Call for Papers: Naval Integration and the Future of Naval Warfare


The Fall 2020 MCU Journal, published by Marine Corps University Press, will address elements of the Commandant's Planning Guidance, particularly the concept of naval integration and what it means for the Services, especially the Marine Corps. Further, authors may discuss how future warfare will play out based on these concepts.


The editors are interested in exploring the topic from a variety of perspectives, including those for and against, an analysis of past and current attempts, and what naval integration may mean for the future of the Corps.


Authors are encouraged to explore the capabilities that will be required to shift from a traditional power projection model to a persistent forward presence and how the Marine Corps can exploit its positional advantage while defending critical regions, such as those in the South China Sea or the Arctic and Antarctic.


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.
