Call for papers

The first issue of the Journal of Integrated Security Science will be published in December 2016. The journal invites original papers dealing with: 
  • Security risk assessment and management in hazardous industries and critical infrastructures
  • Innovative approaches for threat likelihood assessment
  • Attractiveness analysis
  • Vulnerability assessment under intentional events
  • Consequence analysis with an emphasis on cascading effects in interdependent infrastructures
  • Security-informed decision making and design
  • Optimization of security risk management strategies

Investigation of public terrorist attacks (e.g., terrorist attacks to restaurants) can be considered in the journal if it helps identify the trends, intents, capabilities, capacities, and presence of terrorist groups, which in turn can be used as leading security indicators/precursors for attacks to indutries/infrastructures.

The submission deadline is October 1, 2016.

Upon the acceptance of a paper, the authors will receive a Word template to prepare the article for publication.
