Dr. Bachmann, we are making decisions on a rolling basis. However, once we reach capacity for our Fall 2023 issue, we will continue reviewing submissions for publication in our Spring 2024 issue. Our online sister publication also accepts submissions on a rolling basis.

Thank you Ben. I have another article ready to go with the above article and co-authored by two military officers and academics (ADF and SANDF) and me. Abstract Misinformation, disinformation, and mal-information are dominating the information warfare domain, key enablers associated with grey zones, and an integral part of our current adversaries’ and competitors’ hybrid warfare tool kit. Disinformation, in combination with influence operations, also plays an important role within the concept of hybrid warfare; both from a threat– and own resilience perspective. This article reflects on these information warfare tools and their application by Russia in the current Russo-Ukraine; offering considerable force multipliers in the information domain for the Russian aggressor, taking in consideration the construct of information disorder. Hybrid warfare and hybrid threats, information warfare and disinformation, deception as part of an adversary’s grey zone operations approach are all discussed in detail and how these threats require a comprehensive approach regarding both awareness and resilience. There is only little law nexus (some references to lawfare as a weapon of war – Dunlop, Kittrie and Bachmann). I am very much fond of the idea to submit it to your online journal as it stands at 8000 words now. Would such a submission fall under the remit of your journal or not. Thank you and kind regards Sascha Dov
