Founded in late 2010, the peer-reviewed and international Infinity Journal has been recently relaunched as Military Strategy Magazine. The publication is produced by the IJ Infinity Group, which also produces the Journal of Military Operations. Military Strategy Magazine seeks articles less than 3,000 words in length, written in English about strategy—the threat or use of violence toward political ends—as it relates to policy, tactics, operations, and history.
"Our intent is to assist in greater awareness, as well as a better understanding and education of what strategy is, to whom and how it is being applied, how and why it is created, how it works, or why it fails," the magazine's editors write.
According to the IJ Group website, their efforts are multidisciplinary, non-governmental, and private venture unaffiliated with any institution:
The IJ Group is a publishing company founded in and based out of Tel Aviv, Israel. Our aim is to provide education in Strategy and Warfare. The company currently publishes two peer-reviewed journals, both of which aim to include as wide an audience as possible, so as to assist in a better understanding and greater awareness of critical yet complex subjects.
The Military Strategy Magazine website reads:
MSM is a free, peer-reviewed publication concerned with strategy as a consequence of consciously linking Policy Ends, Strategic Ways, and Military Means. We are interested in discussions about strategy at any level — be it the nature of strategy or the conduct of campaigns — and as regards any dimension—from nuclear weapons to cyber-power. We are as concerned with the theory as much as with the practice of strategy, whether across cultures, across history, or as a way ahead.
Military Strategy Magazine aims to make the discussion of strategy accessible, to advance the field of strategy as a discipline, and to exchange insights into how and why it succeeds, or fails.
We are multidisciplinary in our approach, giving equal time to academics and practitioners. We think the nexus between theory and practice is underdeveloped. We see Military Strategy Magazine as one of the key mediums for remedying that. We invite participation in any form and from any quarter, provided it is open-minded. All submissions to the journal are critically reviewed before being published. [...]
Editors strongly advise that article submissions "must be about the threat or use made of violence for political objectives. We are not an international relations or foreign policy publication." They recommend potential contributors familiarize themselves with the concepts found in "What is Strategy?", a brief published a their website.
All articles are subject to review by at least one internal reviewer and a minimum of two external reviewers.
