Providing Professional Insight

The American Intelligence Journal is the flagship publication of NMIF and its predecessor, the NMIA. First published in the 1970s, the Journal's focus remains on education and professional development. We seek to augment both the capabilities and the performance of armed forces intelligence operators and their civilian counterparts.

The legal environment increasingly demands joint, interagency, and coalition approach to military and homeland security operations. Today, the military intelligence professional must be proficient in traditional and emerging disciplines, missions, and functions. The American Intelligence Journal offers readers an artful balance between the wisdom of scholars and the street smarts of practitioners. We also encourage international authors.

Intelligence operators need high-caliber reference material, free from an excessive emphasis on methodology and the limited access jargon now so prevalent in the academic media. The Journal is a trusted source. With plain language, we also amplify public understanding of the contributions military intelligence makes to national security and homeland defense.

The Journal features leading-edge work by authors throughout the wider Intelligence Community, the armed services, and academia. We have an active dialogue with the National Intelligence University, the National Defense University, the Senior Service Colleges, and American Military University to review and publish appropriate articles by their faculty and students. Pieces submitted for publication must pass a careful peer review process.
