Journal of Cyber Policy Call for Papers

Publication in 2018

Journal of Cyber Policy

The Journal of Cyber Policy, Chatham House’s peer reviewed journal dedicated to emerging cyber policy challenges, is soliciting papers for publication in 2018.  There are three issues of the Journal of Cyber Policy a year, each covering a range of cyber policy areas. 

Whilst the Editorial team welcomes submissions on all cyber policy related topics, in 2018 there will be a focus on the following topics:

  • Geopolitics, political use and misuse of the internet including interference in democratic processes, propaganda and fake news, state-sponsored hacking and its role in warfare;
  • Education, skills, and raising awareness of cybersecurity among the population;
  • Privacy and surveillance;
  • Measuring the internet;
  • Cultural and linguistic diversity in cyberspace.

Interested researchers can submit either (a) completed manuscripts or (b) paper outlines or abstracts.  Completed manuscripts should be between 4,000 and 8,000 words (not including notes and references).  Paper outlines or abstracts should be no more than 250 words and should sketch out the key ideas in the proposed paper; If the journal editors think that the suggested paper described in the outline/abstract would be a good fit for the volume, they will commission the full paper.
