  • IEEE Security & Privacy – available in IEEE

IEEE Security & Privacy’s primary objective is to stimulate and track advances in security, privacy, and dependability and present these advances in a form that can be useful to a broad cross-section of the professional community—ranging from academic researchers to industry practitioners. It provides articles with both a practical and research bent by the top thinkers in the field of security and privacy, along with case studies, surveys, tutorials, columns, and in-depth interviews and podcasts for the information security industry.

  • Journal of Information Privacy and Security – available in EBSCO, Proquest, ABI-Inform

The Journal of Information Privacy and Security (JIPS) serves as a reliable source on issues of information privacy and security for both academics and practitioners. The journal is a refereed journal of high quality that seeks support from academicians, industry experts and specific government agencies. The journal focuses on publishing articles that address the paradoxical nature of privacy versus security amidst current global conditions. It is increasingly important that various constituents of information begin to understand their role in finding the delicate balance of security and privacy.

The Journal of Privacy and Confidentiality is an open-access multi-disciplinary journal whose purpose is to facilitate the coalescence of research methodologies and activities in the areas of privacy, confidentiality, and disclosure limitation. The JPC seeks to publish a wide range of research and review papers, not only from academia, but also from government (especially official statistical agencies) and industry, and to serve as a forum for exchange of views, discussion, and news.

PoPETs is the journal that publishes papers accepted to the Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS). PETS brings together privacy and anonymity experts from around the world to discuss recent advances and new perspectives. PETS addresses the design and realization of privacy services for the Internet and other data systems and communication networks.

International Data Privacy Law (IDPL) is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes papers on data protection and privacy law topics from around the world. This includes coverage in Europe (including the GDPR) and other regions such as Africa, Asia-Pacific, and the Americas, as well as at the international level.

The Journal of Information Technology & Privacy Law (JITPL) is focused on providing current, relevant legal analysis regarding international information technology and privacy law. JITPL strives to publish articles that are both scholarly and practical and achieves this goal by involving international insight, keeping abreast of evolving technology, and including input from several viewpoints including academia, government, business, and private practice.

The Journal of Information Technology & Privacy Law (JITPL) is an honors program at The John Marshall Law School, and as such, also focuses on improving student writing skills through a vigorous candidacy semester. During the candidacy semester, students produce a case note or a comment that may be published by the journal. Also during the candidacy semester, candidates help edit articles scheduled for journal publication.


Future of Privacy Forum

Future of Privacy Forum is a nonprofit organization that serves as a catalyst for privacy leadership and scholarship, advancing principled data practices in support of emerging technologies. FPF brings together industry, academics, consumer advocates, and other thought leaders to explore the challenges posed by technological innovation and develop privacy protections, ethical norms, and workable business practices. FPF helps fill the void in the “space not occupied by law” which exists due to the speed of technology development. As “data optimists,” we believe that the power of data for good is a net benefit to society, and that it can be well-managed to control risks and offer the best protections and empowerment to consumers and individuals.

International Association of Privacy Professionals
