'Military Review' Calls for Articles on China

Editors of "Military Review," a bimonthly on-line and print periodical published by U.S. Army's Army University Press, are calling for articles related to the topic of China as peacetime competitor and potential wartime adversary to the United States. Deadline is April 30, 2019.

Generally, Military Review publishes articles between 3,500 to 5,000 words in length—content that is supported by research and detailed endnote sourcing. The journal also publishes "insight" articles of similar length, which provide insights derived from personal experience and observation.

The publication is also a potential market for book reviews (2,000 to 3,000 words), and occasional film reviews and war poetry. The publication acquires first publication rights in Military Review in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and any other editions of Military Review, including online editions. Authors also grant permissions to the U.S. Army's Combined Arms Center "the right to reproduce and use the article for training and other official purposes." Simultaneous submissions are not accepted.

Editors call attention to the National Security Strategy published December 2017, available as a PDF here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/NSS-Final-12-18-2017-0905.pdf. Prompts suggested by the editors include, but are not limited to:

  • China’s “new colonialism” in Africa, Central Asia, or elsewhere
  • China’s strategic efforts to control global maritime trade routes and ports
  • Money as a weapon system: China’s use of economic measures to advance policy objectives
  • China’s measures to achieve totalitarian control of its citizenry, with emphasis on control through technology; contributions of Google and other international information consortia to this effort
  • China’s diaspora: how China employs ethnic-Chinese populations in foreign countries to advance policy objectives
  • China’s exploitation of the U.S. and Western European education systems?
  • China’s program to steal U.S. and Western technology; how it can be stopped
