CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS - ISSUE 1
Chief Editors: Dr Ian Stanier & Dr Jordan Nunan
Issue Theme: Contemporary issues in applied operational intelligence.
The Journal of Applied Operational Intelligence (JAOI) has just been launched by University of Buckingham Press (UBP), aiming to bridge the gap between high-quality peer-reviewed academic research and the practitioner community on contemporary intelligence issues. The journal provides a unique emphasis on applied empirical research that seeks to address how organisations can enhance the day-to-day policies and practices in the intelligence arena. JAOI aims to address the ‘so what?’ question underpinned by academic rigor.
JAOI will be published annually on an open access basis, with no fees for submission, and will be globally distributed. The journal accepts a wide range of methodologies (e.g., quantitative and qualitative), and articles will normally combine rigorous examination of challenges relevant for real-world events with appropriate theoretical analysis and proper appraisal of practical implications. The core readership of the journal will be intelligence practitioners, policy makers, and academics.
A primary focus of the journal is the effective application of operational intelligence across all sectors (e.g., public, private and third sectors) in authentic contexts. It's not intended to offer an exhaustive list, but some examples of topics covered by this journal are the:
- Use of Human Intelligence (HUMINT), including informants, agents, cooperating offenders, and undercover operatives.
- Application of techniques that enhance the elicitation of information (e.g., interviewing, debriefing, and interrogations).
- Intelligence collection and analysis.
- Methods for effective intelligence sharing.
- Actioning of Intelligence (e.g., the use of single source information, improving the timeliness of dissemination).
- Concepts of what works / what does not work in intelligence practice?
- Applications of intelligence models to practice (e.g., the UK National Intelligence Model).
- Comparisons of intelligence practice (e.g., local, regional, national, and international).
- The use of technology to benefit intelligence practices.
- Effective training methods for intelligence practitioners.
- Opening date for submissions: 5th February 2024
- Closing date for submissions: 31st May 2024
- Publication date: Winter 2024
