The Marine Corps University Journal, which is an academic journal published by the Marine Corps University Press that encompasses a wide range of topics ranging from political science to military history to international conflicts, is issuing a call for papers for our spring 2019 issue. The spring issue is broadly on the economics of defense. See below for the official announcement. You can contact me directly at or at the email listed in the announcement. We would like to receive articles by the end of December/early January to prepare for peer review.


Economics of Defense

The editors are looking for articles that focus on large or small nation-states, stateless nations, policies, or institutions that speak to some aspect of the costs of making war and peace within an ever-changing global political landscape. Articles may discuss the topic from a historic or contemporary perspective from anywhere along the national security or international relations spectrum.


MCU Journal is a peer-reviewed journal, and submissions should be 4,000–10,000 words, footnoted, and formatted according to Chicago Manual of Style (17th edition). Junior faculty and advanced graduate students are encouraged to submit. MCUP is also looking for book reviewers from international studies, political science, and contemporary history fields.
