The Journal of Intelligence and Cyber Security publishes research articles and thought-provoking essays of the highest quality on a wide range of subjects related to intelligence, cyber security, and related topics. While the paramount importance of intelligence is obvious, cyberattacks targeting military and civilian operations rank among the greatest threats facing the world today. Edited by Professor Neil Kent of the University of Cambridge, the journal contributes to our understanding of these vital issues in a rapidly changing world. It is international in scope and supported by leading practitioners working in related areas at prestigious institutions around the world and in the global private sector. The journal received startup funding from the Cyber Conflict Documentation Project, a U.S.-based non-political, non-commercial, public service think tank led by J. D. Work, an experienced intelligence professional who has taught at Columbia University and now holds the Bren Chair in Cyber Conflict and Security at the Marine Corps University.

The journal benefits from the generous sponsorship of Omina Technologies, an ethical artificial intelligence company based in Europe and North America, the Cadbury Foundation, a UK charitable organization, and Mr. Andreas Nilsson. The journal appears online and feature new articles on a rolling basis. Academica Press will publish an annual hardcover volume of each issue’s articles in its pioneering international relations series, St. James’s Studies in World Affairs. The Journal of Intelligence and Cyber Security will appeal to members of the military, intelligence, and business communities, as well as to academic specialists.
