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.
