Submission Requirements

The Author Requirements PDF will detail the style and format of any submissions so that you can prepare your manuscript prior to submitting to our copy editors. The ICMJE Conflict of Interest uniform disclosure form can be downloaded here.

Important information for military authors: All articles written by military members must be preapproved by their commander and PAO prior to submission to the JSOM. Authors must adhere to standard OPSEC practices and refrain from mentioning specific units, specific locations, troop strengths, names of actively serving military personnel, TTPs, vulnerabilities, and any other information that could be of use to an adversary. This is the author's responsibility. Neither the JSOM nor Breakaway Media, LLC., shall be responsible for checking that this requirement has been completed; however, proper documentation of completion of this requirement shall be made available by the author upon request.
