The seventh issue will be entitled Internet Convergences and will be coedited by Matthew Allen, Axel Bruns and Fay Sudweeks.
This special issue, based on selected papers to be presented at the 7th Association of Internet Researchers conference (Brisbane, September 2006), will explore the ‘convergence’ of network media technologies. By exemplifying how contemporary scholars are using the notion of convergence to examine the still emerging technologies of the Internet within society, the issue will consider how convergence is a concept for thinking differently about media technologies.
This edition will be available online early October, 2006.
