IGI Global Offers Free Access to "Virtual Environments, Online Racial Discrimination, and Adjustment among a Diverse, School-Based Sample of Adolescents"
A New Yorker cartoonist mentions "On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog," in the Harvard Business Review (HBR) article "Fixing Discrimination in Online Marketplaces." As virtual communications skyrocket, some individuals believe discrimination is a thing of the past because identity can be hidden behind an online presence. According to HBR and IGI Global scholarly research, the Internet is actually a primary source for hate and discrimination.
IGI Global's innovative research explores racial discrimination in adolescents in the article titled "Virtual Environments, Online Racial Discrimination, and Adjustment among a Diverse, School-Based Sample of Adolescents," where a study is conducted with 627 sixth through twelfth graders in K-8 middle and high schools. The study evaluates minority groups and the discrimination they are facing in online versus offline settings to determine the need for clinicians, educational professionals and researchers who protect children from discriminatory issues.
