Abstract and Keywords
It is almost a decade since the article “Computational Social Science” was published in Science (Lazer et al., 2009). That article advocated for computational social science as a promising new arrow in the quiver for understanding and enabling social systems. The chapters in this section, and indeed in this book, are a testament to the decade-long trajectory of this movement. The chapters in this section also provide an opportunity to reflect on how computational social science can motivate the development of theories, data, and methods to advance understanding of current and emerging forms of communication and organizational dynamics. This chapter reviews some of the progress made on these dimensions and points to chapters in the section that serve as exemplars.
