The purpose of this Opinion article is to discuss some ideas that might lead to papers that are suitable for publication in the Journal of Informatics and Data Mining. The suggestions include the analysis of citations databases, PI-BETA (Papers Ignored – By Even The Authors), model specification and testing, pre-test bias and data mining, international rankings of academic journals based on citations, international rankings of academic institutions based on citations and other factors, and case studies in numerous disciplines in the sciences and social sciences.
For financial and research support, the author is grateful to the Australian Research Council and the National Science Council of Taiwan.
