Applications of ICT in Social Sciences

Edited By 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.

Remodeling the Preparation Phase of Intellectual Property Processes via an Activity Table


Abstract: Companies are faced with difficulties regarding the efficiency of their intellectual property, stemming from both the unsuitable choice of individual (formal or informal) protection mechanisms as well as their sub-optimal use. In this article we present a way in which the activity table technique may be a useful, comprehensive, holistic, but still relatively simple way for intellectual property protection processes’ improvement; allowing us to find bottle-necks and ways to avoid them as well as include a systematic element into processes usually riddled by informality and accompanied by a high level of uncertainty. In doing this, we highlight the steps and considerations that are needed in order to be able to use the activity table.

Keywords: Intellectual property processes; activity table; process modeling; SMEs
