InterAgency Journal


The InterAgency Journal (IAJ) is a refereed national security studies journal, and is published quarterly by the Command and General Staff College Foundation Press for the Simons Center for Interagency Cooperation. The IAJ 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 IAJ contains a number of articles covering a variety of topics, including national security, counterterrorism, stabilization and reconstruction operations, and disaster preparation and response.

The Simons Center will consider all article submissions for the IAJ that involve interagency issues, but is specifically looking for well-written, persuasive articles that espouse views on contemporary interagency topics that improve interagency operations and add to the development of interagency leaders.

Prospective authors are encouraged to submit their works after a review of the Simons Center Writer’s Submission Guidelines and the Simons Center Interagency Research Topics list. Manuscripts may be submitted online through the Contribute Content page or by contacting editor@thesimonscenter.org.

Individuals wishing to receive hard copies of the Simons Center’s InterAgency Journal should contact editor@thesimonscenter.org. To receive updates about the release of new Simons Center publications, Simons Center news and events, and other interagency news and events via email, please sign up for email alerts. – An email alert sign up is available on most every page of the Simons Center website.
