Special Issue "ICT Enhanced Social Sciences and Humanities"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 October 2020.
Interests: digital infrastructures; Science 2.0; scientometrics; data interoperability
We invite contributions to a Special Issue that will cover various aspects of SSH (Social Sciences and Humanities) research enhanced by modern information-communication technologies (ICT). ICT tools for SSH researchers already exist, such as research-oriented social networking sites and tools to support scientific research, to manage labs and data, and to enable better communication. These tools could change the way SSH researchers carry out research, collaborate, and disseminate and evaluate research outputs. This Special Issue should include papers dealing with ICT-based methodologies and algorithms for SSH research, digital infrastructures and tools for doing research, writing, reviewing, publishing and assessing research, FAIR principles, the open science paradigm, data/publication/software source code repositories, electronic laboratory notebooks, CRIS systems, and publication and citation databases.
Papers describing original work in any of the four areas listed below are invited:
- Tools, algorithms, and techniques for performing SSH research;
- Tools and platforms for scientific collaboration;
- Tools, guidelines, and paradigms for dissemination of SSH research objects;
- ICT-enhanced management, monitoring, and evaluation of SSH.
This Special Issue will contain extended versions of selected papers presented at the ICTeSSH 2020 Conference (https://ictessh.uns.ac.rs/) held in Amsterdam, Netherlands, 29 June–01 July 2020.
