Int. J. on Software Tools for Technology Transfer -
Special Section on Scientific Workflows


Special Section on Scientific Workflows

In recent years, numerous software systems have been developed specifically to support the management of scientific processes and workflows. Research in this comparatively new field is evolving in many different ways.

Software Tools for Technology Transfer is a respected Springer journal that emphasises the role of software in transferring technical advances to a wider academic and industrial audience. The journal is publishing a special section on scientific workflows. The target readership for this is researchers and practitioners in all scientific applications who can benefit from advances in workflow tools and techniques.

Topics of interest on scientific workflows include (but are not limited to):

Original papers on these or closely related topics are solicited for this Special Section. Where a paper has previously been published in conference form (e.g. the ISoLA track on scientific workflows), the journal submission must demonstrate significant new contributions or expositions.
