Issue 2, vol. 11



Dear researchers, colleagues, and readers interested in internet-related research,


We are happy to present the second issue of this year. The issue includes five high quality articles from authors from four continents. We would also like to share journal-related exciting news: with newly published SJR scores Cyberpsychology made it to Q2 in Scopus. Our number of citations is constantly raising and we are very proud to see this trend. This, of course, would not be happening without the effort of authors, reviewers, readers, and editorial board – to whom we owe our gratitude and thanks.

Editorial: How to get your manuscript accepted


Dear researchers, colleagues, and readers interested in internet-related research,


We are delighted to present the fourth and final issue of 2016, which comprises of seven articles that cover a variety of topics, theoretical perspectives, and methodological approaches. Besides an article from the U.S., the research presented in this issue is primarily conducted by researchers in Europe. What we especially like to see is the international collaborations between researchers across nations – one of the studies, for example, brings together researchers from Norway, Germany, and the Netherlands. As internet researchers, we sometimes find ourselves alone in our departments, either because of being sort of aliens in relation to our academic discipline or because we run out of funding and have to dissolve our groups. Combining perspectives across disciplines and nations are, of course, other sound reasons for collaboration. Therefore, finding and/or inviting colleagues internationally may keep us in business and able to continue to investigate the different corners of cyberspace in the most fruitful ways.

Special issue (3-2015)


We are honored to present the special issue (3-2015) of Cyberpsychology: Journal of Psychosocial Research on Cyberspace - Experience and Benefits of Game Playing. This special issue reflects the efforts of a range of European, American and Australian researchers who place the experience of playing video games at the core of their reflective work. Studies on video gaming can be differentiated on the basis of the extent to which the research positions games at the heart of their work, in addition to the extent to which research gives attention to the capacities and thinking of the game player to be able to offer perspectives on player experience. This approach to research is evident in all articles included in this special issue.
