Other Security Journals

  • Journal of Privacy Technology (JOPT), Editor-in-Chief: Latanya Sweeney
    This online-only Journal, started in 2004 and operated by Carnegie Mellon University, is a forum for the publication of original current research in privacy technology. It encourages the submission of any material dealing primarily with the technological aspects of privacy or with the privacy aspects of technology, which may include analysis of the interaction between policy and technology or the technological implications of legal decisions. More information can be found at
  • The Kluwer International Series on ADVANCES IN INFORMATION SECURITY.
    The purpose of the Advances in Information Security book series is to establish the state of the art and set the course for future research in information security. The scope of this series includes not only all aspects of computer and network security, but related areas such as fault tolerance and software assurance. The series will serve as a central source of reference for information security research and developments. The series aims to publish thorough and cohesive overviews on specific topics in Information Security, as well as works that are larger in scope than survey articles and that will contain more detailed background information. The series also provides a single point of coverage of advanced and timely topics and a forum for topics that may not have reached a level of maturity to warrant a comprehensive textbook. Prospective Authors or Editors: If you have an idea for a book that would fit in this series, we would welcome the opportunity to review your proposal. Should you wish to discuss any potential project further or receive specific information regarding book proposal requirements, please contact either Sushil Jajodia (,703-993-1653) or Lance Wobus (, 781-681-0602)
