I thought this call might be of interest to some on the list. Several GOSHers published in a previous issue of Liinc em Revista on citizen science and citizen labs:
The journal Liinc em Revista is inviting submission of articles, subject to double-blind evaluation, for publication in Vol. 14, n. 1 (May 2018). Unpublished articles in Portuguese, Spanish and English are accepted.
This issue will present a dossier on “Platform economy and new collaborative forms of production”, organized by Guest Editors Valeria Arza (Cenit/Steps América Latina, Argentina) and Anne Clinio (Liinc, Brazil).
The editors are looking for articles which explore the implications of new forms of open and collaborative production, in a variety of areas, including:
- Collaborative economy, platform economy and platform cooperativism
- Open Drug Discovery
- Open Seeds
- Open Hardware
- Open software
- Makerspaces and fablabs
- Citizen-driven data production
- Alternative currencies, cryptocurrencies.
The deadline is 31 January 2018. Read more about the call on the Liinc em Revista website.
