The National Institute of Science and Technology of Timor-Leste (INCT) is pleased to announce the call for papers for the second number of the Journal of Science and Technology of Timor-Leste.
For the year 2023, the INCT Journal will have as its theme Pathways Towards a Science, Innovation and Technology Policy in Timor-Leste, and is hereby inviting all researchers, professors, scientists and interested parties to submit articles and reviews on this theme until June 31, 2023, to the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through the theme Pathways to a Science, Innovation and Technology Policy in Timor-Leste, the researcher is invited to present, analyze and reflect on theoretical and practical situations that point paths to the development of a science, innovation and technology policy based on Timor-Leste’s reality, but never neglecting perspectives of concrete cases from other countries and international realities of science, innovation and technology. The aim is to present distinct visions about the possible paths for science in Timor-Leste (and in the world), and the possible definitions and redefinitions around a science, innovation and technology policy in the country. Some sub-themes can be explored, such as:
- What policies for science, innovation and technology are in Timor-Leste?
- The paths of science in the world and Timor-Leste – definitions and redefinitions around a policy for science, innovation and technology.
- General/specific pathways for exact sciences, social sciences and humanities and innovation and technology in Timor-Leste and the world;
- Copyrights, licenses, open data and open science, indexing, among others;
- National and international strategic partnerships to achieve a science, innovation and technology policy;
- The major challenges for science and scientific research in higher education.
- Funding for science, technology and innovation – main challenges;
- Scientific research in Timor-Leste: main problems/challenges and proposals for improvement/development of scientific research quality;
- The Path of Governmental actions around science, technology and innovation;
- The relationship of science, innovation and technology policy in Timor-Leste with the challenges of the Timor-Leste Strategic Development Plan 2011-2030 (NSDP) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN);
- The relationship of the science, innovation and technology policy in Timor-Leste with the United Nations International Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Health Organization (WHO);
