Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- This submission complies with guidance found in the Author Guidelines.
BriefsShorter papers (1000-3000 words) introducing new data, ideas, or concepts which may be of interest to other researchers working in the field of human computation. If a new dataset or tool is being presented, analysis and commentary should be minimal and concise.
ResearchOriginal scholarly research in the field of human computation, including empirical analysis, mathematical modeling, and theoretical advances. Research articles (4000-9000 words) should be substantive, detailed, and rigorous. They might discuss existing works (and should be exhaustively cited), but their primary purpose is to advance novel ideas in the field of human computation.
SurveysA paper (4000-9000 words) that summarizes and organizes recent research results in a manner that integrates and adds understanding to work in the field or sub-area of interest. A survey article emphasizes the classification of existing work, developing a perspective on the area, and evaluating trends.
OpinionsOpinion pieces are intended to allows authors to present topics for discussion (e.g., related to common themes or methodologies) or calls for research on a particular topic. These pieces are shorter (2000-5000 words), but must be self-contained and, when relevant, discuss technical details surrounding the topic presented.
ReviewsIncludes reviews of already published books, anthologies, or monographs in the field of human computation. This should generally be shorter (2000-5000 words) than research articles, and constitute an original critical examination of a particular already published work (either in Human Computation or elsewhere). They should include a general discussion of the concepts of the work being reviewed, as well as high-quality evaluation.
