The Naval Review

The Naval Review Centenary

The Centenary project will undertake research on primary source material, one hundred years of Naval Review journals. The Editor, a distinguished author, will be assisted by a team of internationally renowned academics, writers, researchers and authors in an analysis of the material through varied themes, one per chapter. The end result will be a published volume.

The Centenary will be celebrated through the publication of a unique volume in which internationally recognised defence and academic authorities will analyse, in 25 essays, the impact of the ideas published by The Naval Review on official policy. The study will consider influences upon decision making and policy evolution within the Royal Navy, and how the informal organisational communication and knowledge transfer process may have functioned over time. There are currently, few, if any, other opportunities in which to examine over a long period this kind of organisational learning and thinking with such a wealth of historical data.
