Call for Papers – Special Issue on Organisational Architecture Beyond E-Government

Special Issue on Organisational Architecture Beyond E-Government

International Journal of Public Administration in the Digital Age

Submission Due Date

15 October 2016

Introduction

Organizational architecture is the area of study concerned with the optimal way to design an organization to achieve its aims. Much research relating to politics and policy in the digital age with respect to organizational architecture has focused on e-government in terms of making government functions available to the public via the Internet. However, the reform needed to government bodies in order to cope with the new challenges in the digital age, such as from cyber-crime, cyber-terrorism and cyber-warfare are often overlooked when information strategies are put together.

Objective

The aim of this special issue is to look at the how the organizational architecture of government organisations need to change to cope with the new threats that exist in the digital age, which were not envisaged when e-government as a concept was defined. The importance of government departments sharing data is becoming more evident, as is the situation where the provision of government security services, such as policing and other law enforcement, at a local rather than national level is proving in effective in dealing with cyber-crime, where the criminals are unlikely to be in the same locality as their victim. This special issue will therefore look at the changes that can be made to the organizational architectures of public authorities to respond to the problems that have come into existence in the digital age.

Recommended Topics

Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Restructuring of government departments and agencies
  • Abolition, reduction or replacement of specific government services
  • Administration of tax collecting and financial monitoring systems
  • Approaches to achieving peace and security in a global context
  • Means for facilitating cooperation between different national governments
  • Detection and response to threats both inside and outside the organization

Introduction

Pseudonymity- a state of disguised identity. On one side of the debate are the world’s largest social network sites, including Facebook and Google+, with both services demanding that people use their real names and advocating the the push towards a “real name” Internet. On the other side of the debate are scholars such as sites such as 4chan and Reddit that view anonymity and pseudonymity as important to how people construct identity online. While much has been written about the benefits of anonymity and pseudonymity, there is a lack of published research examining specific practices enabled by pseudonyms.

Objective

The objective of the proposed Special Issue is to highlight the specific issues and challenges around pseudonymity. Research contributions in this special issue will provide insights about the nature of pseudonymity in relation to technology. The contents in this special issue are of interest for researchers working in the domains of Internet security, online communities, e-participation, cyberculture, e-politics, e-society, sociology, cybercultures and multimedia studies, and cognitive science.

The International Journal of Internet Trolling and Online Participation

Introduction

Sex and Gender are terms often used synonymously, when sex is better thought of in terms of whether someone is physically a man or a woman and gender in terms of their mind, such as whether they are male, female or a combination. Sex equality is often thought of in terms of increasing the numbers of women in any given organisation as opposed to having more female-brained persons regardless of sex. This special issue seeks to look at how women and men are represented in social media, such as Twitter and Facebook and how the dynamics between and within sexes can be used to increase sex and gender equality online so that people regardless of whether they are a man, woman, transsexual, or whether they are male, female or transgender, can enjoy equal right to participate online.

Objective

The objective of the proposed Special Issue is to highlight the specific issues and challenges to supporting gender and sex equality in social networking communities. Research contributions in this special issue will provide insights about the nature of sex and gender online, differences between and within sexes in terms of their contributions to the Internet and attitudes to other Internet users. The contents in this special issue are of interest for researchers working in the domains of women studies, gender studies, feminism, cyberculture, e-politics, e-society, sociology, cybercultures and multimedia studies, and political science.

Recommended Topics

Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following in the context of sex and gender equality:

  • Misogyny, misandry, chauvanism, sexism
  • Gender differences between and within sexes
  • Internet trolling, rape-callout trolls, porn e-vengers
  • Corpus linguistics, narratives, iconography
  • Power structures, stereotypes
  • Differences between Women’s Studies and Feminist Studies

Call for Chapters: Gamification for Human Factors Integration: Social, Educational, and Psychological Issues (Closed)

Editor

Call for Chapters

Closed.

Introduction

The world is changing like never before. But human beings, it seems, are not. Recent advances in Internet technology, and social networking in particular, have resulted in a number of social problems for societies to deal with. So-called Internet trolling means people are being bullied online, from what was once the safety of their home. So-called Internet addiction means spending hours online, damaging relationships and other outcomes. The solution to all these problems, it could be argued, is gamification – the application of gaming principles to non-gaming environments in order to encourage positive behaviour. Gamification can be applied in nearly any technology-supported context where the advantages of being human, such as being competitive and goal-orientated can be used for the betterment of societies, and not against them.

Objective

The objective of this book is to advance gamification research to solve the problems arising from human-computer interaction on the Internet. In recent years there have been a number of advancements in social computing, e-learning systems and cyberpsychology theories. This book invites submissions as part of this call for chapters on theoretical and applied applications integrating these concepts with gaming theory so as to improve human interaction online.

Recommended Topics

This call for chapters welcomes submissions on how gamification can be used to solve the following problems:

  • The role of gamification for encouraging positive behaviour online; to reduce Internet trolling and cyberbullying
  • The role of gamification for motivating learning and participation; such as through Classroom 2.0 or e-learning
  • The role of gamification for converting users; such as lurkers into posters, browsers into buyers, and electors into voters
  • The role of gamification for encouraging lawful behaviour among people with anti-social behaviours
  • The role of gamification for behaviour change in general; such as captology, seductive hypermedia
  • The role of gamification for improving offline communities and societies; such as through crowd-funding, e-petitions, Big Society, election campaigning
  • The role of gamification for improving health; such as through agent-based systems, leader-boards, badges, and combatting depression and so-called Internet addiction.

Publisher

This call for chapters is for a book to be published in 2013 by IGI Global (formerly Idea Group Inc.), publisher of the “Information Science Reference” (formerly Idea Group Reference), “Medical Information Science Reference,” “Business Science Reference,” and “Engineering Science Reference” imprints. For additional information regarding the publisher, please visit www.igi-global.com.

Submission Procedure

Researchers and practitioners are invited to respond to this call for chapters by submitting papers for this edited book on Gamification on or before May 15, 2013. All submissions must be original and may not be under review by another publication. INTERESTED AUTHORS SHOULD CONSULT THE PUBLISHER’S GUIDELINES FOR MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS at http://www.igi-global.com/Files/AuthorEditor/guidelinessubmission.pdf.

Reviews will be conducted by the relevant Editorial Reviewing Committee for the book on the basis of peer review, consisting of those with specialisms in the area of the paper submitted. Authors are also asked to submit the details of one to two experts in the field of their chapter whom the reviewers may call on for an opinion where further expertise is needed.

The Editorial Reviewing Committee will first consider whether the chapter will be of interest to the book’s intended readers and its potential to draw interest and citation from the wider academic sphere. We may recommend the chapter be submitted to another call for papers if it would fit better with those.

Authors are invited to submit two to three international academics with expertise on their chapter who may or may not be called to act as reviewers on a blind review basis. A positive review(s) does not guarantee acceptance, and the editor’s decision is final. Chapters must follow APA style for reference citations.

Special Issue on Internet Trolling in the International Journal of E-Politics (Closed)

Submission Due Date

Closed – In Press.

Guest Editor

Journal

International Journal of E-Politics – IGI Global

Introduction

Since 2011 prominence has been drawn to ‘Internet trolling’, the posting of provocative messages or other content on Internet websites for humorous effect. Since the popularisation of self-described “trolls” on websites like 4chan, who as online miscreants abuse others for their own sick entertainment only, has meant mass media across the world has grasped the term to label all forms of Internet abuse as ‘trolling’ and all Internet abusers or cyberbullies as “trolls”. This focus of the term has provided a new legitimacy to young people seeking the Internet as an avenue to express their resentment at lack of opportunity in the economy, and also the ever present discontented masses who resent the success of any ‘ordinary person’ who makes it into the headlines, whether they win a school swimming contest, or a rare opportune Oscar. This special issue explores the implications and issues of Internet trolling to suggest appropriate strategies to improve the management of flame trolling, which tries to harm, and foster greater kudos trolling, which tries to create good humor and social bonding.

Objective

The objective of the proposed Special Issue is to highlight the issues facing, legislators, law enforcers and those seeking or elected to public office. Research contributions in this special issue will provide insights for rethinking approaches to Internet abuse, cybercrime, and other areas that have an impact on the management and proliferation of Internet trolling. The contents in this special issue are of interest for researchers working in the domains of information security and cybercrime, human computer interaction, organizational science, cyberculture and multimedia studies, and political science.

Recommended Topics

Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Effectiveness of information security policies and laws for dealing with flame trolling
  • Extent and limitations of webmaster powers over trolling (i.e., sysop prerogative)
  • Limitations, challenges, and barriers to ICT systems as a result of trolling
  • Media representations of Internet trolling, “trolls” and “the art of trolling”
  • Political, ethical, security, privacy, and legal issues
  • Politics of Internet trolling and the use and misuse of “trolling” for electoral gain
  • Powers and controls of website controllers and the impact of state regulation
  • System design for encouraging kudos trolling and reducing flame trolling
  • User experiences of trolling, and attitudes towards kudos and flame trollers

Submission Procedure

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers for this special theme issue on Internet Trolling. All submissions must be original and may not be under review by another publication. INTERESTED AUTHORS SHOULD CONSULT THE JOURNAL’S GUIDELINES FOR MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS at http://www.igi-global.com/Files/AuthorEditor/guidelinessubmission.pdf.

All submitted papers will be reviewed on a peer review basis. Authors are invited to submit two to three international academics with expertise on their paper who may or may not be called to act as reviewers on a blind-review basis. A positive review(s) does not guarantee acceptance. Any authors who are unsuccessful in being among the final 6 papers, may wish for it to be considered for a different call for papers on Internet trolling.

Papers must follow APA style for reference citations.

NB. Papers can be submitted any time before the deadline, as reviewing will take place throughout the period of the advertising of this call for papers. Successful papers for the special issue will be give a letter of approval so the authors can put their publication on their CVs. A edited book on Internet trolling is being compiled concurrently. Authors should indicate whether they wish their paper to be simultaneously considered for this. Again, this will be done between submission and deadline, and authors will receive a confirmation of acceptance letter to add their chapter to their CV.

All submissions and inquiries should be directed to the attention of:
