Call For Papers

Call for papers for a volume of studies on: Searching the Net in the Google Age
Edited by Jonathan James

The World Wide Web has transformed the way we think, work, interact socially and engage in
commerce. Never in the history of mankind has there been such an opportunity to access virtual libraries on a plethora of subjects in real time with search engines like Google. In the morass of web data there are both valuable treasures of information as well an incredible amount of junk.

This book seeks to understand the dilemmas, opportunities, obstacles and threats involved in the information searching habits of a cross section of internet users ranging from children to senior citizens and the disabled. Each of the chapters asks the questions:

● What topics are people searching for?
● Why are they searching?
● How are they searching?

The chapters also deal with the impact of this searching generation – both how searching affects us (the searchers) and how institutions and governments can and may use search profile data for their own ends. There will be 6 main chapters along with an introduction and a concluding chapter by the editor. We are looking for contributors for the following chapters:

1. Children
2. Teenagers
3. Youth and young adults
4. Senior Citizens
5. People with Disability
6. Security, Privacy and Surveillance

Published in English, the book will be purchasable in paperback and accessible online free of charge. Please submit your expression of interest and a 500 word abstract, together with brief details pertaining to your field of research and institutional affiliation, if any. The abstract is due by February, 15, 2013 and should be emailed as a Word document to
and with the following subject line: “Abstract - Searching in the Google Age”. The completed chapters (7,000 words per chapter) for the volume are due by May 1, 2013.

Important dates

● Submission of abstracts: February 15, 2013
