DATA SCIENCE TECHNIQUES AND ALGORITHMS FOR LITERATURE REVIEWS AND META-ANALYSES

 

The objective of this CFP is to identify how new methodologies based on the development of technology help to carry out reviews of the literature and meta-analyses for communication especially focused on, although not limited to, online consumer behavior.

 

Technological development is favoring the review of existing methodologies. In this way, bibliometric analysis, literature reviews and meta-analyses methodologies can now be extended thanks to the use of algorithms for data extraction and analysis of large amounts of data. Algorithms can have varied functionalities; for example, Topic modeling is a semi-automatic algorithm that allows identifying clusters that are called topics. In this way, an area of ??analysis can be understood semi-automatically thanks to the use of algorithms.

Therefore, authors are invited to send articles that use:

- Algorithms for the extraction and analysis of bibliometric data.

- Big data of online consumer behavior or other areas of communication.

- Bibliometric analyses of online consumer behavior or other areas of communication.

- Meta-analyses supported by large amounts of data on online consumer behavior or other areas of communication.

- Meta-analyses that use algorithms for data analysis.

- Articles on good practices in the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to carry out literature reviews.

- Development of new techniques and algorithms applicable to literature reviews.

- Case studies on literature reviews.

- Other multidisciplinary approaches that are applicable to literature reviews in the area of ??online consumer behavior or communication.

This CFP is linked, but not limited, to CBO2022 (Consumer Behavior Online) International Conference.

 

Open submission: 30 September 2022

Close submission: 15 December 2022

Acceptance on a rolling basis.

COMPUTER-GENERATED IMAGERY (CGI) PRODUCTION AND VISUALIZATION TECHNIQUES AND THEIR INFLUENCE ON COMMUNICATION

Review of Communication Research invites the submission of systematic reviews and meta-analyses that explore the influence of CGI Production and Visualization Techniques on Communication. CGI production and visualization techniques have influenced the traditional media, making communication processes evolve toward new realities. We welcome papers that include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

  • Virtual and augmented reality experiences
  • CGI and social media
  • Storytelling techniques, transmedia, crossmedia, videogames, etc.
  • CGI visual effects on film productions
  • CGI and virtual education
  • Telepresence on live events

Authors should submit their manuscripts through the RCR editorial management system: www.rcommunicationr.org

Paper proposals, questions, and comments should be addressed to Roi Méndez (roi.mendez@usc.es) cc editor@rcommunicationr.org

 Deadline: March 31th, 2022

EMPATHY AND PROSOCIAL OUTCOMES IN COMMUNICATION AND MEDIA TECHNOLOGIES

Media technologies such as computer games, multi-user environments, virtual and augmented realities have been studied as tools to promote positive outcomes by building empathy towards others and increasing prosocial attitudes and behaviours. We welcome papers that include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

  • Perspective-taking and empathy
  • Influence of communication technologies on prosocial outcomes
  • Effects of media technologies on attitudes towards outgroups
  • Empathy and communication and media technologies
  • Telepresence and prosocial behaviour
  • Underlying processes of media influence on prosocial outcomes
  • Mediating factors between technology and empathy

The manuscript submission deadline is June 1st, 2022.

Authors should submit their manuscripts through the RCR editorial management system: www.rcommunicationr.org

Paper proposals, questions, and comments should be addressed to Benjamin Li Junting (benjyli@ntu.edu.sg) cc to editor@rcommunicationr.org.

Call for Papers or Proposals: EMOTION IN HEALTH COMMUNICATION

Review of Communication Research invites the submission of literature reviews and meta-analyses that focus on the role played by emotion in health communication.

Emotions are an integral facet of the human experience: Their influence is felt in everything we do, from determining our individual preferences and connecting with others to making everyday decisions about the actions we take. As complex states that implicate a host of “perceptual, cognitive, physiological, and motivational systems,” emotions can facilitate or impeded health-related behaviors (Dillard & Nabi, 2006, p. 132). Indeed, emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, hope, disgust, surprise, joy, and sadness have been shown to influence risk assessment and subsequent decision-making in a variety of contexts, including smoking, physical activity, vaccination, dietary behaviour, sleep deprivation, end-of-life care, and risky sexual practices.

In the past few decades, researchers have made great empirical and theoretical strides in gaining a better understanding of the role played by emotions in health communication, however, individual studies remain scattered across various disciplines, often using different terms for the same essential concepts. Although this reality makes it more difficult to identify crucial research strands, it also provides abundant opportunities to develop and extend the ways we think about emotion in health communication through systematic reviews and meta-analyses. To make significant advances in this area, we invite submissions that review and reflect (systematic reviews, narrative literature reviews, state-of-the-literature reviews, and meta-analyses) on the accumulated knowledge on the topic of emotion in health communication.   

Possible areas and issues to be covered:

  • Anticipated emotions in health
  • Emotion-focused interventions
  • Emotional support
  • Emotion and well-being
  • Emotion and health misinformation
  • Emotion and health technologies
  • Management and regulation of emotions
  • Emotion and information-seeking/avoidance
  • Emotion appraisals regarding risk
  • The eliciting circumstances of each emotion
  • Universals and cultural differences in the experience of emotions
  • Methodological questions in the study of emotion in health communication
  • Underlying mechanisms of emotional influence

The manuscript submission deadline is June 1st, 2022.

Authors should submit their manuscripts through the RCR editorial management system: www.rcommunicationr.org

Paper proposals, questions, and comments should be addressed to Nathan Walter (nathan.walter@northwestern.edu) and Jiyoung Lee (jlee284@ua.edu), cc to editor@rcommunicationr.org.
