New Journal: Policy and Internet

A new journal, Policy and Internet, has issued calls for papers for its first volume. The Policy Studies Organization and the Oxford Internet Institute and Berkeley Electronic Press, the publishers, are aiming to release the journal in the summer of this year. They claim that “[i]t will be the first major peer-reviewed journal to investigate the policy effects of the Internet and related technologies.” Those interested in submitting articles will want to take a look at the Aims and Scope page.

(Two irrelevancies: 1. Why “Internet” and not “the Internet”? That word doesn’t sit easily as an abstract term. Now perhaps they mean “internets”… 2. It’s time to stop capitalizing “internet.”)


  1. 2. It’s time to stop capitalizing “internet.”

    No. In the English language, we capitalize proper nouns.
