The Journal of Applied Operational Intelligence (JAOI)

Issue Theme: Contemporary issues in applied operational intelligence 

Submission deadline: 31 May 2024 

Publication: Winter 2024 

The Journal of Applied Operational Intelligence (JAOI) has been launched by the University of Birmingham Press (UBP), aiming to bridge the gap between 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.
