For this special collection, we solicit papers at the intersection of philosophy, information security, and philosophy of science. There are multiple under-explored ways in which these fields intersect.

Suggested, but not exclusive, topics include:

  • Foundations of knowledge in information security 
  • Implications of philosophy (epistemology, ontology, causality) for information security 
  • Implications of information security for philosophy 
  • Mathematical and logical modelling of phenomena in information security
  • Modelling: what makes for a good model in information security, and how models are synthesized from data
  • Methodology of study-design in information security
  • The status of simulation in information security
  • Adversarial agents and interference with knowledge or evidence collection
  • Comparative studies or reviews of different knowledge structures or standards in information security

Please read the author guidelines and select 'Special Collection on Philosophy of Information' when submitting your manuscript.
