WAR STUDIES JOURNAL | Department of History


The War Studies Journal is a scholarly venue for those who want to write about the big topics of warfare, strategy, campaigns, battles, theory, military revolutions, and technological change. It is a journal for scholars who wish to read the best of contemporary scholarship and debate military history in a peer-reviewed forum that will appear annually in print and online. The objective of the editorial board is to publish cutting-edge military history from antiquity to the contemporary period that informs the past, present, and future. Our goal is to create a space for the serious discussion of Military History including its diplomatic, strategic, operational, tactical, and technological aspects both chronologically and thematically. The editorial board solicits submissions from leading scholars, experts, and early-career professionals on wide-ranging topics that will interest specialists in multiple disciplines and across multiple eras. Each volume will contain original research articles, one essay that explores the historical antecedents of a contemporary issue, and a significant number of book reviews.

UNT Press will announce the Journal with an online web listing around November 2023, at which time subscriptions will open with a direct link for subscribers.
