Cyberpsychology published a new special issue on bystanders of online aggression
Cyberpsychology published a new issue - a special issue on an extremely timely topic: bystanders in online aggression.
The issue leading guest editor was our colleague and a member of IRTIS, Hana Machackova. On the preparation of the issue, she cooperated with Jan Pfetsch from Technische Universität Berlin and Georges Steffgen from the University of Luxembourg. Their joint effort led to a high-quality collection of articles that are available on Cyberpsychology's website.
The issue consists of an editorial and these articles:
