The Journal of Military Learning (JML) is a peer-reviewed semiannual publication that supports efforts to improve education and training for the U.S. Army and the overall Profession of Arms.

We are now accepting manuscripts for the October 2017 edition and subsequent editions. The JML 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. Submissions related to competency-based learning will be given special consideration.

Submissions should be between 3,500 and 5,000 words and supported by research, evident through the citation of sources. Scholarship must conform to commonly accepted research standards such as described in Kate L. Turabian, A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, 8th edition.

Do you have a “Best Practice” to share on how to optimize learning outcomes for military learners? Please submit a one- to two- page summary of the practice to share with the military learning enterprise. Short book reviews of published relevant works are also encouraged.

Manuscripts should be submitted to by June 30, 2017. For detailed author submission guidelines, see below. For additional information call 913-684-9331 or send an email.

Author Submission Guidelines

Manuscripts should contain between 3,500 to 5,000 words in the body text and be double-spaced in a standard font. Documentation must conform to the endnotes style in Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition, chapter 14, but no bibliography is needed. Because of complications with layout software, papers are not to contain any automatic endnotes; all coded endnotes must be replaced with manually formatted notes before submission.

Manuscripts should be submitted as a Microsoft Word file. They must include a one-paragraph abstract.

Do not submit manuscripts that have been published elsewhere. Do not submit manuscripts that are being considered for publication elsewhere.

A manuscript that does not conform to the guidelines above will not be considered for publication in the Journal of Military Learning (JML).

The editors may suggest changes in the interest of clarity and economy of expression; such changes will be made in 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) not protected by copyright with their essays but to limit them to those needed to demonstrate their major points. 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 U.S. government publication, the JML does not have copyright protection; articles become public domain. Manuscripts published in the JML could be published later in other Army publications.
