The Journal of Defense Modeling and Simulation

Applications, Methodology, Technology

eISSN: 1557380X | ISSN: 15485129 | Current volume: 21 | Current issue: 2 Frequency: Quarterly

JDMS: The Journal of Defense Modeling and Simulation: Applications, Methodology, Technology is a quarterly refereed archival journal devoted to advancing the practice, science, and art of modeling and simulation as it relates to the military and defense.

The primary focus of the journal is to document, in a rigorous manner, technical lessons derived from practical experience. The journal also publishes work related to the advancement of defense systems modeling and simulation technology, methodology, and theory.

The journal covers all areas of the military / defense mission, maintaining a focus on the practical side of systems simulation versus pure theoretical applications.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

PLEASE NOTE:

An institutional subscription to the Journal of Defense Modeling & Simulation includes its sister journal SIMULATION: Transactions of the Society of Modeling & Simulation International. Individual subscribers must purchase each journal separately.

Subscription includes both JDMS: Journal of Defense Modeling & Simulation and SIMULATION. Subscribers benefit from 16 issues of essential simulation information from the leading society in modeling and simulation: Society for Modeling and Simulation International.

The Journal of Defense Modeling and Simulation: Applications, Methodology, Technology (JDMS) is a quarterly refereed archival journal devoted to advancing the practice, science, and art of modeling and simulation as it relates to the military and defense.

 

The primary focus of the journal is to document, in a rigorous manner, technical lessons derived from practical experience. The journal also publishes work related to the advancement of defense systems modeling and simulation technology, methodology, and theory. It covers all areas of the military/defense mission, maintaining a focus on the practical side of systems simulation versus pure theoretical applications.

 

The journal seeks contributions that provide in-depth descriptions of applications of modeling and simulation to defense systems and developments of new simulation-based military technologies.

Methodologies and theories that demonstrate achieved, or potential, significant improvements in defense modeling and simulation practice are also welcome. Submissions will be judged for their contribution to the development of a robust and reliable knowledge base for application of validated modeling and simulation principles to defense systems.

 

Comprehensive review and tutorial papers that explicate topics in modeling and simulation that fall within the journal aims and scope are welcome and will be reviewed both for technical quality as well as understandability to the general reader.

 

The journal will be of prime interest to developers, researchers, educators, and managers who are interested in lessons learned from the experiences and conclusions documented in the articles.

 

Further Definitions:

 

Applications includes (but is not limited to): warfighting, training, test and evaluation, command and control, decision support, aerospace, peacekeeping, non-traditional missions, special operations, and homeland security.

 

 

Methodology includes (but is not limited to): simulation design techniques, scenario construction, and federation construction process.

 

Technology includes (but is not limited to): simulation techniques, synthetic natural environment modeling, multi-resolution techniques, time management techniques, and High Level Architecture.

 

Author: if your proposed article does not fall under the JDMS aims and scope, please consider submitting to our sister journal Simulation: Transactions of The Society for Modeling and Simulation International
