The ESDC's Academic Journal ”Perspective on Security and Defence” was launched as a logical extension of the College`s characteristics and preoccupations – a generic focus on Academic environment (with a direct link regarding the EAB`s Academic nature) and a wide preoccupation on the research environment. It was our direct intention to respond to the acute need of the security and defence environment to disseminate information in a dedicated, multidisciplinary publication. We have implemented an objective and quality-oriented publishing policy, including, among others, automated processing workflows, dedicated management tools, an anonymous peer-review system, focused experience of the scientific board and plagiarism scanning. In addition, “Perspectives on Security and Defence” will be world-wide disseminated using multiple international databases and catalogues. We will continuously encourage the publication of recent, objective and original materials on multiple topics of concern and we will ensure the progressive development of the ”Perspective on Security and Defence”.
