- Research in Humanities & Social Sciences
- Publishing in Humanities
- Choosing the Right Journal
- Digital Humanities
Social Sciences and Humanities are human-centric disciplines that study relationships and interactions within a cultural, economic, social, and political environment. Publications in high-impact journals become arduous due to lack of knowledge, and Social Sciences and Humanities fields are no exception to this. In order to simplify the publication journey of researchers from these fields, Enago conducted an introductory session to provide insights into the key publishing aspects. We also discussed the significance of open access publishing in these disciplines along with the rapidly growing field of Digital Humanities.
Researchers will have increased knowledge about the following:
- How to get started with your research study?
- How to choose the right journal?
- An overview of the publication cycle
- Open access publishing in humanities and social sciences
- What is Digital Humanities?
