The International Journal of Critical Infrastructure Protection (IJCIP) was launched in 2008, with the primary aim of publishing scholarly papers of the highest quality in all areas of critical infrastructure protection. Of particular interest are articles that weave science, technology, law and policy to craft sophisticated yet practical solutions for securing assets in the various critical infrastructure sectors. These critical infrastructure sectors include: information technology, telecommunications, energy, banking and finance, transportation systems, chemicals, critical manufacturing, agriculture and food, defense industrial base, public health and health care, national monuments and icons, drinking water and water treatment systems, commercial facilities, dams, emergency services, nuclear reactors, materials and waste, postal and shipping, and government facilities. Protecting and ensuring the continuity of operation of critical infrastructure assets are vital to national security, public health and safety, economic vitality, and societal wellbeing.

The scope of the journal includes, but is not limited to:

1. Analysis of security challenges that are unique or common to the various infrastructure sectors.
2. Identification of core security principles and techniques that can be applied to critical infrastructure protection.
3. Elucidation of the dependencies and interdependencies existing between infrastructure sectors and techniques for mitigating the devastating effects of cascading failures.
4. Creation of sophisticated, yet practical, solutions, for critical infrastructure protection that involve mathematical, scientific and engineering techniques, economic and social science methods, and/or legal and public policy constructs.

A unique aspect of the journal is the publication of opinion pieces from leading international scholars and high-ranking government officials that tackle controversial issues related to critical infrastructure protection that are of global significance.

The International Journal of Critical Infrastructure Protection is the official journal of International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Working Group 11.10 on Critical Infrastructure Protection.
