About the Journal of Cybersecurity Education, Research
and Practice (JCERP)

The mission of JCERP is to be the premier outlet for high-quality information security and cybersecurity related articles of interest to teaching faculty and students.

In order to meet this mission, JCERP solicits high-quality research and practice-oriented articles focused on the development and delivery of InfoSec curriculum, innovation in applied scholarship, and industry best practices in information security in the enterprise for double-blind review and publication.  Published papers will be associated with one of three tracks (education, research or practice).

The journal addresses themes such as pedagogical topics related to:

  • Incident Response and Disaster Recovery
  • Information Security Governance
  • Law and Ethics
  • Experiential Education and Hands-On Labs
  • Digital Forensics and eDiscovery
