Springer launches new open access journal with Korean research society

Human-centric Computing and Information Sciences will join the SpringerOpen portfolio

Beginning in June 2011, Springer will launch a new open access journal Human-centric Computing and Information Sciences (HCIS). As part of the SpringerOpen portfolio, it will be fully sponsored by the Korea-based Future Technology Research Association International (FTRA).
Human-centric Computing and Information Sciences is one of the official international journals of the FTRA. The journal covers the multifaceted aspects of human-centric computing technology and information sciences with its convergence strategies. The goal of this interdisciplinary journal is to bring together researchers from academia and industry as well as practitioners to share ideas, problems and solutions from this field.
“It is a great pleasure for us to collaborate with Springer in the publication of HCIS. With so many state-of-the-art technologies related to human-centric computing, we have considered how best to publish leading research work that is accessible to the widest possible audience. With this challenge in mind, we have signed an agreement with Springer to publish HCIS as an open access journal starting in mid-2011. Our journal will benefit from Springer’s wide distribution channels and academic publishing expertise,” said Professor James J. (Jong Hyuk) Park of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Seoul National University of Science and Technology.
Mark de Jongh, Senior Publishing Editor and coordinator of the Publishing program at Springer Korea, said: “We are very enthusiastic about the new open access journal Human-centric Computing and Information Sciences. The journal will not only focus on cutting-edge research in the growing field of human-computer interaction, but will also be a valuable addition to Springer’s Korean publishing program.” Springer currently co-publishes 36 society journals in English in Korea.
As an open access journal, all research results from HCIS will be freely available online.

    Aims and Scope


    In Human-centric Computing and Information Sciences (HCIS), KIPS-CSWRG plans to publish high quality papers which cover the various theories and practical applications related to human-centric computing and information sciences. The published papers are expected to present results of significant value to solve the various problems with application services and other problems which are within the scope of HCIS. In addition, we expect they will trigger further related research and technological improvements relevant to our future lives.

    Human-centric Computing and Information Sciences stands for the continuously evolving and converging information technologies, including:

    • Human-computer interaction and User-centered Design
    • Social computing and social intelligence
    • Ubiquitous computing and mobile systems
    • Gaming and Semantic Systems
    • Computer-assisted Learning and Cognition
    • Privacy, Security and trust management
    • Information Visualization and Visual Analytics
    • Foundations of Information Science, such as Information Theory, AI, and Soft Computing
    • Implementations and Information Technology
    • Applications with Image Processing, Computer Vision Systems, Language and Search Engine Design, etc.

    These are the hot topics that will satisfy the ever-changing needs of a world-wide audience. In approximately 5 to 10 years the editors plan to include new emerging topics to the journal scope, in order to make the journal reflect future generations' IT related human-centric computing and information sciences.
