In our current era, data-driven approaches influence all aspects of daily life. The fast and effective handling of these data is a crucial point of keeping our society working. Yet, the sheer amount of data being produced even at this very moment is often to big to be interpreted and understood in a correct and timely fashion. It is this complexity and criticality that renders the usability and accessibility of data and the inherent information even more important.

JeDEM Vol 7, No 1 (2015) out now! – Social Media and Socio-Political Change

jedem logoThe 1st number of JeDEM 2015 presents our Special Issue on Social Media and Socio-Political Change from an Asian perspective. We are happy to present this issue in cooperation with guest editors Natalie Pang (Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information, Singapore Internet Research Centre) and Marko Skoric (City University, Hong Kong).

With the widespread adoption of social media in many Asian societies, these platforms are increasingly used in a variety of ways to promote civic and political aims but such uses are shaped by various stakeholders and contexts of use. In this special issue, four papers on Japan, Singapore, Malaysia and China-Australia present highly contextualized assessments of the role of social media in civic and political life in Asia.

Additionally, the issue presents ongoing research paper submissions to JeDEM that made it through the double-blind peer review process.

PS: As authors, you can submit to one of the thematic calls, but also as “ongoing” submissions, that is, not in response to a specific call. We are looking forward to your submissions! If you are intersted in becoming a reviewer for our journal, please do not hesitate to contact the managing editor.
