CALL FOR PAPERS
JDFSL Special issue on Cyberharassment Investigation: Advances and Trends.

Anecdotal evidence indicates that cyber harassment is becoming more prevalent as the use of social media becomes increasingly widespread, making geography and physical proximity irrelevant. Cyberharassment can take different forms (e.g., cyberbullying, cyberstalking, cybertrolling), and be motivated by the objectives of inflicting distress, exercising control, impersonation, and defamation. Investigation of these behaviours is particularly challenging because it involves digital evidence distributed across the digital devices of both alleged offenders and victims, as well as online service providers, sometimes over an extended period of time. As a result, little is currently known about the modus operandi of offenders.

This special issue invites original contributions from researchers and practitioners which focus on the state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice of digital forensic investigation of cyberharassment of all kinds. We particularly encourage multidisciplinary contributions that can help examiners to be more effective and efficient in cyberharassment investigations.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
-Offender psychology and profiling
-Cyberharassment victimology
-Methodologies and process models specific to cyberharassment investigation
-Tools and techniques for dealing with the types of digital evidence encountered in cyberharassment investigation
-Cyberharassment indicators
-Challenges and particularities of different modalities of cyberharassment
-Trends and typologies of cyberharassment
