International Journal of Critical Infrastructures (IJCIS)
International Journal of Critical Infrastructures (IJCIS) incorporates the
International Journal of Infrastructures.
IJCIS is an inter-disciplinary and refereed journal that provides a
professional and scholarly forum for cross-learning between different
scientific and technological disciplines, between business and economic, as
well as between societal and managerial disciplines in the area of critical
infrastructures. Critical infrastructures are networks for the provision of
telecommunication and information services, energy services (electrical
power, natural gas, oil and heat), water supply, transportation of people
and goods, banking and financial services, government services and emergency
By addressing commonalities and interrelationships between the various
sectors, IJCIS enables scientists, policy makers and professionals in the
field to learn from experiences in other countries and in other
infrastructure sectors and to use these experiences for understanding and
steering critical infrastructure development.
IJCIS aims to provide an authoritative source of information and an unique
international forum in the field of Risk and Vulnerability Assessment and
Management of Vital Societal Systems exposed to antropogenic and natural
threats. It intends to establish channels of communication and to
disseminate the best practice, knowledge and state of the art science, and
stakeholders involvement between policy makers, practitioners, researchers
and academia working in the field.
IJCIS publishes: original papers, review papers; case studies; conference
reports; briefs and reports and news; book review and notes. To encourage
young students, at undergraduate and graduate levels, the Student Section
will be open for the first time as a platform for the future specialists to
promote new and fresh ideas and projects into the internationally reviewed
literature. Commentaries on papers and reports published in the Journal are
encouraged. Special Issues devoted to important topics in risk assessment
and vulnerability management of vital systems/ critical infrastructures and
related topics, will be published occasionally.
