Articles submitted to Global Security Studies for publication must be sent as a Microsoft Word attachment.  Authors will also send an e-mail cover letter to which includes the corresponding author's full address, affiliation, and telephone/fax number. 

All manuscripts will be reviewed by three members of the Editorial Board or qualified outside reviewers. Decisions about article acceptance will be made as rapidly as possible with the normal notification time period of two to four weeks. It is the goal of the Global Security Studies (GSS) to publish accepted manuscripts within a reasonable amount of time; normally the next available issue.

Electronic proofs will be sent (e-mail attachment) to the corresponding author as a PDF file. Page proofs are considered to be the final version of the manuscript. With the exception of typographical or minor clerical errors, no changes will be made in the manuscript at the proof stage. Because Global Security Studies (GSS) will be published online, authors will have free electronic access to the full text as a PDF file of the article. Authors can freely download the PDF file from which they can print unlimited copies of their articles.

Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, or thesis); that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that if and when the manuscript is accepted for publication, the authors agree to retain full copyright privileges.

The publication fee for each accepted article is $250 USD.
