... I am happy to announce as the Weizenbaum Study Award winner 2021
(3rd prize) a new interdisciplinary journal for digitalization research:
The Weizenbaum Journal of the Digital Society. "Permeating all areas of
human life, digitalisation is a contested process interacting with
political structures and participation, economic and legal
relationships, education, and everyday life in general, calling for an
interdisciplinary research perspective. Collaborative research at the
intersection of several disciplines such as ethics, law, economics and
political science can provide a deeper understanding of the role of
digitalisation and shed light into the intricate net of dependencies
surrounding it. Against this background, the overarching goal of this
journal is to attract interdisciplinary research that investigates
issues surrounding digital technologies from more than one disciplinary
perspective, as well as disciplinary research that contributes strongly
to questions and consequences of society and digitalisation.“

Articles from the history of computing are especially welcomed! Learn
more at their website:

The first issue is available at:

Editors are: Martin Emmer (communication science); Hanna Krasnova
(information systems); Martin Krzywdzinski (sociology); Axel Metzger
(law); Sonja Schimmler (computer science); Lena Ulbricht (political science)

Stay safe and take care in these days.
