The Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College has, since its establishment in 1963, contributed to scholarly knowledge. The College has maintained a House Magazine – The Flame – through which students’ articles and writings have been communicated to the outside world. The African Journal of Defence, Security and Strategy comes to complement existing structures of sharing knowledge generated in the College, by the alumni, affiliates, and stakeholders.

The granting of approval by the Governing Council, the Staff College Control Board, for the birth of the African Journal of Defence, Security and Strategy (AJODSS) marks a major milestone in the history of the College. The refereed journal does not just aim at generating and sharing academic knowledge among the local, continental, and global academic communities; it is also meant to stimulate and sustain the interest of graduates of the College and their associates in scholarly writing. It is hoped that articles will be of interest to policy makers across the public and private sectors. Above all, the underlying aim of the AJODSS is to add to scholarship by filling prevailing voids identified in the central thematic areas of Defence, Security, and Strategy as well as sub-thematic areas including Geo-Strategy and Geo-Politics, among others in a manner that captures and propagates the original African experience. These should not only be engaging and relevant to defence and security institutions, but also to industries and security experts with interests about Africa.

The journal which is modeled on the principles of Open Access shall be hosted via a dedicated web portal which shall be accessible at: www. The journal shall have one edition per annum to coincide with the joint graduation ceremony of the Senior Command and

Staff Course and Master of Defence and International Politics course run by the College. Articles can be submitted through the journal’s dedicated web portal by following the required procedures which are equally available on the portal. Alternatively, a prospective author can submit an article to the Office of the College Journal through the email address: Articles intended to be featured in the African Journal of Defence, Security and Strategy must meet world class scholarly standards. In this regard, the word count per submitted article should range between a minimum of 6000 and a maximum of 8000 words including references. The journal’s accepted referencing style is the American Psychological Association (APA) style. Additionally, a maximum of 5 keywords per article; a single- spaced abstract of not more than 300 words; and a brief biography of the author(s), are required.
