This peer reviewed journal provides an interdisciplinary scientific forum in which to publish current research on the causes, forms, and multiple contexts of bullying and cyberbullying as well as evolving best practices in identification, prevention, and intervention. Noting that bullying may occur at schools, universities, communities, the workplace, and/or online – and that cyberbullying can subsume sexting, digital dating abuse, sextortion, and doxing – the journal welcomes empirical, theoretical, and review papers on a broad range of issues, populations, and domains. Authors should include relevant discussion on policy and actionable practice in offline and/or online environments. The journal is of interest to scientists and practitioners across such interrelated disciplines as child, adolescent, and school psychology; public health; social work and counseling; criminology; child and adolescent psychiatry; sociology; anthropology; education; pediatrics; information technology; human resources management; and other associated fields within social or computer science.

Cyberbullying or online bullying, harassment and abuse pose significant challenges for online platforms. The use of natural language processing (NLP), various forms of machine learning (such as supervised machine learning, deep learning) and artificial intelligence (AI), is becoming more prevalent in moderating these behaviours on social media platforms and various content sharing apps. For this special issue, we are looking for a variety of submissions from a range of disciplines that examine various aspects of AI applications to address abuse.
Guest Editors: Tijana Milosevic, Kathleen Van Royen, and Brian Davis
Submission Deadlines: Abstracts should be submitted by October 31, 2020. Full manuscripts should be submitted by December 1, 2020.
Special Issue on qualitative methods in school bullying and cyberbullying research
As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
