Suggest a Definition for the Data & Analytics Dictionary

The Data and Analytics Dictionary

The Data & Analytics Dictionary is a growing resource covering topics from Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Analytics to Data Governance, Data Strategy and Data Architecture. Best of all, it is entirely free. While The Dictionary is predominantly my own work, we are now also happy to accept submissions for new definitions via the form below. These will be acknowledged as per the example of Data Curation.

  • Submissions will be subject to editorial review, may be abridged or otherwise modified and are not guaranteed to be accepted.
  • Submissions may be merged with other submissions on the same topic, with joint acknowledgement.
  • If you want to submit more than one definition, please fill in one form for each of these and submit individually.
  • Submissions will not in general appear immediately in The Dictionary, but will be part of a larger release containing a number of new definitions.
