Joint Publication 3-0 “Joint Operations” incorporating Change 1, 22 October 2018
• This publication is the keystone military doctrine document of the joint operations series. It provides guidance to joint force Commanders (JFCs) and their subordinates to plan, execute, and assess joint military operations.
• Change 1 incorporates the newly established “Information” as a joint function. Joint functions are related capabilities and activities grouped together to help JFCs integrate, synchronize, and direct joint operations.
• The information function encompasses the management and application of information and its deliberate integration with other joint functions to change or maintain perceptions, attitudes, and other elements that drive desired behaviors and to support human and automated decision making.
• Combat Camera and Public Affairs are now cited as Joint Force capabilities and activities for leveraging information power.
