Dear friends and colleagues,

We are really pleased to be able to tell you that the OII is establishing a new journal, Policy and Internet, with the Policy Studies Organization and Berkeley Electronic Press. It will be the first major peer-reviewed journal to investigate the policy effects of the Internet and related technologies. We hope that you will circulate this call among your networks, and, most importantly, consider submitting an article to the new journal.

With best wishes,

Professor Helen Margetts, Editor in Chief

1. Policy and Internet: Call for Papers

The Oxford Internet Institute (OII), the Policy Studies Organization (PSO), and Berkeley Electronic Press are proud to announce Policy and Internet, the first major peer-reviewed multi-disciplinary journal investigating the implications of the Internet and associated technologies for public policy.

The Internet is now embedded in social, economic and political life, bringing with it new practices, norms and structures. The societal shift enabled by the Internet enables new kinds of policy innovation and creativity: and raises new challenges and risks for policy-making and analysis. It requires rigorous empirical investigation, theoretical development and methodological innovation across academic disciplines. Policy and Internet will become the premier arena for advancing policy research and shaping the policy agenda in the digital era.

Policy and Internet invites papers reporting world class research and scholarship on any aspect of the relationship between the Internet and public policy. The journal is fully multi-disciplinary in scope. Topics will range across policy sectors and regions of the world, including generalised, sectoral or country-specific policy effects.
