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 The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition, chapter 14, but no bibliography is needed. Because of complications with layout software, papers are not to contain any automatic endnotes; replace all coded endnotes 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 or are under consideration for publication elsewhere.
The Journal of Military Learning (JML) will not consider for publication a manuscript failing to conform to the guidelines above.
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 of article.
Authors are encouraged to supply relevant artwork with their essays (e.g., maps, charts, line drawings, and photographs). Artwork is limited to that which supports the major points of the manuscript. Illustrations may be submitted in the following formats: PDF, PNG, EPS, SVG, JPEG, PowerPoint, or TIFF. The author must obtain permission to use any copyrighted material.
As a U.S. government publication, the JML does not have copyright protection; articles become public domain. Other Army publications could republished manuscripts published in the JML.
