Forgive my ignorance, but I am very new to the publishing process in Computer Science. I have some research that I have done involving analyzing data formats used in web-based image processing applications being presented in various IEEE papers. Some are conference papers and some actual IEEE transactions. They all seem to proposing the use of XML or in very few cases JSON as the data formats of choice.
I have read a few IEEE papers done on data traversal speeds involving comparisons made between XML and JSON or one of those two with that of CSVs, but not all three. And I have not found anything that give clear direction for one's reasoning for selecting a particular data format and why. Have I simply missed something? Tis likely, but I wanted to confirm with others first.
I have developed a small proof of concept here, and found some interesting results that I wrote about it here and wanted to see if this is worth trying to publish. Is this a good place to get insights, and share ideas that could be publishable? If so, does anyone have any insight into whether the material I have here is of interest to the scientific computing community? Or is this just a clever IT solution?
I am in the process of refining the paper to include tests done in compiled as well as an interpreted languages. Not to mention the reasoning behind selecting other data formats like CSV or TSV, which appear to much faster to traverse than JSON or XML, but less flexible. JSON appears to be the best choice on average, but more testing is required.
If this is not appropriate, let me know and I will remove this posting. Please also let me know if it is indeed appropriate and if you need more information or less and more of a synopsis.
Thank you in advance.
