International Journal of Smart Security Technologies (IJSST)

Formerly the International Journal of Monitoring and Surveillance Technologies Research (IJMSTR)
Interim Editor-in-Chief: Yassine Maleh (The National Port Agency, Morocco)
Published: Semi-Annually |Established: 2019
|DOI: 10.4018/IJSST


The International Journal of Smart Security Technologies (IJSST) publishes cutting-edge research on current trends, methods, and applications of security technologies, including surveillance and monitoring technologies, and security systems for societal protection, public welfare, and government intelligence, while also addressing the impacts and ethical issues caused by these strategies, including privacy violations. The journal combines multiple disciplines—including engineering, medicine, biology, and computer science—to solve complex problems. As such, the journal promotes hybrid solutions for healthcare, safety, and privacy.
