            This book showcases various ways in which digital archives allow for new approaches to journalism history. The chapters in this book were selected based on three overall objectives: 1) research that highlights specific concerns within journalism history through digital archives; ...2) discussions of digital methodologies, as well as specific applications, that are accessible for journalism scholars with no prior experiences with such approaches; and 3) that journalism history and digital archives are connected in other ways than through specific methods, i.e. that the connection raises larger questions of historiography and power. The contributions address cases and developments in Asia, South and North America and Europe; and range from long-range, big-data, machine-leaning and topic modelling studies of journalistic characteristics and meta-journalistic discourses to critiques of archival practices and access in relation to gender, social movements and poverty. The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of Digital Journalism.

            SAS for Elementary Statistics: Getting Started provides an introduction to SAS programming for those who have experience with introductory statistical methods. It is also an excellent programming supplement for an introductory statistics course. It is appropriate for the beginnin...g programmer with no prior SAS experience and the researcher who would like to refresh SAS programming skills. These lessons are those the author has found successful in the classroom. Strengths of this book include the following: Examples are easy to follow and understand. Chapters have user-friendly text and objectives. Each chapter has clear objectives with SAS syntax and output results given. Objectives are stated as tasks with detailed step-by-step instructions. Programming notes based on the author's experience occur throughout the book. The author assists the reader in making sense of the error messages in the SAS log. Brief reviews of statistical methods are included in chapters accompanying the corresponding SAS procedures. Easy transition from user terminology to SAS terminology is provided. The ability to select or suppress results using Output Delivery System (ODS) is made simple. Reading and writing to external files are among the most used SAS skills, and these concepts are clearly presented. The IMPORT and EXPORT procedures and ODS are used to accomplish these tasks. Statistical Graphics procedures and SAS/GRAPH can be quite challenging to learn, but these are presented in a very achievable format. Basic graph construction is first introduced then readers learn how to add color, pattern, and other enhancements to graphics images.

            This book examines the brief yet accelerated evolution of newsgames, a genre that has emerged from puzzles, quizzes, and interactives augmenting digital journalism into full-fledged immersive video games from open world designs to virtual reality experiences. Critics have raised ...questions about the credibility and ethics of transforming serious news stories of political consequence into entertainment media, and the risks of trivializing grave and catastrophic events into mere games. Dowling explores both the negatives of newsgames, and how the use of entertainment media forms and their narrative methods mainly associated with fiction can add new and potentially more powerful meaning to news than traditional formats allow. The book also explores how industrial and cultural shifts in the digital publishing industry have enabled newsgames to evolve in a manner that strengthens certain core principles of journalism, particularly advocacy on behalf of marginalized and oppressed groups. Cutting-edge and thoughtful, The Gamification of Digital Journalism is a must-read for scholars, researchers, and practitioners interested in multimedia journalism and immersive storytelling

            The Internet of Things (IoT) has attracted strong interest from both academia and industry. Unfortunately, it has also attracted the attention of hackers. Security and Privacy in Internet of Things (IoTs): Models, Algorithms, and Implementations brings together some of the top Io...T security experts from around the world who contribute their knowledge regarding different IoT security aspects. It answers the question How do we use efficient algorithms, models, and implementations to cover the four important aspects of IoT security, i.e., confidentiality, authentication, integrity, and availability? The book consists of five parts covering attacks and threats, privacy preservation, trust and authentication, IoT data security, and social awareness. The first part introduces all types of IoT attacks and threats and demonstrates the principle of countermeasures against those attacks. It provides detailed introductions to specific attacks such as malware propagation and Sybil attacks. The second part addresses privacy-preservation issues related to the collection and distribution of data, including medical records. The author uses smart buildings as an example to discuss privacy-protection solutions. The third part describes different types of trust models in the IoT infrastructure, discusses access control to IoT data, and provides a survey of IoT authentication issues. The fourth part emphasizes security issues during IoT data computation. It introduces computational security issues in IoT data processing, security design in time series data aggregation, key generation for data transmission, and concrete security protocols during data access. The fifth and final part considers policy and human behavioral features and covers social-context-based privacy and trust design in IoT platforms as well as policy-based informed consent in the IoT.
