Guidance for Authors

The Australian Defence Force Journal seeks articles on a wide range of defence and security matters, such as strategic studies, security and international relations. Normally, articles will only be considered for publication if they are current and have not been published elsewhere. In addition, the Journal does not pay for articles but a certificate is awarded by the Board of Management for the article judged to be the best in each issue.

The Layout

Articles need to be submitted electronically and typed in MS Word format without the use of templates or paragraph numbers (essay style). Headings throughout are acceptable (and contributors should view previous issues for style). Length should be between 3500 and 5000 words. Please ‘spell check’ the document with Australian English before sending.

Articles should contain endnotes, bibliography and brief biographical details of the author.

Endnotes

  • for articles are required in the style:

              Edward D. Mansfield, ‘The concentration of capabilities and the onset of war’, Journal
              of Conflict Resolution
, Vol. 36, No. 1, 1992, pp. 3–24.

  • for monographs are required in the style:

              Edward D. Mansfield, The Concentration of Capabilities, Sydney: Allen & Unwin, 1998.

References or bibliography

  • for articles are required in the style:

             Mansfield, Edward D., ‘The concentration of capabilities and the onset of war’, Journal
             of Conflict Resolution, Vol. 36, No. 1, 1992.

  • for monographs are required in the style:

             Mansfield, Edward D., The Concentration of Capabilities, Sydney: Allen & Unwin, 1998.

Tables, maps and photographs are acceptable but must be of high enough quality to reproduce in high resolution. Photographs must be at least 300 ppi in TIF format and obviously pertinent to the article.

The Review Process

Once an article is submitted, it is reviewed by an independent referee with some knowledge of the subject. Comments from the reviewer are passed via the Editor to the author. Once updated, the article is presented to the Australian Defence Force Journal Board of Management and, if accepted, will be published in the next Journal. Be advised, it may take quite a while from submission to print.

Authors with suitable articles are invited to contact the Editor via email at:
publications@defence.adc.edu.au

Authors accept the Editor may make minor editorial adjustments without reference back to the author, however, the theme or intent of the article will not be changed.
