More on this journal...
The statement above provides the key differentiation of our journal from others and its unique value proposition. IJSHC diffuses knowledge in horizontal and vertical pillars
- On the one hand, we aim to investigate the social and humanistic computing issues in different contexts as illustrated by the human activities eg: living, science, health, culture, education, knowledge, learning, commerce, business, education, construction, etc.
- On the other hand we promote in horizontal lines the different views of social computing by supporting a scientific debate with the participation of the industry for the new kinds of human- and social-centric systems.
IJSHC aims to establish value-adding knowledge transfer and personal development channels in three distinctive areas: Academia, Industry and Government, which summarise the three pillars where a new scientific publication can play a significant role.Contents
IJSHC publishes original research papers providing significant results, and also short communications about innovative ideas and news, announcements and reviews regarding the topics of the journal.
