Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Digital text management—including digital-born and digitized text-based documents—is one of the most popular but less researched fields of computational linguistics. It has, however, emerged that, in general terms, the use of digital artifacts may also be negative and detrimental to sustainable development. Specifically: (1) both end-users and professionals are involved (professionals at many different levels); (2) both the creation and the modification of these documents generate waste in terms of time, information, human and machine resources; (3) neither end-users nor professionals are aware of these losses, their lack of knowledge, and their inefficient and ineffective working processes; and (4) the effects of chatbots on both the reading comprehension of end-users and on the cohesion of texts should be studied further.

Thanks to recent developments, the entropy and sustainability rate of digital text-based documents can measure these losses. The ultimate goals of these studies and this Special Issue are to gather together papers that deal with the reduction or elimination of the waste generated in text management, open new opportunities in this special field of computational linguistics, find further objective measures that clearly present the problems with which we are faced, and offer solutions to overcome these issues.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
