The UKCCIS Evidence Group release open call for research evidence

The UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) Evidence Group is currently looking for research evidence to include in its research highlights series.

The series so far contains 105 reviews of current research relating to child internet safety.

The research highlights series provides an overview of current research in this area in order to identify trends and knowledge gaps, and inform related policy decisions.

The UKCCIS Evidence Group

The Evidence Group provides the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) with helpful summaries of relevant and new research and includes representatives from NGOs, academia and the police.

The series aims to keep UKCCIS, and the wider public, up to date with current research.

Call for research

The UKCCIS are looking for reports or academic articles which detail the results of empirical research in the following areas:

  1. Children’s online activities
  2. Risk of harm to children online
  3. Vulnerable children
  4. Initiatives to safeguard children online

 

The research can be based on qualitative or quantitative methodologies, as well as systematic reviews / rapid evidence assessments. It must be publicly available and meet the criteria outlined in the UKCCIS Guide on Good Quality Research

The research should ideally have a UK focus, though evidence which benchmarks aspects of child internet safety against other countries also has relevance.

Please send relevant submissions electronically to Dr Jo Bryce (jbryce@uclan.ac.uk) by Friday 3rd march
