About Journal of Cybersecurity and Privacy


Journal of Cybersecurity and Privacy (ISSN 2624-800X) is an online, open access, peer-reviewed journal which provides a forum for the dissemination of research related to all technical areas of cybersecurity. This includes information, computer and network security, cryptography, cyber–physical system security, digital forensics, etc. In addition, the journal also includes interdisciplinary articles that cover the privacy, ethical, legal, and economic aspects of cybersecurity.

The journal’s goal is to attract a broad spectrum of article types in order to foster collaboration between different fields working to address the emergence of security and privacy threats. The articles can include traditional research-focused articles; educational surveys to instruct the broader technical community; informative articles that discuss practical policy, legal, and economic aspects of cybersecurity; and editorial or position articles that pose new ideas and paradigm shifts for the field of cybersecurity.
