The Journal is an annual publication, which accepts quantitative or qualitative research from graduate students around the world. Papers are reviewed by the editorial staff and a faculty review board using a blind process.

“Knowledge and understanding on what China is doing in the field of technology and national security is still lacking, so it is imperative that the new generations of analysts and scholars are well trained and encouraged to engage in original research and thinking because China, during the course of their future careers, is going to be very different from the present and past.”
