Special Issues

Scientia Militaria: South African Journal of Military Studies regularly publishes special, thematic issues addressing topics of defence, security, and military affairs through either a discipline-based or interdisciplinary research approach. Please see our online archives for examples of past special issues. Each special issue typically includes 5 to 10 articles, and up to 5 topical book reviews may also be incorporated. One special issue is allowed per year, contingent on the availability of funds. Special guest editors, in collaboration with the journal’s Editorial Team, oversee the entire lifespan of a special issue—from conceptualisation and the peer-review process to language editing and final layout.

Individuals interested in proposing a special issue for Scientia Militaria are encouraged to contact the editors, Evert Kleynhans (kleynhans@sun.ac.za) or Anri Delport (anridelport@sun.ac.za)
