Editing and Design Branch

The Editing and Design Branch is the publishing arm of the History Division and the Marine Corps University Press.  The Branch handles all aspects in preparing History Division publications for print. The editors ensure compliance with the History Division Writing Guide and Chicago Manual of Style and edit for clarity of expression as well as spelling, punctuation, and style. The editorial staff also fact-checks where needed, which includes verification of locations and names and ranks of military personnel mentioned in the text. The visual information specialists design the books and produce illustrations to support the publications, including maps and charts.  The Branch staff also serves as the editorial and production staff for Marine Corps History, the Corps' only military history journal.

In addition to their work on History Division publications, the Editing and Design staff operates a scholarly press, Marine Corps University Press, and publishes a peer-reviewed academic journal, MCU Journal.  Established in 2008, the press serves as a forum for interdisciplinary discussion of national security and international relations issues and how they impact the Department of Defense, the Department of the Navy, and the US Marine Corps directly and indirectly.
