The next Journal Club, featuring authors Galit Shmueli and Ron Kenett, examines the concept of information quality ‘InfoQ’ as ‘the potential of a data set to achieve a specific (scientific or practical) goal by using a given empirical analysis method’. The paper, ‘On information quality’, is currently available to view here
