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.
The issue covers varied themes: leadership attributes for counterinsurgency operations, strategic importance of the Bay of Bengal, the 1971 USS Enterprise incident, benchmarks for naval ship building, China’s biological warfare programme, and India’s Special Forces. It also features an assessment of the Parliamentary Defence Standing Committee (16th Lok Sabha). Read the issue [+]
