Dear researchers, colleagues, and readers interested in cyberspace,
it is our honor to introduce the first special issue of 2013, entitled
"Children in Cyberspace: Opportunities, Risks and Safety", guest edited by
Veronika Kalmus (University of Tartu, Estonia) and Kjartan Olafsson
(University of Akureyri, Iceland & Masaryk University, Brno).
The rationale behind this special issue was to serve as a publishing platform for articles addressing the overall topic of children in cyberspace. Researchers from the EU Kids Online network and beyond were invited to submit articles focusing on online opportunities, risks and safety.
It is encouraging for future efforts in collecting comparative data on this topic to see how the authors of the seven articles in this volume have employed the data and findings of the EU Kids Online survey. Two of the articles make direct use of the unique EU Kids Online data and the other articles use the survey findings either as a point of departure or for comparison.
Call for papers: we would like to announce a call for papers for the next special issue which will focus on online sexuality and will be edited by Kristian Daneback and Anna Sevcikova.
