Journal of Military Learning

Call for Papers

The Journal of Military Learning (JML) is a peer-reviewed semi-annual publication that seeks to support the military’s effort to improve education and training for the U.S. Army and the overall Profession of Arms.

The Journal of Military Learning invites practitioners, researchers, academics, and military professionals to submit manuscripts that address the issues and challenges of adult education and training, such as education technology, adult learning models and theory, distance learning, training development, and other subjects relevant to the field.

Book reviews of published relevant works are also encouraged.

Our inaugural edition of the Journal of Military Learning will be published online by Army University Press in May 2017.

We are now accepting manuscripts for the October 2017 edition.

Manuscripts should be submitted to by June 30, 2017.

We are particularly interested in articles addressing competency based education, the theme of this year’s Army University education symposium to be held in June 2017.

Submissions should be between 3,500 and 5,000 words and supported by research, evident throughthe citation of sources.

For detailed author submission guidelines, see below. For additional information call 913-684-9331 or send an email.

JML 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.
