Freely available online, the research toolkit aims to facilitate the gathering of global evidence on key issues related to children's online experiences, including cyberbullying. In this respect, it aims to critically evaluate the relationship between traditional forms of face-to-face peer aggression and online bullying and the boundaries between cyberbullying and other forms of online aggression.

Global Kids Online has also been working to expand the research evidence from middle- and low-income countries where children are now gaining internet access. A comparative research synthesis summarises country findings from Argentina, Serbia, South Africa and the Philippines, with latest research evidence from Brazil, Bulgaria and Montenegro also available.
