InterAgency Reports are intended to summarize and publish papers and presentations delivered at workshops, conferences, and other symposia sponsored by the Simons Center for the Study of Interagency Cooperation. These Reports are designed to share the ideas and thoughts presented by participants stimulating discussion, enhancing understanding and contributing to the body of knowledge concerning aspects of interagency cooperation, collaboration, and coordination across diverse United States government agencies and departments.
An InterAgency Study is a sponsored project led by the Simons Center for Interagency Cooperation on a particular issue pertaining to the cooperation, collaboration, and/or coordination between various departments, agencies, and offices of government at the application level involving interagency matters pertaining to national security, counterterrorism, stability and reconstruction operations, and disaster preparation and response. A Study examines a specific aspect requested by the sponsor and identifies issues, presents findings, and offers recommendations.
These are articles, essays, papers, reports, and studies published exclusively on the Simons Center website. Web exclusives are numbered with the year and sequence number for that year with a “W” following (e.g. No. 11-03W).
The Simons Center publishes quality books about issues impacting the cooperation, collaboration, and/or coordination between various departments, agencies, and offices of government at the application level involving interagency matters pertaining to national security, counterterrorism, stability and reconstruction operations, and disaster preparation and response. One of the main goals of the Simons Center book program is to foster a deeper understanding of the emerging interagency environment.
The Simons Center’s role is to serve as a sponsor for selected books. Selected books are primarily published by the Command and General Staff College Foundation Press, but may also be done in cooperation with other publishers. The Simons Center lends its name and resources to publicizing the books.
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. Manuscripts may be submitted online through the Contribute Content page.
