"... starts with play and ends with work" (JCMC 11, 4)


Susan Herring, SLIS professor, recently announced the release of Volume 11, issue 4 of the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication (JCMC). About this new issue, Herring (who is the JCMC editor) wrote:

Our latest issue, JCMC 11(4), starts with play and ends with work. Three articles on computer gaming and play start off the issue, and contributions on e-commerce, virtual teams, and online word-of-mouth (or "word-of-mouse") marketing close it. You can also read about the latest research on U.S. metropolitan websites, cross-cultural virtual "third spaces," and online exclamations, signatures, and "away messages." [JCMC website]

John Paolillo, SLIS and Informatics faculty member, is the JCMC Associate Editor.

The focus of the journal is "social science research on computer-mediated communication via the Internet, the World Wide Web, and wireless technologies. Within that general purview, the journal is broadly interdisciplinary, publishing work by scholars in communication, business, education, political science, sociology, media studies, information science, and other disciplines... It was founded in 1995."
