Online harassment has becoming an unavoidable issue and many people are trying to find methods to mitigate online harassment. In this study, we did a systematic review of online harassment interventions. We focused on studies that proposed online mechanisms and designed experiments to test the corresponding effects. We collected 17 studies from scholarly databases which met our criteria. Among these studies, we categorized the interventions into 7 groups based on the theoretical or design-related mechanism they were using to justify the intervention. At the end of the study, we critically reviewed these studies and proposed some ideas for future research.
