Mission Statement

The Weizenbaum Journal of the Digital Society is an academic journal that promotes innovative and interdisciplinary research on the digitalization of society. We aim to enrich the scientific debate with perspectives that go beyond the boundaries of individual disciplines and break new ground in the cooperation between research areas. However, discipline-oriented studies that focus on the relationship between digitalization and society and thus go beyond specialist discourses are also welcome. In addition, contributions that focus on digitalization research itself can be published. Such studies may concern theories, methods and the state of research on selected issues, interdisciplinary cooperation and the dialogue between science and society. We also welcome contributions that critically examine the digital society in the spirit of Joseph Weizenbaum, as well as papers that examine his life, ideas and work.

The WJDS aims to promote open research. It is an open access journal, with all content freely available without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author.
