The Journal of Defence Studies is a quarterly, refereed research periodical published by the Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses, New Delhi. It seeks to encourage further research on the core issues of defence, provides the latest perspectives, and serves as a platform for sharing research findings and opinions of scholars working on defence-related issues.
The Journal contains a mix of research articles, essays, topical commentaries, opinion pieces and book reviews. Each issue includes articles on varied themes of relevance to the Indian Armed Forces, including emerging security threats and scenarios; civil-military relations; higher defence planning; doctrines and concepts; organizations and structures; command and control mechanisms; logistical support and sustainability issues; budgeting procedures and practices; and other related issues in the area of defence and national security. The Journal would also focus on issues concerning defence policy, reforms in defence sector, and defence economics.
This is a special issue on 'Ethics and Morals in the Indian Armed Forces'. The contributions not only deliberate on the changing nature of the institution of the armed forces, they also focus on levels of individual performance and leadership, based on their collective experience of service.
JDS is calling for original articles/commentaries/book reviews on various issues related to defence and national security and strategy for our October-December 2013 (Vol. 7, No. 4) and January-March 2014 (Vol. 8 No. 1) issues. Detailed Guidelines for Contributors can be found here.

From the current issue (Vol. 7, No. 1, January-March 2013) we have instituted a ‘Letters to the Editor’ section in the journal. The idea is to engage with our readers, to know what they think about the content of each issue as well as seek their help in making JDS into a world-renowned journal that appeals to the strategic community.
