The Policy Studies Organization (PSO), the Oxford Internet Institute (OII), and Berkeley Electronic Press are proud to announce Policy & Internet: the first major peer-reviewed journal investigating the implications of the Internet and associated technologies for public policy. The Internet is now the most important international medium of communication and information exchange, embedded in interactions between citizens, firms, governments and NGOs, and bringing with it new practices, norms and structures. The societal shift enabled by the Internet has major implications for public policy in all sectors, requiring rigorous empirical investigation, theoretical development and methodological innovation across academic disciplines. Policy & Internet is the first journal to fill a crucial gap in policy knowledge and research. It will be the premier venue for scholars and researchers to set the public policy agenda in the digital era.

Policy & Internet calls for papers reporting on innovative research into any aspect of the implications of the Internet for public policy. To stay notified, please sign up for email alerts by entering your e-mail address in the right-hand sidebar. To submit your next paper, please click here.

Cybercrime is a pressing and prevalent problem in the information society. It carries with it a considerable set of associated risks for individuals, businesses and industries, and public administration and e-government. Multidisciplinary views on the issues raised for public policy by cybercrime are actively being sought by policy-making communities. This special issue on cybercrime brings together a range of articles that exemplify many of the problems that the abuse of networked technologies brings to the Internet society as a whole and which engage with policy responses that impact upon national and supra-national legislation, cooperation in law enforcement, public-private cooperation, and international coordination against transnational crime.
