Call for Submissions for Spring 2022 Journal of Advanced Military Studies
Marine Corps University Press publishes JAMS on topics of concern to the Marine Corps and the Department of Defense through the lens of various disciplines, including international relations, political science, security studies, and political economics.
Our Spring 2022 issue will have a broadly construed theme:
Military Response to National Emergencies and Natural Disasters
The editors are seeking articles on topics related to the military’s role in responding to national emergencies and natural disasters. Articles can cover these topics from along the broad spectrum of contemporary and historical examples, including both foreign and domestic uses of the military in disaster-response scenarios and deployment during national or international crises and emergencies.
Articles may focus on any branch of the military as well as any civil-military partnerships or comparisons of national responses by other countries’ militaries. Examples from particular disasters or national emergencies are welcome, including analyses of the responses and their short- and long-term impacts. Recent examples include the global response to the Ebola virus in Africa; the national response to hurricanes, wildfires, and tornadoes; local and national responses to demonstrations; the use of the military in funding and developing a vaccine for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19); and the use of the National Guard to help states in their responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Journal of Advanced Military Studies is a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal, and submissions should be 4,000–10,000 words, footnoted, and formatted according to the Chicago Manual of Style (17th edition). Junior faculty and advanced graduate students are encouraged to submit. Marine Corps University Press is also looking for book reviewers from international studies, political science, and contemporary history fields.
To receive a copy of the journal or to discuss an article idea or book review, please contact the editors at MCU_Press@usmcu.edu. Please submit articles for consideration by 1 January 2022.
