Call for Papers on Cyber Security and Public Policy
I/S (www.is-journal.org), a new journal published jointly by Ohio State University's Moritz College of Law and Carnegie Mellon University's H. John Heinz III School for Public Policy and Management, is planning to devote its Winter 2006 issue to research on cybersecurity and public policy. Contributions from all disciplines are welcome, although their goal is to have the maximum effect on regulators, legislators, and other public policy makers in the field of computer security. Proposals should offer original analytical work that has not and will not be previously published in another venue, although it may be based on previously published research findings. Completed articles should be roughly 10,000 words each. (Proposals for shorter, less formal essays, of no more than 5,000 words, that represent advocacy or more preliminary analysis, are also welcome.) Manuscripts are due October 1, 2006. Please forward proposals as soon as possible to Sol Bermann, Managing Editor of I/S, at . The proposal need not be longer than 1-3 pages, but should indicate whether a completed manuscript could be ready by October 1. For more information visit their website (listed above).
