Internet Research

Aims and Scope  

Internet Research is an international, refereed journal that aims to describe, assess and foster understanding of the role of wide-area, multi-purpose computer networks such as the Internet. The Internet continues to gather influence and momentum, and it becomes increasingly important to be aware of the potential applications of this powerful resource throughout professional, political, personal and academic life. We therefore strongly encourage research that develops theoretical insights and understanding on topics and issues addressing the potential social, ethical, economic and political implications which arise from mass public access to information resources. 

Coverage includes but is not limited to:

  • Societal and ethical issues (e.g., internet addiction, cyberbullying, online fraud, spreading of rumors, invasion of privacy, and infringement of intellectual property right, social inclusion/exclusion)
  • Economic implications (e.g., electronic commerce, mobile commerce, and social commerce)
  • Managerial and organizational issues (e.g., Internet use practices, management policies and governance mechanisms)
  • Political implications (e.g., civic engagement, collective action, Internet-related policy research)
