Here’s an interesting call for papers for a special issue of the journal Social Science Computer Review on Best Practices in Social Media at Non-profit, Public, Education, and Healthcare Organizations. There are still a few days left until the submission deadline on July 30, 2013, so if you have a manuscript that’s almost done and fits the theme, it may be worthwhile giving it a try. Below is a short description of what the editors are looking for.
The special issue of SSCR aims to investigate and understand different aspects of social media use in government, nonprofit, education, and health care organizations. We are soliciting original contributions in the form of evidence-based , “best practices” studies, scholarship on legal and ethical issues, case studies, and empirical research. All lenses of inquiry , including strategic, organizational, behavioural, legal, economic, and technical are encouraged. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary and international research that develops and applies multiple perspectives.
