JCS Special Issue

Submit your manuscript for fast-track review at JCS

Authors whose papers appear at the workshop are invited to submit a revised version to a special issue of the Journal of Cybersecurity (JCS).

JCS is an interdisciplinary open access journal published by Oxford University Press.  Revised papers will undergo an additional round of peer review after the workshop. And accepted papers will appear in the special issue. Please note that publication charges must be paid to facilitate open access, but a publishing fund is available to authors whose institutions cannot pay. For more information please see https://academic.oup.com/cybersecurity/pages/general_instructions.

  • Upon submission, please include a comprehensive summary of the differences between the version submitted to WEIS’23 and the improved version integrating feedback from the first round of review as well as comments received during the conference, as existing WEIS reviews will be used as a starting point.
