Public Library of Science (PLOS)
PLOS ONE Collection: Science of Stories

Stories have the power to shape our identities and worldviews. They can
be factual or fictional, text-based or visual and can take many
forms—from novels and non-fiction to conspiracy theories, rumors and
disinformation. This Collection includes primary research papers that
propose innovative, data-driven approaches to understanding stories and
their impact, on such topics as the nature of narrative and narrative
thinking, methods to extract stories from datasets and datasets from
stories, the role of narrative in science communication, and the
transformative power of stories.

[Critical commentary on this collection most welcome, at least on
Humanist. --WM]
