Two great revolutions are believed to prompt the rise of the so-called Social Sciences – the French Democratic Revolution and the Industrial Revolution. These events shattered European culture so profoundly that it was impossible for 18th and 19th-century thinkers to ignore them. The first caused the collapse of the feudal system and left concepts such as wealth, authority, status and sovereignty to be redefined. At the same time, the latter changed the means of production to such an extent that suddenly, the whole organization of society was rearranged. It was the time when the main tree of Philosophy was separated into hundreds of scientific branches. There was a great need for specialization and differentiation of knowledge.
Until the end of the 18th century, the main ideas of economics, political science, anthropology, and sociology were formed. By the end of the 19th century, the main body of Social Sciences was already established into distinctive disciplines. Thereby, the 20th century could be seen, along with many other tendencies, as the period of Social Science.
Nowadays, it is impossible not to consider the idea of society as the main factor when dealing with whichever scientific field chooses. But through the separation of the holistic philosophical systems, we have reached dangerous levels of alienation among the different disciplines of knowledge. The human mind cannot grasp the totality of scientific work today. However, we are witnessing a new revolution – the World Wide Web Revolution. Social networks, Search engines, cloud-based data servers, almost immediate transfer of information, super-fast computational methods, and unimaginable statistics all made it possible for us to restore the union of the numerous disciplines. We are already living in unprecedented interconnection. The entire planet is in cultural, informational, and industrial interdependence. There is a need for a scientific reunion once again. These are the ages of interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary studies.
SWS International Scientific Conference on Social Sciences (ISCSS) aims to bring together leading international academic scholars and researchers to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of contemporary social sciences. We also aim to provide a first-class interdisciplinary platform by using different perspectives, approaches, and research methods, which will ensure scientific progress beyond the scope of one particular research area.
SWS International Scientific Conference on Social Sciences (ISCSS) scope comprises a broad selection of presentations, studies, and research papers in the main branches of Social Sciences. It focuses on human behaviour and society - Political Sciences, Law, Economics and Finance, Anthropology, Psychology, Sociology, Education, Media, Library Science, Human Geography, Digital Transformations, Healthcare, Urban Studies, Planning and Development.
All submitted manuscripts will pass a peer review process (type double-blind, with 2 or 3 independent reviewers) under strict criteria, selected specifically for the conference, which guarantees the independent and transparent process between authors and reviewers. The SWS International Scientific Committee is the only competent authority in deciding on the selection or rejection of the manuscripts submitted to the conferences. There is no guarantee that your paper will be accepted - it depends only on the evaluations of the independent peer-reviewers (more info)
