Recent grumbles in the comments to the recent FC papers post brought to mind an old journal called JIBC. I'd lost my "subscription" reminder to it many years ago and I guess I just assumed it had stopped. But, no, a little googling and I found it: the Journal of Internet Banking and Commerce. It is still pushing out 2-3 editions per year.
Back in the very early years, JIBC was there and publishing before things like the Financial Cryptography term had even been coined by Bob Hettinga. So I'm happy to come back and cheer them into the last year of their decade, given that the the first edition of this venerable journal was January 1996!
Some highlights include a regular column by Dave Birch, an article asking Why does SSL dominate the e-payment market ?, and an article predicting the return of digital cash in Waves Of Multimedia Banking Development.
JIBC published my second paper in 1997, the Critique on the 1994 EU Report on Prepaid Cards. Sometimes papers work out well, the lessons in that one are still useful in comparison to where Europe is now. So say I, at least.Posted by iang at January 1, 2005 07:17 PM | TrackBack
