The OIC-CERT Journal of Cyber Security (OIC-CERT JCS) is now accepting submissions for Volume 5 of the OIC-CERT JCS.


The OIC-CERT JCS is committed to publish papers from a wide variety of cyber security disciplines range from the technical field, such as engineering, computer science, or information systems, to the non-technical descriptions of technology and management from the point of view of cyber security fundamentals and applications.


The OIC-CERT JCS is opened to all research paradigms, empirical or conceptual. Selected papers should present novel and broad important data, syntheses, or concepts. Publication in the OIC-CERT JCS should merit recognition by a wider scientific, practitioner community and the general public, which is beyond that provided by specialty journals. Therefore, the papers should be interesting and comprehensible to all other related disciplines and contribute to the area of cyber security.
