Dear researchers, colleagues, and readers interested in research on cyberspace,

We are pleased to present the fourth issue of Cyberpsychology: Journal of Psychosocial Research on Cyberspace (4-2014). In 2007, the first issue of the journal was published and that was the only issue that year. In the following four years we published two issues per year, which increased in 2012 to three issues (two regular and one special issue) and, now in 2014, we are able to expand to four issues (two regular and two special issues). This means that we have increased the total number of published articles during the year. However, as mentioned in the editorial in the July issue, the acceptance rate decreased to 12.5 percent. The increased number of issues annually can be explained by the decision to thematically gather the increased number of submissions into special issues, and also to publish special issues on interesting, timely, and relevant themes in Internet research. This year we published a special issue on Internet Sexuality and another on New Media and Democracy; both got fine response from readers and researchers and, from what we heard, also contributed to new research collaborations by connecting researchers and groups. We could not have hoped for more!

We can already disclose that we are preparing the next special issue (1-2015), which will be entitled “The Mediation by Family Members, Peers, Schools, and the Media of How Children and Adolescents Use Digital Technology”. Our aim is to continue to publish new special issues in the future. If you have an interesting theme you would like addressed, or even guest edit, please do not hesitate to contact us.
