The Journal of Database Management (JDM) publishes original research on all aspects of database management, systems analysis and design, and software engineering. The primary mission of JDM is to be instrumental in the improvement and development of theory and practice related to information technology and management of information resources. The journal is targeted at both academic researchers and practicing IT professionals.

Topics Covered

The Journal of Database Management (JDM) publishes three types of rigorous and high quality articles: research articles, research notes, and research reviews. Research articles are full innovative findings that make substantial theoretical and empirical contributions to knowledge in the field by using various theoretical and methodological approaches. Research notes are novel and complete but not as comprehensive as full research articles; they include exploratory studies and methodological articles. Research reviews are insightful and carefully crafted articles that conceptualize research areas, synthesize previous innovative findings, advance the understanding of the field, and identify and develop future research directions. Authors are welcome to submit manuscripts that qualify for any of the three categories.

Topics of interest to the journal include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

  • Agile systems development
  • Bio-informatics
  • Cognitive modeling
  • Component engineering
  • Conceptual modeling
  • Data quality
  • Data warehousing and data mining
