The Magazine

South Asia Defence & Strategic Review is a bi-monthly magazine focusing on Defence, Geostrategy and other Military Technology. The magazine was started in March 2007 and has carved out a large subscription base in the Indian subcontinent and other parts of the world.

The Aim of the magazine is to help shape policies on matters related to defence and strategy and spread awareness amongst our readers about such vital issues in the region. The magazine also showcases the latest technology being developed in the field of defence and security. Matters related to foreign policy and diplomacy too find a place in our magazine. 

Special Issues are published to commemorate special occasions and for events related to defence expositions. Our last commemorative special issue was on the occasion of 50 Years of Indo-Pak war, commissioned by HQ Integrated Defence Staff.


Our journal is widely circulated in the South Asian region including China and other Southeast Asian nations. The readership is among the Ministries of Defence and External Affairs, Think Tanks, Security and Strategic analysts, and other educational and training institutions of these countries including those of India. A large number of units and establishments of the three services, too, subscribe to our magazine.

Of the 17000 copies per issue, paid subscriptions account for 12000, with the remaining copies being distributed on complimentary basis to various institutions and academies in India and abroad.
