Studies in Intelligence

quarterly journal published by the CIA.

"Every profession has its own literature. We have some great writers here. 'Studies' is where they get to speak their minds."— Andres Vaart, editor.

intelligence officers have filled its pages with analyses of old spy operations, book reviews, and tales of derring-do."

The editorial board consists of sixteen members, current and former intelligence officers.

A review board scrutinizes each submission to make certain no state secrets are published.

Each issue appears in classified and unclassified forms: the classified version appears only on cleared U.S. government websites.

Hard copies of the unclassified version are sent to each of the journal's roughly 500 subscribers.

As best I can determine, the general public — hoi polloi like u + moi — can't subscribe to the paper version, but it's available online here.

Free, the way we like it.
