Dear colleagues,

Please find attached below the details of the call for papers for the
Quantitative Science Studies (QSS) special issue on “Scientific Knowledge
Graphs and Research Impact Assessment”.

Aim and Scope

In the last decades, there has been a huge increase in the volume of
published scientific articles and related research objects (e.g., data
sets, software packages). This trend gives rise to important challenges.

On the one hand, we have challenges related to the representation and
organisation of such data. We urge for flexible, context-sensitive,
fine-grained, and machine-actionable representations of scholarly knowledge
that at the same time are structured, interlinked, and semantically rich,
such as Scientific Knowledge Graphs (SKGs).

On the other hand, we have challenges related to research impact
assessment. Due to the aforementioned growth in the volume of research
outputs, rigorous approaches to research assessment are now more valuable
than ever. In this context, we urge for reliable and comprehensive metrics
and indicators of the scientific impact and merit of publications, data
sets, research institutions, individual researchers, and other relevant

      assessment of scientific publications, datasets, software, and other
      relevant entities based on scholarly data

      Methods and interfaces for the exploration, retrieval, and
      visualisation of scholarly data focussing on facilitating impact
