[Commlist] IJoC Publishes a Special Section on Computational Communication Science

Tue Sep 10 07:19:57 GMT 2019

International Journal of Communication
Publishes a Special Section on
Computational Communication Science
 As communication and media data have become increasingly available in a
digital format, computational methods have been used to process such digital
trace data to understand the economic, societal, and political implications
of communication. The current computational turn of communication science is
at the maturing stage that will define communication science in the coming
years. This Special Section on Computational Methods for Communication Science:
Toward A Strategic Roadmap brings together nine original papers plus an
editorial introduction on the flourishing field of Computational
Communication Science (CCS). The main goal of this Special Section is to
contribute to the current discussion on CCS by reflecting on the
opportunities and challenges in the field. Thus, these papers provide new
perspectives and valuable insight in two different contexts of CCS research:
1) community-building and the status-quo of the CCS discipline, and 2)
advances in computational methods and their theoretical contributions. These
published articles provide important new driving impulses, an overview of
the most pressing challenges in the context of CCS, and sketch a potential
roadmap for future research in this field.
We invite you to read this new Special Section of 10 articles that published
in the International Journal of Communication on Sunday, September 7, 2019
and available at
