Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

Online First articles are published online here, before they appear in a journal issue. Online First articles are fully citeable, complete with a DOI. They can be cited, read, and downloaded. Online First articles are published as Open Access (OA) articles to make the latest research available as early as possible.

Open AccessArticles marked with this Open Access icon are Online First articles. They are freely available and openly accessible to all without any restriction except the ones stated in their respective CC licenses.

  • Applying Decision Trees on Road Traffic Accident Data for Predicting Survival Chance of Patients   Order a copy of this article
    by Parham Porouhan 
    Abstract: The main objective of this study is to generate decision tree (DT) models/graphs (i.e., a type of supervised machine learning (ML) research method) through RapidMiner Studio (i.e., a popular visual platform for predictive analytics). The dataset used in the study contains attributes regarding the car accidents such as 'gender', 'casualty class', 'age group' and 'type of vehicle'. These are important features to decide whether the 'survival chance' of traffic accident patients would be 'high' or 'low'. Therefore, our goal is to apply 'DTs' for predicting the 'survival attribute' with the purpose of identifying high risk groups within the dataset. The resulting 'DTs' show that whenever the attribute 'gender' has the value 'male', and the attribute 'casualty class' has the value 'passenger', and the attribute 'gender' has the value 'male', and the attribute 'age group' has the value 'teenager'; then the 'survival chance' of the traffic/accident patient would be extremely 'low'.
    Keywords: data mining; supervised machine learning; RapidMiner studio; decision tree; DT; Bayesian networks; predictive analytics; accident risk factors; survival rate.
