*Call for papers: Special issue of the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication*

Guest editors

Mike Yao, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Rich Ling, Nanyang Technological University

What is computer-mediated communication (CMC)? Further, what is the nature of the social and psychological processes vis-a-vis such digitally-mediated communication? In the quarter-century since the founding of the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication (emphasis added), there have been significant changes in the object of study, the theories, and methods used to examine the phenomenon.

The Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication invites abstracts for a dedicated issue to consider the scope, theoretical direction, and methodological concerns in technology-mediated communication research. In the case of a special issue, we will suspend the criteria of requiring papers to have a primarily empirical focus. We invite articles that will help frame the future direction of research into digitally-mediated communication.

We will first seek extended abstracts of 1000-1500 words that outline the domain of the paper, the main argument, the literature upon which the paper is built, and the proposed contribution to the specific domain and to the sub-discipline. Submit papers to (mzyao /at/ <mailto:(mzyao /at/> and mark the subject line with "JCMC Special issue." The submission should come with a brief biography (approx. 100-150 words) of the authors. *Abstracts should be submitted by 31 March 2018*.

Notification of commissioned papers will be made by the end of May 2018. Full articles will be due by 1 Oct 2018, through <>. The manuscripts must conform to the formatting standards of JCMC.
