Since 2008, VLDB uses PVLDB, a scholarly journal for disseminating the papers accepted in VLDB. PVLDB is distinguished by a monthly submission process with rapid reviews. PVLDB issues are published regularly throughout the year. The Associate Editors of a specific edition of VLDB are responsible along with the PC chairs to provide constructive guidance and management of the review process for selecting papers for PVLDB.  

The PC chairs hand pick a set of Associate Editors for an edition of VLDB/PVLDB. For VLDB 2022, 32 Associate Editors were selected globally by the PC chairs to guide and manage the review process that lasted around 1.4 years. Five of them were awarded the Distinguished Associated Editor Award. A/P Bhowmick is the only Associate Editor from Asia to receive the award.
