Australian Journal of Defence and Strategic Studies

By The Cove August 25, 2020

The Australian Journal of Defence and Strategic Studies (AJDSS), is the new flagship academic journal of the Australian Defence Force. With its launch in 2019, the AJDSS aims to support and inform high-quality discussion of defence and strategic concerns within Australia and the region.

Military forces, if they are to be effective, must anticipate a broad spectrum of requirements, possess excellent institutional leadership, and cultivate an intellectual edge. The AJDSS is committed to publishing high-quality professional discourse and peer reviewed scholarship that contributes to national, regional and global defence and national security dialogue. It is a leading source of contemporary defence and strategic thinking and practice, which nurtures the desire in military and civilian personnel to achieve individual, and collective, professional excellence.
