Q. Where do I find legal journals regarding social media and cyberbullying. Can you recommend a particular peer reviewed publication?

I am writing a research paper about the negative / legal aspects of social media


Hello Elaine

I would suggest two different databases you could use to find information. Login to Ebscohost and combine the following databases: Communication and Mass Media Complete, Education Research Complete and Legal Collection by clicking the on the checkmark and then click continue. Once you have done that go to limit your results and check the boxes for full-text and scholarly peer-review. Then combine the terms cyberbullying AND social media. You should find results of a legal nature as well as others. I tried out the search and received 17 results.

The other search that you could do is in LexisNexis Academic, since it has a legal searchbox. In LexisNexis go to US Legal and click on Federal and State Cases and then in the search box, enter the search "cyberbullying". You should find a number of legal cases about cyberbullying in  this way.
