In this, just before New Year post, I will take chance to mention one of most respected technical journals in the IT security field. That is Computers & Security – Elsevier, official journal of Technical Committee 11 (computer security) of the International Federation of Information Processing.
From time to time, I serve as reviewer for scientific and technical journals, conferences and papers including Elsevier Computers & Security.
This journal, now in its 21st year, with a new editorial board and new regular features and columns, is essential reading for IT security professionals around the world.
In Journal Citation Report list published by Thompson Reuters, this journal is listed with impact factor for many years. That means that articles published in Elsevier Computers & Security journal are often cited and have important impact on further research and development in area of computer security.
Elsevier, like most scientific publishing companies, relies on effective peer review processes to uphold not only the quality and validity of individual articles, but also the overall integrity of the journals we publish.
On Elsevier web site you can read:
Those who publish with Elsevier can take pride in knowing that the most honored scholars, scientific leaders and educators – from Galileo to Jules Verne to Stephen W. Hawking – have published with Elsevier, as well. In fact, in 2006, 6 Nobel Prize winners had been previously published with Elsevier.
So, if you are planning to publish your important scientific paper in area of security, you definitely should consider Elsevier Computers & Security.
