USNI News is the U.S. Naval Institute’s online news and analysis portal. Designed to be responsive to world events and 24-hour information cycles, USNI News seeks to provide germane analysis quickly on national security matters. Our contributors range from defense journalists, active duty service members and expert defense analysts. That list, however, is not exclusive and does not stop at a print product. We will happily entertain video, audio and other multimedia contributions.

We are as interested in submissions from Forward Operating Bases and deck plates as we are from academia and the Washington crowd.

We mostly focus on maritime issues but not to the exclusion of other topics.
We welcome your submissions and your expertise.
