Call for Papers titled “Science of Stories”

by Aurelia Chaise

I would like to make you aware of an interdisciplinary Call for Papers titled “Science of Stories” that I am co-editing for the multidisciplinary, open-access journal PLOS ONE.

We encourage submissions on:

  • exploring the nature of narrative and narrative thinking in texts and other media (including social media);
  • proposing methods to extract stories from datasets and vice versa;
  • analyzing how narratives are transformed and how they cooperate or compete with each other as they move through time and space;
  • communicating data-rich narratives to the public.

The leading Guest Editors for this project are Peter Dodds, Mirta Galesic, Mohit Iyyer and Matthew Jockers. The accepted papers will form a PLOS Collection, to be published in late autumn 2019. Contributions should be submitted by 01 June 2019.

The journal PLOS ONE is published by the Public Library of Science (PLOS), a non-profit open access publisher and advocacy organization and selects submissions for scientific rigour rather than perceived impact. To promote openness and transparency in research, PLOS mandates all data underlying the results of each paper be made openly available upon publication.

We are particularly keen on contributing to transparency and reproducibility in science with this Call for Papers and are hence asking all authors to make source code associated with their submissions openly available.
