Cybersecurity Skills Journal
Paper Development Workshop (PDW)
Special Issue on the NICE Framework
Submissions accepted on a rolling basis until April 14th.
Early submission ensures that your paper receives the most support and assistance from peer reviewers.
Why should you attend the Special Issue PDW?
Do you have an idea or a starting draft for a paper on effective cybersecurity practice or instruction? Have you presented research at a conference but have yet to publish your study in a journal? Do you have a paper that has been rejected from a journal and you’re not sure whether, and how, to proceed? If you answered YES to any of these questions, this PDW is for you!
In this Virtual Brown Bag Lunch Workshop, you will have an opportunity to work with members of the Cybersecurity Skills Journal Editorial Board and Peer Review Panel members in virtual breakout rooms during which prospective authors may present an idea for, or draft of, a manuscript reporting evidence-based practices, theoretical frameworks, or case studies of skilled application or instruction of cybersecurity tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs). Our focus for this year's PDW sessions is developing manuscripts for publication in the 2020 Special Issue on the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NICE Framework, for short).
When you register for the session, we ask that you submit a structured abstract describing your research. For information on the elements of a structured abstract please access the Cybersecurity Skills Journal web page at: csj.nationalcyberwatch.org.
The purpose of the PDW is two-fold. First, we aim to provide participants insights into the actionable steps they should take to make their research more relevant for cybersecurity practitioners, instructors, and/or researchers. Second, we provide practitioner and scholar authors with developmental feedback on their current projects related to advancing the assessment, development or implementation of cybersecurity skills. While we hope that the papers will eventually be submitted to CSJ, the purpose of the PDW is broader, namely to improve the quality of cybersecurity research, to help develop and disseminate effective practices, and to bring practitioners and scholars into the conversation around skilled performance in cybersecurity.
