Springer Nature Webinars: Visibilidade Internacional em Ciências Humanas e Sociais
Publicado em : 15/04/2017
Em seminário gratuito transmitido ao vivo pela internet, Profa. Silvia Kohler debate a internacionalização das ciências humanas no Brasil
The Human and Social Sciences (HSS) have a number of features that make them unique in the world of scientific publishing. In contrast to other areas, which deal with universal research objects, the HSS deal with human beings, who vary considerably across social contexts: the effects of their individual and collective histories, habits, ethnicities and cultures make them unique. This poses a challenge to the traditional model of scientific publishing, originally developed by (and for) the Natural and Biomedical Sciences.
Professor Silvia Koller, one of the most prominent Psychology researchers in Latin America, will discuss the difficulties that HSS researchers from the Global South face with regard to publishing and gaining international visibility. Koller argues that these include the domination of the Northern Hemisphere over the scientific and editorial policies that prevail around the world, and proposes practical steps to bridge the divide between science produced and published in the North and the South.
