David Taniar is the founding editor-in-chief of three SCI-E journals. Prof Taniar will discuss some of the insights on getting papers accepted (and rejected) for publications in SCI-E indexed journals. This will include not only the process and the quality of papers, but more importantly the view from the editor's side which is often unknown by researchers who submitted the papers.
David Taniar is recognized for significant contributions in database query processing in (i) mobile/spatial databases, and (ii) parallel databases. His primary contribution is to make access pattern to these databases more efficient.
