  • Aims and Scope

    Aims and Scope


    The 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.

    Sample topics include:

    • Identification of important correlates, predictors, and outcome variables specific to bullying and cyberbullying
    • Effective school- and community-based youth bullying prevention and interventions
    • Effective workplace-based bullying prevention and interventions
    • Methods for measuring key constructs in bullying prevention for use as prescriptive, descriptive, or outcome variables
    • Evaluation of mediators and moderators of response to prevention and intervention methods
    • Evaluation of outcomes of bullying prevention policy and programming
    • Development and early evaluation of bullying interventions and treatment strategies
    • Mixed-method studies with specific themes
    • Studies involving underrepresented groups (e.g., racial, ethic, and sexual minorities) as well as individuals with disabilities
    • Evaluation of web-based or app-specific cognitive and behavioral interventions to reduce bullying and cyberbullying
    • Cross-cultural comparative research on aggressors, targets, and interventions
    • Meta-analyses focused on relevant causes, correlates, and outcomes
    • Content analyses
    • Focus groups, case studies, phenomenological, and grounded theory approaches
    • Dissemination, training, and fidelity issues in bullying prevention, interventions, and treatment techniques
    • Reviews of these topics that summarize and coalesce findings to inform next steps in research and practice
