We believe the CSJ special issue will become a valuable resource that is highly cited by future analyses of effective frameworks, techniques, and tools that raise the cybersecurity capability maturity of the workforce.

The Cybersecurity Skills Journal (CSJ): Practice and Research is calling for every and anyone to submit abstracts, meaning just ideas, thoughts or experiences, related to workforce capabilities especially as they relate to the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education Workforce Framework (NICE Framework).
The CSJ is an international, quarterly published and peer-reviewed journal that aims to advance knowledge and practice in all areas of the cybersecurity field through open and free dissemination of research on evidence-based practices and private access to digital tools and practice guides. Published articles are available globally to over 300 institutions and 35,000 potential readers.
Participants can submit abstracts of proposed manuscript ideas that examine the usefulness, benefits and challenges associated with the adoption, adaptation or extension of the NICE framework in cybersecurity which may improve professional practice or learning as well as advance the state of cybersecurity capability maturity.
No prior writing experience is required. Anyone with ideas, experiences or data about what works best to develop cybersecurity skills for the workforce has a chance to get published as long as they follow the following steps.
First, conceive an idea about the NICE Framework. Second, attend the National CyberWatch Center Virtual Brown Bag Lunch webcast on Wednesday, Jan. 15, 1 p.m. ET, to learn what is required to submit an abstract. Third, submit the abstract before Tuesday, Jan. 28. The CSJ will assign a panel of reviewers to assist authors in turning those ideas into published texts.
“The 2020 CSJ special issue will report analyses and reviews of the application and impact of the NICE Framework over the past decade. Our unique developmental approach, in which CSJ Fellows peer review and assist authors, will facilitate dissemination of ideas, experiences, and investigations that can inform cybersecurity practice and research,” said Dr. David H. Tobey, National CyberWatch’s Director of Research and Assessments. “We believe the CSJ special issue will become a valuable resource that is highly cited by future analyses of effective frameworks, techniques, and tools that raise the cybersecurity capability maturity of the workforce.”
Abstracts can be submitted through July 31, but anyone who enters early will benefit from a series of virtual and physical paper development workshops. For more information, visit http://www.nationalcyberwatch.org/cybersecurity-skills-journal-practice-and-research/.
