Stylized Image of the Word Editorial

APRIL 2009

Welcome to the first issue of JIW for 2009. Firstly, Yin looks at the use of the Internet in the 2000-2008 Intifada. This is followed by Baines who examines the use of fear in information operations campaigns and compares this with research on marketing communications. Next Sentse and Jansen examine the use of fusion cells in counter-insurgency. Finally, Veerasamy proposes a high level framework for contextualising cyber-terrorism.

If you wish to contribute to JIW please send your papers to me. The instructions for formatting your papers can be found in the Notes to Authors section at:

I have great pleasure in announcing that from 2010, Dr Leigh Armistead will take over as editor of JIW.  I am sure that most of you will be familiar with Leigh through his books or the International Conference in Information Warfare which he chairs. There will be more information about this at a later stage.
