The Texas National Security Review is committed to excellence, scholarly rigor, and big ideas.

We aim for articles published in this journal to end up on university syllabi and policy desks from Washington to Tokyo, and to be cited as the foundational research and analysis on world affairs.

The Texas National Security Review publishes three kinds of articles.

  1. Academic manuscripts for “The Scholar” section.
  2. Policy and practitioner articles for “The Strategist” section.
  3. Roundtables either on books or specific issues.

Each of these require different standards, guidance, and considerations.

The Scholar

Our scholarly submissions are published in our quarterly print edition and online.

We do not publish punditry, “inside baseball,” or small ball. We are open to all disciplinary approaches — including but not limited to history, political science, economics, the law, science, engineering, ethics and philosophy, and sociology — and diverse methodological approaches. We are especially eager to publish works that connect and transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries. The focus of our first several issues is world order and its constituent parts: grand strategy, great power competition, internal wars, homeland defense, non-state actors, international trade and legal regimes, and prosperity and decline.

While we are catholic when it comes to discipline and methodology, we are not interested in arcane arguments that are only of interest to the high priests of the established disciplines. If your arguments and methods are not accessible to the policymaker, they do not belong in this journal.

Our editorial team, editorial board, associate editors, and outside reviewers vet submissions in the most rigorous and useful way possible. Our review and editorial processes are oriented towards generating the most cutting edge, impactful scholarship on national and international security. We embrace and build upon the best practices of scholarly review, while striving to avoid what we all know as the pathologies that plague the academic review process. The journal exercises the right to perform a desk rejection instead of taking a manuscript forward for peer review. We also may ask you to make revisions to set your manuscript up for success before a peer review.

If you are interested in submitting an academic manuscript for this section of the journal, please follow these steps:

  1. Send your manuscript as a Word document (no other formats are accepted) with a cover letter and a 100-word summary to editorial@tnsr.org.
  2. Ensure your manuscript does not have your name on it or any references that would enable a reviewer to identify who you are.
  3. We are open-minded about word-length but demand precision, accessibility, and concision while understanding that some arguments require length to unfold. We recommend a length somewhere between 8,000 and 17,000 words, not including footnotes. We use AP style for text (with some exceptions) and the Chicago Manual of Style for footnotes.
  4. Those employing quantitative methods must use readable and well-labeled graphs and charts (as opposed to in-text formulae and regression tables).

Please feel free to email editorial@tnsr.org if you’d like to ask if your article might be the right fit for the Texas National Security Review. However, in making these inquiries, please do not attach the draft of the article.

The Strategist

These articles are also published in our quarterly print edition and online.

This section is dedicated to publishing the work of current and former senior policymakers, members of the military, and civilian national security practitioners. The focus of our first several issues is world order and its constituent parts: grand strategy, great power competition, internal wars, homeland defense, non-state actors, international trade and legal regimes, and prosperity and decline.

If you are interested in submitting, please send a 100-word pitch to editorial@tnsr.org with a short bio. Please do not send us an article that has been submitted elsewhere unless you have formally withdrawn it. Please also follow the below guidelines:

  1. Lede: Open your article with a provocative question, engaging anecdote, shocking fact, or humorous observation. Catch the reader’s attention from the first word.
  2. Structure: Tell us what you are going to tell us, tell us, then tell us what you told us. In other words, state your argument clearly and up-front in your first or second paragraph. This thesis statement should be one or two sentences. Then give us the meat of your argument in the body section. Use evidence liberally, cited with footnotes. Consider using section breaks with titles. And finally, give us a strong conclusion that sums up your argument and offers a clear way forward. Don’t just describe, prescribe.
  3. No jargon. We want your articles to be widely read and understood, so please don’t use language and acronyms that are only comprehensible to insiders.
  4. Length: Articles should be between 2,000 and 8,000 words.

Roundtables

Roundtables are where we get to hear from multiple experts on either a subject matter or a recently published book. These collections of essays are solicited by the Texas National Security Review. However, if you have an idea for a future roundtable discussion, either a topic or a book, or would like to be considered as a potential roundtable contributor in the future, please feel free to email us at editorial@tnsr.org.
