Designs for Social Science Study of Globalized Future Scenarios
Francisco Bernete, Olivia Velarde

This paper is based on the theoretical and methodological developments produced in "Social production of communication and social reproduction in the age of globalization.” It presents new content analysis models, based on logical and systemic methodologies. It describes how these designs have been applied to the analysis of the content of scientific and technical publications, which operate on the relationships between "globalization" and social applications of ICTs. Using these methodologies, the set of "future scenarios" that are shaped by the social uses of information and knowledge, as conceived in academic and professional milieus, has been identified. The paper makes the models and protocols that were tested in this research available to the scientific community.
