Journal of Digital Social Research (JDSR)

Journal of Digital Social Research (JDSR) is a peer-reviewed open-access journal focusing on the relationship between digital technology and society.

Aims and scope: “The journal seeks to publish high-quality original research within all fields of social sciences interacting with digital issues. Social science is defined broadly to include, inter alia, sociology, informatics, pedagogy, education science, gender studies, law, economy, social work and geography. We do welcome submissions from neighbouring research fields if they are relevant to a social science audience.

We particularly encourage cross-disciplinary submissions and submissions focusing on theoretical and methodological issues. Furthermore, as digital issues tend to transcend borders JDSR, has an international viewpoint and prioritizes submissions which are of interest from an international standpoint. National or regional case-studies are of course of interest but should be put in context and made relevant for international readers.”
