InterAgency Journal

The InterAgency Journal (IAJ) is published semiannually by the Command and General Staff College Foundation Press for the Arthur D. Simons Center for the Study of Interagency Cooperation. The InterAgency Journal provides a forum to inform a broad audience on matters pertaining to tactical and operational issues of cooperation, collaboration, and/or coordination among and between various governmental departments, agencies, and offices. Each issue of the InterAgency Journal contains a variety of articles pertaining to interagency topics including national security, counterterrorism, stabilization and reconstruction operations, and disaster preparation and response.

The Simons Center is always looking for authors to contribute manuscripts reflecting their experience, study, and insight. Prospective authors are encouraged to submit their works after a review of the Simons Center Writer’s Submission Guidelines, the Simons Center’s Style Guide, and the Simons Center Interagency Research Topics list.
