Call for Submissions: Marine Corps University Journal (MCU Journal) - Economics of Defense

Angela Anderson's picture


Marine Corps University Press (MCUP) publishes the MCU Journal 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 2019 issue will have a broadly construed theme: 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.
