The Scandinavian Journal of Military Studies is published by the Royal Danish Defence College, the Swedish Defence University, the Norwegian Defence University College, the Centre for Military Studies, University of Copenhagen and the Swedish Centre for Studies of Armed Forces and Society.
Exceptional situations call for exceptional measures, also within the academic publishing community. As the tragic and unlawful invasion of Ukraine by Russia is unfolding, the military studies community faces a series of acute questions both regarding past assumptions about Russian and Ukrainian capabilities and about the very nature of strategy, doctrine and war itself in the current moment.
The editorial team has therefore decided to fast track a special issue of Scandinavian Journal of Military Studies which, both in contribution size and in the nature of the content, diverges from our normal publication modes.
We encourage members of the military studies community to respond to the call and to partake in this important and necessary conversation.

The SJMS Press is extremely proud to present the new anthology "Transformations of the Military Profession and Professionalism in Scandinavia".
The anthology is edited by Anne Roelsgaard Obling & Lotta Victor Tillberg and features an amazing lineup of researchers whose contributions track the status and future of the Scandinavian military profession from different angles and methodologies.
The anthology is a must-read for anyone who's interested in what it means to be and, not least, educate a military officer in a security climate which is rapidly moving from counter-insurgency and the Global War on Terror to territorial defense and great power competition, and a professional environment in which the officer has to straddle a delicate balance between "warrior" and "administrator".
