The Journal of Information Warfare was created to provide a forum for academics and practitioners in the broad discipline of information warfare and operations. Our audience and contributors include professionals from military and government agencies, industries, and academic institutions. JIW covers the full gambit of topics from physical destruction of systems to the psychological aspects of information use and protection.
The journal provides access to some of the latest pivotal thinking in areas of information warfare and cyber security. When JIW was first published in September 2001, information warfare was a topic deemed to be on the periphery of military studies. As tactics and potential sources of attack have changed, cyber security has become a primary focus of those studies. JIW draws together the latest in research and thinking to deliver high quality, highly technical papers on cutting-edge information warfare and cyber warfare topics.
