Review journals are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results.
Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
The concept of "review article" is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed
The Journal of Information Technology & Software Engineering is a Review Journal. The basic principles of Information Security are: Key concepts, Integrity, Availability, Authenticity and Non-repudiation. The three core principles of Information security are: confidentiality, integrity and availability. These are considered the basic building blocks of information security. Nine majorly accepted principles of Information securtiy were proposed by OECD's Guidelines for the Security of Information Systems and Networks: awareness, responsibility, response, ethics, democracy, risk assessment, security design and implementation, security management and reassessment. Information Integrity is referred to the confidentiality of information and data during its transit. Information availability is the uninterrupted access to data at all times and prevent outages due to power cuts and during high network traffic. It is essentially the maintenance, storage and retrieval of data smoothly whenever needed. Information authenticity is the assurance that the data being received at one of the ends is authentic and genuine. In organizations where confidentiality is a key aspect, like e-businesses, e-transactions, etc, a digital signature certificate is issued that assures the authenticity of the data being viewed. Non-repudiation is the legal obligation of a party of accepting to have sent or received a message.
