  • Digital Cultures, Cyber-Communities, and Simulated Selves
  • Ethical Issues and Research Directions in Surveillance, Security, and Privacy

Published by SAGE Reference in 2016, the encyclopedia features approximately 700 entries organized A-Z across 4 volumes. The encyclopedia will be available in a choice of electronic or print formats. Each 1,000- to 5,000-word article will be signed by the contributor. The General Editor, who will be reviewing each submission to the project, is Dr. Bruce Arrigo, University of North Carolina, Charlotte.

We are currently making assignments with a deadline of November 1, 2014.

If you are interested in contributing to this cutting-edge reference, it is a unique opportunity to contribute to the contemporary literature, redefining sociological issues in today’s terms.
