University of Texas teams up with War on the Rocks

Jul 06, 2017

We are proud to announce the launch of the Texas National Security Review a quarterly academic journal in partnership with War on the Rocks.

In 2015, under the leadership of UT System Chancellor Bill McRaven, the Texas National Security Network was created “to make the University of Texas System the leading university system in the world for teaching and research on national security.” Co-directed by the Clements Center and Strauss Center, the Texas National Security Network brings together a System-wide alliance of centers, departments, programs, and institutes in the fields of national security, intelligence, biosecurity, cybersecurity, border security, and more. 

One of the cornerstone projects of the Network is the creation of the Texas National Security Review, a quarterly academic journal. We are proud to announce our partnership with War on the Rocks, a leading media outlet for national security and foreign policy analysis.

As Founder and Editor-in-Chief of War on the Rocks Ryan Evans summarizes, "think of us as the Washington-based action arm of the Texas National Security Network. At the center of this collaboration is a new journal: the Texas National Security Review. This forthcoming publication will feature both peer-reviewed scholarly work and contributions by policymakers and practitioners. Its academic articles will be peer-reviewed (double-blind), rigorous, interdisciplinary, and accessible and useful for decision-makers. The new journal’s articles by policymakers and national security practitioners will represent the best of War on the Rocks and professional journals, in long-form and footnoted, but still totally accessible. The print edition will come out quarterly and will be made available online, for free, for everyone. No more gates between the public and knowledge. The online edition will also feature roundtable-style debates, discussions, and book reviews."

We are excited about this new initiative and look forward to the first edition of the Texas National Security Review.
