Article
In this paper we present the findings from the third phase of our (redacted) project on citizens data literacies. The data literacies framework we developed - Data Citizenship - stemmed from an analysis of recent literature on data and digital literacy combined with ideas from democratic education. In particular, we focus on the power imbalance bet...
Article
This paper presents findings on the correspondence of levels of digital systems and media use with a range of socio-economic and demographic measures in the U.K. Most research on inequalities in regard to digital systems and media has focused on access and skills. Building on prior work (Yates and Lockley, 2018; Yates, et al., 2015) we argue that i...

In this paper we examine what 'data literacy'-under various definitions-means at a time of persistent distribution of 'dis-/mis-/mal-information' via digital media. The paper first explores the definition of literacies (written, media, information, digital and data literacies) considering the various parameters and considerations they have gone thr...

Just as with the development of the PREVENT agenda in the context of community policing, there is a need to develop a range of approaches to identifying and countering online extremist views with credible voices. There is, therefore, a need to identify a common profile of self-radicalized individuals, and also the process of self-radicalization. Th...

E-health in the developed countries has increased significantly in recent years, and yet these healthcare services are rapidly reaching a point of inflection.

Criminal investigations generate large volumes of complex data that detectives have to analyse and understand. This data tend to be "リsiloed' within individual jurisdictions and re-using it in other investigations can be difficult. Investigations into trans-national crimes are hampered by the problem of discovering relevant data held by agencies...

The term ‘disconnection’ in the title of our chapter refers to a disjuncture between individuals and officialdom. According to Easton and Dennis (1967, p. 26), a politically efficacious person is able ‘to construct a psychic map of the political world with strong lines of force running from himself to the place of officialdom’. In this sense, we pr...
