Journal name change for 2007

IET Information Security was previously published as IEE Proceedings Information Security. Following the merger on March 31st 2006 between the IEE (Institution of Electrical Engineers) and the IIE (The Institution of Incorporated Engineers) to form the Institution of Engineering and Technology, the IEE Proceedings suite of journals have changed name for 2007 to reflect the fact that they are now published by the Institution of Engineering and Technology. IET Information Security starts from Volume 1, Issue 1 from March 2007 onwards. All other benefits of publishing in the journal, including our worldwide readership and database coverage, remain unchanged.

Online subscribers to IET Information Security can also access all backfile issues of IEE Proceedings Information Security from 2005-2006 as part of their current online subscription.
