Applications of ICT in Social Sciences

Biljana Mileva Boshkoska

In social sciences the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) is an ever growing phenomenon. Emanating from the need of knowledge about society and economy, we are constantly striving to create ideas and methods for a better use of information. This study analyses different practices such as business process management, business process modelling or relationship marketing. It also discusses the use of ICT in a variety of examples taken from different fields such as education, web clipping, public safety, tactic knowledge, or protection of intellectual property and offers an outline of state-of-the-art applications of ICT in social sciences.

A Research Voucher Case Study: Web Clipping


Abstract: Web clipping deals with the acquisition of text and graphic components, and from web pages and their efficient display on a hand-held web appliance. Many such solutions already exist on the market. While they are mostly too expensive or do not provide desired functionality there is strong motivation to develop such solutions. The project is conducted in collaboration with company that manages the leading IT portal in Slovenia and produces news media. Our aim was to develop a web solution for data acquisition, to find out where, when and in what form information appears on the web and to detect user response. Process automation enables the company to collect data fast and effectively which will be crucial for future editorial and business decisions. In this paper we present an approach and implemented solutions that provide a better flexibility to users in selecting, retrieving, extracting and tracking information in publicly available publications on the web.
