Deadline extension for the QualiChain Special Issue

The QualiChain project is organising a special issue on Blockchain-Based Decentralised Solutions for Learner Empowerment, Education Reengineering and Public Sector Transformation. The special issue will be published in the new Elsevier journal Blockchain: Research and Applications. This is a peer reviewed, open access journal. Authors do not have to pay any open access publication fee.

The submission deadline has been extended to February 28, 2022 (Final deadline).

This special issue explores how learner empowerment, education reengineering and public sector transformation can be achieved via blockchain-based decentralised solutions. These solutions cover a wide range of applications within education and employment, including the storing, sharing and verification of education and employment qualifications. Particular emphasis is given on the assessment of the potential of blockchain technology, algorithmic techniques and computational intelligence for disrupting the domain of public education, as well as its interfaces with private education, the labour market, public sector administrative procedures and the wider socio-economic developments.
