Submitted manuscripts must be complete (rather than proposals or sample chapters) and in an electronic format (preferably as an unformatted Microsoft Word document). Authors are asked to describe the manuscript in a cover letter and indicate the expected audience. Submissions are evaluated for originality, contribution to a significant national security issue, and appropriateness for the overall publishing program of NDU Press. Articles for JFQ should be between 2,500 and 5,500 words.
Manuscripts submitted to NDU Press must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.
With the exception of contracted writing commissioned by INSS or NDU Press, no payment or royalty can be made to authors.
