About the Journal

Privacy Studies Journal (PSJ) is a fully open access, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal published by the Danish National Research Foundation Centre for Privacy Studies, University of Copenhagen. It has an international editorial board with members representing a broad range of academic fields.

PSJ spans the present and the past, and envisions the future. Featuring original, high-quality research on privacy in its broadest sense and with the human component in focus, we welcome contributions that take privacy and the private as catalysts for analysis of, for example:

  • Architecture and the built environment
  • Art
  • Behaviour
  • Bodily practices
  • Business and operational aspects
  • Crisis and crises management
  • Economics
  • Health
  • Ideas
  • Information and communication technologies
  • Law
  • Literature
  • Material culture
  • Philosophy
  • Policy
  • Power
  • Religion
  • Societal structures
  • Space (domestic, urban, professional …)
  • Technological innovation

PSJ provides scholars with a thoughtful and academically vigorous forum for research into privacy and the private. By bringing together contemporary, historical, and future perspectives and by keeping an open mind to potential cross-pollination between research fields PSJ sets new scholarly standards, offering an opportunity to generate insights that go beyond disciplinary boundaries.

PSJ accepts submissions on a rolling basis. Please discuss proposals for special issues with the editor-in-chief.
