Following are top 5 websites which publishes news related with Data Science on daily basis (mostly). These could be seen as must visit websites/webpages for data science and you may want to bookmark to remain up-to-date with what’s happening in the area of data science.

- Data Science/Machine Learning Sub-reddits: Following two sub-reddits are my regular visits and I make sure I have a look at them on daily basis.
- http://reddit.com/r/machinelearning provides links to articles on machine learning
- http://reddit.com/r/datascience provides links to articles on data science
These sub-reddits provide links to various webpages from different websites that includes informative articles as well as news. In addition, you have the flexibility of posting your queries in relation with machine learning and data science topics and hear back multiple answers from the sub-reddits visitors. I would recommend it as MUST-BOOKMARK. I rather access these sub-reddits from my mobile phone using Reddit app. So, if you have not downloaded the reddit app until now, please go ahead and do the same and get started.
- Google Alerts: Setting google alerts for keywords such as “machine learning” and “data science” could help you catchup on data science and machine learning news on daily basis. All you have to do is go to https://www.google.com/alerts and create alerts with those keywords mentioned above. Although they send only 10 alerts in your mail box, you could check out further pages by following the link, “See more results” that could be found within the alert mail. This is one of my regular must-check email in Gmail inbox.

In their words, Data Science Central is the industry’s online resource for big data practitioners. From Analytics to Data Integration to Visualization, Data Science Central provides a community experience that includes a robust editorial platform, social interaction, forum-based technical support, the latest in technology, tools and trends and industry job opportunities.
