The editors of the MCU Journal are looking for submissions for consideration for an upcoming special issue of the journal focused on women in the military. The theme is broadly defined, but some examples of topics and disciplines of interest are listed below. Please feel free to contact the acquisitions editor if you would like to propose an idea or approach not mentioned.
The journal is peer reviewed, is indexed, and adheres to the Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed.). Articles should be 4,000-10,000 words, including footnotes. Deadline for proposals has been extended to June 15, 2017. Drafts and submissions ready for peer review should be in by July 31, 2017.
We encourage submissions from history, political science and IR, policy studies, communications, and other related fields. We are willing to consider comparative pieces, or manuscripts that imply comparison, e.g., examples from Canada or Israel. We are willing to work with advanced graduate students, junior faculty, and active-duty military. The journal serves a civilian-military population of authors, reviewers, and readers.
- Critical historical perspectives about women in the military, especially if they can shed light on current events
- Policy implications for gender integration under the previous administration
- Discussions of successful or failed attempts at gender integration in the U.S. or elsewhere
- Critical examinations of women servicemembers in relation to the media (past or present), including social media
