The IJMH Early-Career Paper Prize 2020 by the International Journal of Military History and Historiography (IJMH) of the Bibliographical Committee of the International Commission of Military History (ICMH)
The International Journal of Military History and Historiography invites submissions for its IJMH Early-Career Paper Prize.
The International Journal of Military History and Historiography (IJMH) has been continuously published (from 1978 to 2015 as the International Bibliography of Military History – IBMH), on behalf of the International Commission of Military History (ICMH), which can trace back its origins to 1938. The journal offers its readers and authors a platform that includes original research articles on any military historical topic from antiquity to the contemporary period that can appeal to an international readership.
The Prize will be awarded to an academic article of outstanding quality in the field of international military history written by a graduate student or an early-career scholar, which will have been published in the IJMH in 2020, either in print or as an advance article online. The author of the winning article will be officially announced in the journal and on the journal’s website, and receive a €1,000 cash prize. See past years’ winners below.
In line with IJMH’s general guidelines, submissions should be an original contribution to the field of military history that is of interest to an international readership, e.g., a topic involving more than one nation and, preferably, based on multi-archival research. There is no chronological limitation. IJMH publishes articles ranging from antiquity to the contemporary period, provided that the subject is historical and the methodology fulfils academic standards.
Articles should be based extensively on primary research, must not have been previously published in another form or outlet, and should not be currently under consideration by another journal or book series. The submitted work has to comply with the journal’s style sheet, be between 8,000 and 10,000 words (including footnotes), and be thoroughly referenced. For further information on style and referencing, please visit www.brill.com/ijmh.
The prize is open to graduate students who are currently registered at a higher education institution, or to those who have obtained their doctoral degree after January 1, 2015. Submissions for the 2020 prize are accepted on a rolling basis, but should be sent by 30 September 2020 by the latest. Please see the journal webpage for information on how to submit (www.brill.com/ijmh). In case of questions, contact the Editor-in-Chief, Dr Marco Wyss (firstname.lastname@example.org).

CALL FOR WRITERS
Strategies & Tactics Press
We are looking to augment our current pool of writers at Strategies & Tactics Press. Founded in 1967, Strategy & Tactics magazine is the longest continually published military history magazine. In addition to Strategy & Tactics, we also publish World at War, which specializes in the Second World War and Modern War which specializes in Cold War/Current/Future conflicts.
All of periods of military history are desired. For submissions we are looking for the analytical aspect of the certain battle/conflict, not necessarily just the story or personal aspect of the battle (i.e. we focus on the “how and why” questions).
