Hyperlocal democracy, tacit knowledge sharing, digital youth participation, and online reputation building and management: four more papers in JoLIS

Journal of Librarianship and Information ScienceThe last four articles of the seven that I developed with Centre for Social Informatics colleagues from the conference papers that we presented at i3 in 2017 have worked their way through the publication process, and can now be found in the print form with assigned volume, issue and page numbers in the Journal of Librarianship and Information Science. The article titles and themes are:

  1. ‘Practices of community representatives in exploiting information channels for citizen democratic engagement’ – on the ways that elected (yet unpaid) community councillors in Scotland exploit information channels for democratic engagement with the citizens that they represent.
  2. ‘Tacit knowledge sharing in online environments: locating ‘Ba’ within a platform for public sector professionals’ – on the roles of online social platforms in the facilitation of tacit knowledge sharing, and the importance of these platforms in the initiation of discussions among experts, the fostering of collective intelligence, and making tacit and personal knowledge visible and accessible quickly with minimal effort.
  3. ‘Youth digital participation: measuring social impact’ – on scholarly debate around digital participatory youth projects, and approaches to their evaluation.
  4. ‘Blurred reputations: managing professional and private information online’ – on the portrayal of different personas online, information-sharing practices for reputation building and management according to different social media platforms, and the management of online connections and censorship.

The published versions of the papers are available directly from the publisher for those with subscription access. For those without subscription access, the manuscripts of the papers can be downloaded free of charge from the Edinburgh Napier repository.
