Social Science Conference – Call for papers

Full paper Guidline

Social science is needed to understand and influence how humans act. Many social science conferences address the important topics as; from reducing poverty to promoting gender equality; they are needed to face challenges such as climate change, which are as much social as natural. Hence, to face current and future challenges and effectively address global and local problems, more and better social science is vital. To cope, capacity must be built, particularly in the regions where social problems are most acute and social science is most anemic.

The history of the social sciences and social science researches has origin in the common stock of western philosophy and shares various precursors, but began most intentionally in the early 19th century with the positivist philosophy of science. Since the mid-20th century, the term “social science” has come to refer more generally, not just to sociology, but to all those disciplines which analyze society and culture; from anthropology to linguistics to media studies.

Around the start of the 20th century, with the findings on social science researches enlightenment philosophy was challenged in various quarters. After the use of classical theories since the end of the scientific revolution, various fields substituted mathematics studies for experimental studies and examining equations to build a theoretical structure. The development of social science sub fields became very quantitative in methodology. Conversely, the interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary nature of scientific inquiry into human behavior and social and environmental factors affecting it made many of the natural sciences interested in some aspects of social science methodology. Examples of boundary blurring include emerging disciplines like social studies of medicine, sociobiology, neurophysiology, and bio economics and the history and sociology of science. Increasingly, quantitative and qualitative methods are being integrated in the study of human action and its implications and consequences. In the first half of the 20th century, statistics became a free-standing discipline of applied mathematics. Statistical methods were used confidently.

The International Conference on Social Science examines the nature of disciplinary practices, and the interdisciplinary practices that arise in the context of ‘real world’ applications. The focus of papers ranges from the finely grained and empirical (research practices and results exemplifying one or more disciplines), to wide-ranging multidisciplinary and trans- disciplinary practices, to perspectives on knowledge and method.
