The peer-reviewed journal of Internet policy in Europe is seeking submissions of 6000-8000 words on topics of relevance to the regulation of digital communication technologies. The journal, edited in partnership between Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society in Berlin, the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in France and CREATe at the University of Glasgow, publishes four issues per year and considers new submissions on a rolling basis.
Internet Policy Review is a multidisciplinary journal at the confluence of policy studies, technology studies, law, economics, communication studies and sociology. Engagement may take the form of empirical, legal or theoretical analysis or scholarly essays but should always be critical and original. Submissions should make explicit reference to European policy and should be oriented towards analysing and, if appropriate, proposing regulatory solutions to emerging socio-technical challenges. The journal has previously published contributions on topics such as the regulation of cryptocurrencies, the role of Wikipedia in the ‘freedom of panorama’ debate and the copyright implications of user-generated content.
2016/2017 has seen significant growth for the journal, with three special issues published in the past year (including one on Regulating the Sharing Economy by Glasgow colleagues Inge Sorensen and Kris Erickson). The journal is currently indexed in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) of the Web of Science.
