How can academic journals in foresight / futures studies / anticipation engage new audiences and play a role in futures literacy? As part of the UNESCO Futures Literacy Summit, JFS is hosting this webinar. 

Futures Literacy is all about reaching new groups of people with dynamic thinking about the future that stimulates action for our common futures. What does this mean for the academic journal?

Today, we have approximately 8 academic journals in the futures studies space. It is a rich ecosystem of scholarship that is driving new paradigms needed for our 21st century challenges. However, many are behind expensive paywalls, and many articles will only reach a limited group of specialists, rather than have broader social impacts.

At the same time the popularity of futures has soared. How can we tap this interest and connect it with the scientific and specialist knowledges from futures journals? 
  • Learn about some of the experiments the Journal of Futures Studies (JFS) has done over the last few years
  • Learn about the "JFS Community Hub" idea where futures researchers and authors can engage with new groups and audiences 
Find out how you can be a part of these developments.

Speakers include:

Dr. Huan-Chao Keh (葛煥昭 博士), President of Tamkang University

Dr. Jose Ramos (Senior Consulting Editor, JFS)

Abril Chimal (Technical Editor, Perspectives, JFS)

Dr. John Sweeney (World Futures Review) 


Who We Are

The Journal of Futures Studies is a publication of Tamkang University, Taiwan, supported by the Graduate Institute of Futures Studies.

The Journal of Futures Studies is a globally-oriented, trans-disciplinary refereed journal. Its mission is to develop high-quality, futures-oriented research and thinking based on the evolving knowledge base of Futures Studies.

JFS will highlight recent and upcoming editions and news from the journal, with a view toward making it easy for you to both access articles and essays as well as share them with your colleagues and networks. JFS aims to bring you:

    Epistemologically focused studies on the construction of possible, probable and preferable futures,
    Emerging methodologies in futures studies, including integrated, layered, and critical approaches, as well as empirical, interpretive or action-learning based approaches,
    Applied Futures (for example, case studies in the use of futures thinking for organizational transformation),
    Alternative futures of particular subjects (for example, genetics, nano-technology, utopianism, social movements, or particular areas, such as East Asia).

The editors invite contributors in the areas of foresight, forecasting, long-range planning, visioning and other related areas. Find out about submitting an article.
