    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;While there is an increasing flow of media stories reporting cases of cyberbullying, particularly within&lt;br&gt;
online social media, research efforts in the academic community are scattered over different topics&lt;br&gt;
across the social science and computer science academic disciplines. In this work, we explored&lt;br&gt;
research pertaining to cyberbullying, conducted across disciplines. We mainly sought to&lt;br&gt;
understand scholarly activity on intelligence techniques for the detection of cyberbullying when it&lt;br&gt;
occurs. Our findings suggest that the vast majority of academic contributions on cyberbullying&lt;br&gt;
focus on understanding the phenomenon, risk factors, and threats, with the prospect of&lt;br&gt;
suggesting possible protection strategies. There is less work on intelligence techniques for the&lt;br&gt;
detection of cyberbullying when it occurs, while currently deployed algorithms seem to detect&lt;br&gt;
the problem only up to some degree of success. The article summarises the current trends aiming&lt;br&gt;
to encourage discussion and research with a new scope; we call for more research tackling the&lt;br&gt;
problem by leveraging statistical models and computational mechanisms geared to detect,&lt;br&gt;
intervene, and prevent cyberbullying. Coupling intelligence techniques with specific web&lt;br&gt;
technology problems can help combat this social menace. We argue that a multidisciplinary&lt;br&gt;
approach is needed, with expertise from human&amp;ndash;computer interaction, psychology, computer&lt;br&gt;
science, and sociology, for current challenges to be addressed and significant progress to be made.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
