The aim of this contribution is to present some recent developments of the So.Re.Com. “A.S. de Rosa” @-Library, already presented in previous publications (de Rosa, 2014, 2015a, 2015,b., 2018, 2019; de Rosa et Al ,2016, 2017, 2018a, 2018,b) as multi-purpose web-platform for documentation, training and networking in the supra-disciplinary field of Social Representations and Communication.

Among the many cross-thematic areas of supra-disciplinary interest (environment, health, education, science and technology, communication, politics, economics, etc.) with the high societal impact, the “migration studies” represent a relevant field of transversal knowledge across social sciences developed by the researchers specifically working in “Social Representations and Communication” and by social scientists inspired by other theories and disciplinary fields beyond social psychology.

There is a huge literature and documentation aimed at investigating and understanding the complex phenomenon of “migration” on factual elements, that characterise the dynamic of “pull” and “push” factors in the migratory flows in the history, alternating emigration/immigration from/towards countries and world regions or even concurrent migratory flows from the same countries, and the impact with host communities.

However in the multi-media communication system of our contemporary society this factual knowledge is almost obscured by “polarised” social representations connoted by opposite attitudes pro-against immigration and perceived as a contemporary emergency due to the “fear” or the “empathy” toward the immigrants depicted as “invaders”, “potential terrorist”, “threat to the employment opportunities of the citizens of their sovereign country”…. or as “victims”, “support for the economy of the country” as workers in fields that no longer interest native citizens, “refugees” who escape from war or natural disasters….The manipulation of emotions induced in the citizens by political leaders or other influential authorities according to their different ideological positions and identity affiliations has a wide “echo chamber” in the social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YoutTube….). However , at some extent, the rethorical device of these polarised views also organise the semantic dictionnaire of the policies documents and scientific literature (even only as input for counter-arguments) making signitifcant some variables, like the author’s institutonal affiliation gegraphical location in the specificites analysis.

Linked to a wide research program on migratory experiences and discourse, articulated in “multi-media” and “field” studies - led by de Rosa since 2017 and developed in collaboration with a large research team - the acquisition of a huge documentation at several levels of the discourse has been the occasion of recent developments of the So.Re.Com. “A.S. de Rosa” @-Library through new filters. These specific web-tools further improve the @-library’s functionalities, allowing to extract from distinct repositories the literature specifically inspired by Social Representations in a separate or aggregate way by the literature inspired by other theories in social sciences and communication studies, in view of creating a specific repository on “migration studies”.

Selected results will be presented among those obtained by multidimensional analyses of data and meta-data extracted from different repositories of the So.Re.Com. “A.S. de Rosa” @-Library.
