Special Issue on Understanding Digital Wellbeing within Complex Technological Contexts <>

Submission deadline: February 15, 2022

Nowadays, there is a growing — yet debated — discussion around the negative aspects of overusing technology, with many people that feel conflicted about the amount of time they spend on their devices. In this context, researchers and practitioners have started to consider a new kind of psychological digital wellbeing, giving rise to the flourishing of digital self-control tools (DSCTs), i.e., external applications that support users in self-regulating their technology use through interventions like timers and lock-out mechanisms.
Currently, the digital wellbeing topic is nearly always contextualized to consider single technological sources at a time, with a prevalence of studies and DSCTs that focus on smartphones only. As many people nowadays own (and use) several devices, however, there is a need to better understand their complex and overlapping use (and non-use), and the relationships to other people’s digital wellbeing.
The purpose of this special issue is to provide the academic and industry research communities a venue for work at the state-of-the-art on digital wellbeing and DSCTs, with a particular focus on digital wellbeing within complex technological contexts.

Topics of interest for the special issue include, but are not limited to:
- Critical and systematic reviews in the area of digital wellbeing and/or DSCTs
- Evidence-based work that challenges and expands current definitions of digital wellbeing
- Novel approaches and methodologies to overcome the contemporary single-device characterization of digital wellbeing
- Digital wellbeing for under-served, under-resourced, and under-represented populations around the world
- Data collection strategies, algorithms, interventions or evaluations for multi-device DSCTs
- Multitasking and digital wellbeing
- Strategies and tools for measuring digital wellbeing in a multi-device setting
- Responsibility and role of tech companies and/or government
- Social, educational, and political factors related to digital wellbeing.
