Database Research

My first research paper, from my doctoral research, has been published and available online 18 December 2014. It is currently an article in press, uncorrected proof. Articles in Press do not have all bibliographic details available yet. The full type set article will be available soon.

The paper is entitled The Usage of Best Practices and Procedures in the Database Community published on ScienceDirect as part of the Journal Information Systems Read More

There is an audio slides presentation introducing the paper.

Databases: Their Creation, Management and Utilization

Information systems are the software and hardware systems that support data-intensive applications. The journal Information Systems publishes articles concerning the design and implementation of languages, data models, process models, algorithms, software and hardware for information systems.

Subject areas include data management issues as presented in the principal international database conferences (e.g. ACM SIGMOD, ACM PODS, VLDB, ICDE and ICDT/EDBT) as well as data-related issues from the fields of data mining, information retrieval, internet and cloud data management, web semantics, visual and audio information systems, scientific computing, and organisational behaviour.
