Aims & Scope
Military Cyber Affairs encourages diversity in theoretical foundations, research methods, and approaches. Quantitative and qualitative studies, for example, each may contribute to advancing the military cyber professions.
MCA emphasizes practical, applied and professional issues, so manuscripts focused on cyber strategy, policy, tactics, ethics and technology are of particular interest. MCA welcomes papers identifying technical solutions but papers emphasizing technical topics should be lucid and comprehensible to the general reader and generally free from equations and mathematical notations. MCA encourages discourse that applies universally to the Joint Defense community.
MCA publishes review articles, original empirical research, and analytic/conceptual works that contribute to a better understanding of cyber operations, cyber threats and ways to prevent or mitigate their impact. Each article should analyze and include implications for policy and practice. Further, papers should not be purely hypothetical in content but should include substantive analysis in support of the hypothesis of the paper. Supporting background research should be thorough and clearly identifiable in the paper.
