Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Cyberbullying is defined as the use of electronic media to cause willful repeated harm to others who cannot readily defend themselves. Prevalence rates of those who are cyber-victimized, perpetrate cyberbullying, or both suggest that cyberbullying is a well-recognized public health issue which affects the physical and psychological health of children and adolescents. Anxiety, fear, depression, low self-esteem, behavioral issues, suicide ideation, and academic struggles are just a few of the challenges youth may experience if they perpetrate or are targets of online harm.
In order to aid intervention efforts to reduce cyberbullying (victimization and perpetration alike), we aim in this Special Issue to collect articles on cyberbullying and its impact on children and adolescents’ health, to bring together the latest research progress on this topic, and to draw more and more attention to it.
For this Special Issue, we invite authors to submit original research articles and reviews that focus on cyberbullying-related topics. We would also appreciate it if you could forward this to your team members and colleagues who may also be interested in the topic.
Thank you for your consideration. Please contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.
Dr. Christopher P. Barlett
