Special issue on bystanders in online aggression published


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

Bystanders witnessing online aggression can make a difference - if they choose to intervene. Read the special issue devoted to these important actors in online world published at the end of 2018. The issue was edited by Hana Machackova (Masaryk University, Brno, Czechia), Jan Pfetsch (Technische Universität, Berlin, Germany), and Georges Steffgen (University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg). The issue contains 6 articles: a systematic review focused on the personal and contextual factors which may facilitate or inhibit the bystanders’ actions; empirical elaboration on the participant roles of cyberbullying; studies grasping the specificity of online aggression and its impact on bystanders’ responses; investigation of negativity and aggression in celebrity-news articles and following readers’ discussions; and a study providing evidence about negative consequences of bystanders’ experiences.

We believe the issue presents a unique collection of new  insights in this timely research field. Enjoy the reading!
