Call for Content: Internet Column, SEEIR

The journal of Slavic & East European Information Resources is to seeking content for our next issue focused on the Internet.

The theme of the Internet is, of course, vast and so the column can feature essays that address any aspect of digitization, digital material, digital applications or the Internet related to Slavic and East European studies. For instance, past column pieces have analyzed the Czech Republic’s OA journal market, surveyed websites that support research of Lithuanian culture, politics, and history, proposed a typology of Russian digital libraries, and discussed efforts to web archive LGBTQ resources throughout the region.

SEEIR has generally served the information sciences community most directly, but I’m convinced that the topic of the internet also invites the perspectives of researchers and instructors. How is the internet important to literary culture in the SEE region? How does it impact politics? How are politics impacting the internet?

Tips for navigating the RuNet to greatest effect?
