Prior to submitting a manuscript, authors should provide information on the topic in a proposal and ensure the paper is written for Air Force senior leaders. Submissions from AU faculty and students will be considered before those authors external to AU. Submitted manuscripts must be complete (rather than proposals) and in an electronic format (preferably as an unformatted Microsoft Word document). Submissions are evaluated for originality, contribution to a significant national security issue, and appropriateness for the CUWS mission and goals.


Submissions for Trinity Site Papers should be between 3,000 and 5,000 words. Submissions for the Future Warfare Series should be between 15,000 - 30,000 words. Manuscripts submitted to the CUWS must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. With the exception of contracted writing commissioned by CUWS or AU Press, no payment or royalty can be made to authors.
