JFQ is published for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff by the Institute for National Strategic Studies, National Defense University, to promote understanding of the integrated employment of land, sea, air, space, and special operations forces. The journal focuses on joint doctrine, coalition warfare, contingency planning, combat operations conducted by the unified commands, and joint force development. The opinions, conclusions, and recommendations expressed or implied within JFQ are those of the contributors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Department of Defense or any other agency of the Federal Government. The editors invite articles and other contributions on joint warfighting, interservice issues that support jointness, and topics of common interest to the Armed Forces. Please direct all editorial communications to the address provided below.
Note to Contributors
JFQ welcomes submissions from members of the Armed Forces as well as both defense analysts and academic specialists from this country and abroad, including foreign military officers and civilians. There is no required length for contributions, but manuscripts of 3,000 to 5,000 words are appropriate. Other submissions, however, to include letters, commentary and brief essays are invited. Reproductions of supporting material (such as maps and photos) should be submitted with the manuscript; do not send originals. Unsolicited book reviews are generally not accepted. All submissions to JFQ must be accompanied by a covering letter which states that the manuscript has not been previously published and is not being submitted simultaneously to any other journal. In addition, the letter must include the author's full name (including military grade, service/component, and assignment if applicable), a complete postal address (with Zip code), and a work telephone number. Neither facsimile nor e-mail manuscripts will be accepted as formal submissions. All unsolicited manuscripts are reviewed, a process which may take two or three months. To facilitate review, provide two copies of the manuscript together with a brief summary. Place personal or biographical data on a separate sheet of paper and do not identify the author (or authors) in the body of the text. Follow any acceptable style guide in preparing the manuscript, but endnotes rather than footnotes should always be used. Both the manuscript and the footnotes should be typed in double-space with one inch margins. All manuscripts should be paginated, If possible submit the manuscript on a disk together with the typed version. While both 3.5 and 5.25 inch disks in various formats can be processed, WordPerfect is preferred (disks will not be returned unless requested).
JFQ reserves the right to edit contributions to meet space limitations and conform to the journal's style and format. Proofs of articles accepted for publication are not normally returned to authors for review.
Unless evidence of prior clearance is provided, manuscripts selected for publication which are contributed by members of the U.S. Armed Forces or employees of the Federal Government are forwarded to the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs to undergo security review. No honorarium or other form of payment is authorized for the publication of articles submitted by servicemembers or U.S. Government employees.
Information on the submission of contributions is available by phoning or mailing the address below.
