The Journal of Military History and Defence Studies is a bi-annual peer-reviewed open access online journal that publishes original research and contributions in military history and defence studies. In addition to publishing work by established authors and scholars, it has the particular aim of making available to a wide audience the best work completed by postgraduate students studying within these fields at Maynooth University, the Irish Military College and other similar institutions. The journal also aims to publish special editions that make available original research presented at conferences, research seminars etc. As the title suggests, the journal focuses on military history and defence studies, taking a broad view of these subject areas to include the history of war and of militaries, and also of the impact of these on wider society, in addition to the study of war, strategy, security and military organisation today and into the future.
The first edition of the new journal features articles based on work submitted by students studying on the MA in Military History and Strategic Studies at Maynooth and will be launched by the general editor, Dr Ian Speller (MU Department of History), at an event in Maynooth University Library at 1pm on Thursday 13 February 2020 as part of the library’s ‘love data’ week.
All are welcome.
