Call for Papers: PSYOP Special Edition of Special Warfare Magazine

To the PSYOP Community of Interest,

The 2d Quarter, FY19 Special Warfare magazine will be a special edition dedicated to Psychological Operations in recognition of the 100th Anniversary of the Regiment. The PSYOP Commandant is soliciting articles from the community of interest for this edition. The submission standards are detailed below by the Special Warfare Editorial Staff. All submissions will be reviewed by the PSYOP Commandant to select articles for the edition. The intent is to select a broad range of topics of interest that are representative of the Regiment’s lineage, past achievements, current capabilities and operations, emerging trends, and conceptual future force.

Submission guidelines:

  1. Manuscripts should be 2,500 to 3,000 words in length.
  2. Include a cover letter.
  3. Submit a complete biography with author contact information (i.e., complete mailing address, telephone, fax, e-mail address).
  4. Manuscripts should be submitted in plain text, double-spaced and in a digital file.
  5. End notes should accompany works in lieu of embedded footnotes. Please consult The Chicago Manual of Style (15th Edition), for footnote style.
  6. Submit graphics, tables and charts with source references in separate files from the manuscript (no embedded graphics). Special Warfare may accept high-resolution (300 dpi or greater) digital photos; be sure to include a caption and photographer’s credit. Prints and 35 mm transparencies are also acceptable. Photos will be returned, if possible.

All submissions will be reviewed in a timely manner. Special Warfare reserves the right to edit all contributions. Special Warfare will attempt to afford authors an opportunity to review the final edited version; requests for changes must be received by the given deadline.

Articles that require security clearance should be cleared by the author’s chain of command prior to submission.

No payment or honorarium is authorized for publication of articles. Material appearing in Special Warfare is considered to be in the public domain and is not protected by copyright unless it is accompanied by the author’s copyright notice. Published works may be reprinted, except where copyrighted, provided credit is given to Special Warfare and the authors.

Submit articles with all attachments for consideration to:

Mr. Al Lunt, Chief PSYOP Doctrine Division, and MSG Erik Schildt, PSYOP Commandant Operations NCO,

Submission deadline is NLT 5 Oct 18. This suspense is to allow for internal review before submission to the Special Warfare Editorial Staff.
