New Online Strategy Publication: Infinity Journal

November 16, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

image Infinity Journal is a new peer-review journal dedicated to strategy.  According to the Infinity Journal website:

Infinity Journal (IJ) is a peer-review electronic journalzine dedicated to the study and discussion of strategy. The intent of IJ is to assist in greater awareness, as well as a better understanding and education of what strategy is, to whom and how it is being applied, how and why it is created, how it works, or why it fails.

Infinity Journal aims to make the discussion of strategy accessible to the widest possible audience, because today strategy is widely misunderstood not only by the layman but also by students, senior soldiers and politicians. Therefore, we aim to keep rigid language and complexity to minimum and comprehensible language and simplicity to a maximum.

Articles from the current issue:

Assumptions: A Fatal Oversight – T. X. Hammes
The End of a Strategy-free Decision Making Environment? – John Mackinlay
Targeted Killings Work – A.E. Stahl and William F. Owen
Israel’s Strategy (or Lack of) Towards Iran’s Forward Rocket Deployments in Lebanon and Gaza – Ron Tira
Lynchpin: The U.S.-ROK Alliance after the Cheonan – Abraham M. Denmark and Zachary M. Hosford
Strategic Culture: A Look at Europe – Jonathan Dowdall

    Guys,

    You should let your readership know that Issue No. 2 of Infinity Journal has been released.

    Articles include:

    Reconsidering War’s Logic and Grammar by Dr. Antulio J. Echevarria II
    Coping with Nonstate Rivals by Dr. Eitan Shamir
    Seek and Destroy: The Forgotten Strategy for Countering Armed Rebellion by William F. Owen
    Special Forces: Strategic Asset by Dr. Simon Anglim

    The ‘Narrative Strategy’: A politicized Strategy for Leaving Afghanistan by Tom Wien

    Infinity Journal is a journalzine, a journal-magazine mix, that aims to bring a better understanding and new perspectives on strategy, delivered in a casual way rather than steeped in academic jargon. Registration is required but it takes a minute and is free. IJ offers readers two simple ways to read each issue. The online edition provides the best viewing experience, allowing for full page control and interaction, similar to a printed magazine but without the cost of subscription or the hassle of paper. The digital edition can now be read on iPhone, iPad, and Android. The PDF version has been optimized so that it can be used across a wide range of devices, from your computer all the way down to cellular phones or portable gadgets.
