The Journal of Intelligence & Analysis

AddThis Social Bookmark Button


The International Association of Law Enforcement Intelligence Analysts (IALEIA) publishes a peer-reviewed journal annually. The journal is a scholarly publication that strives to "bridge the gap" between academic research and the practical techniques employed by criminal research specialists and intelligence experts worldwide.


The Journal of Intelligence & Analysis Objectives

• Its central objective is to publish articles that advance the theoretical and research agenda of the intelligence and analytical fields related to military, law enforcement and criminal justice.

• Its emphasis is upon empirical research, qualitative studies and scientific methodology, with priority given to articles reporting original research.

• It includes articles needed to advance the intelligence analysis profession.

• Its emphasis is upon providing more informed dialogue about analytical policies and practices and the empirical procedures related to these policies and practices.

Submissions are considered from many sources including field-level analysts, investigators, senior policy-making officials, and college and university faculty and researchers. Only original manuscripts not previously published or under consideration by another periodical will be considered for review. If accepted for publication, all manuscripts become the exclusive property of the Journal of Intelligence & Analysis, and cannot be published elsewhere without the written consent of the International Association of Law Enforcement Intelligence Analysts.

Submissions must adhere to American Psychological Association (6th Edition) standards. Scholarly research or best practice articles should be between 15 and 30 pages in length (double-spaced, full justification, 12-point courier or times new roman font).  All submissions must be in American English, paginated, include an abstract, and an author's biography.  

Manuscripts may be submitted electronically: Email the document attachment to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for consideration. If Microsoft Word is not available, save the document as a "rtf" file. Please be sure to check all documents for viruses prior to submission, as infected files will not be opened or reviewed for publication.

Review Process

The review process is completed in three phases. The Editor reads through the material initially to determine if the paper is appropriate and in the proper format for the publication. Once approved, the manuscript is forwarded to a review team and a subject matter expert who will conduct simultaneous reviews of the material. The review team will be verifying that the piece is an original manuscript while reviewing.
