, it can be a
notable publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your
publishing credits. SAGE Publications offers an honorarium ranging from
SAGE book credits for smaller articles up to a free set of the printed
product for contributions totaling 10,000 words or more.

The list of available articles is already prepared, and as a next step
we will e-mail you the Article List (Excel file) from which you can
select topics that best fit your expertise and interests. Additionally,
Style and Submission Guidelines and a sample article will be provided
that detail article specifications.

If you would like to contribute to building a truly outstanding
reference with /The SAGE Encyclopedia of Big Data/, please contact me by
the e-mail information below. Please provide your CV or a brief summary
of your academic/publishing credentials in related disciplines.

Thanks very much.
