The Journal of Security and Strategic Analyses (JSSA) is the new journal in the foregoing fields captioned in its title. There is a variety of journals in this area but most of them are colored with the perspectives from where they are published: primarily the Western discourse on strategic and security studies that excludes Sino-Russian and most of the Eurasian and African affairs viewpoints. The goal of JSSA is to publish autonomous, objective and innovative research carrying profound impact in strategic and security studies. It aims to project policy oriented research based upon standard academic research methodology.

JSSA seeks to publish manuscripts with cutting-edge research that breaks new ground and makes an original contribution rather than merely an incremental contribution to the existing strategic studies. Manuscripts should address policy impacting developments, phenomena and issues with a distinct standpoint. JSSA is particularly interested in publishing innovative policy research papers bearing a multi-disciplinary approach. Manuscripts should provide a brief overview or literature review of existing perspectives but often challenging the traditional mainstream views, wherever possible.
