Author Submission Guidelines

Ideal manuscripts are generally between 3,500 to 5,000 words in length, are double-spaced, and conform to The Chicago Manual of Style (16th edition). Sources should be cited using endnotes with citations that meet formats established in the Chicago style manual. Because of complications with layout software, endnotes are not to be written using any automatic endnote feature; all endnotes are to be manually formatted.

Manuscripts should be submitted as a Microsoft Word file.

Manuscripts are to include an abstract of not more than one page.

A manuscript that does not conform to the guidelines above will not be considered for publication in the JML.

It should be understood that your manuscript has not been published elsewhere, nor being considered for publication elsewhere.

The editors may suggest changes in the interest of clarity and economy of expression; such changes will not be made without consultation with the author. The editors are the final arbiters of usage, grammar, and length.

Authors are encouraged to supply relevant artwork (maps, charts, line drawings, and photographs) with their essays. Illustrations may be submitted in the following formats: PDF, JPEG, or TIFF. The author is responsible for obtaining permission to publish any copyrighted material.

As a US government publication, the Journal of Military Learning does not have copyright protection. Accepted manuscripts will be published in the JML and could be published later in other Army publications.
