What does the eJournal publish?

  • The eJournal's mission is to engage, inform, and stimulate Psychoanalysts, Psychoanalytical Candidates researchers and any other member of the public interested in psychoanalytical theory and practice.

  • To achieve these aims we publish substantially new research, educational, letters and articles commenting on the clinical, scientific, social, political, and economic factors affecting the Psychoanalytical profession. We are delighted to consider relevant articles for publication from any individual or group, and from anywhere in the world.
  • We aim to publish articles deemed relevant and NOT containing clinical confidential material, by the quick and authoritative decision of a simple majority of our editors. For all types of article the target time from submission to acceptance to publication will be less than a week.
  • Our publishing model: the eJournal publishes its articles continuously on, so each day there is new content.


  • All papers in the eJournal are published with access available to all.

  • There are no current plans to charge for access or for uploading papers to the eJournal.

  • In order to keep the site free for all you may if you can afford it make a small donation for the continued maintenance and upkeep of the eJournal.


  • Articles accepted for publication in the eJournal must meet the highest standards.

  • All manuscripts are reviewed by at least five of the editors prior to publication.

  • The editors reserve the right to require changes in formatting at any time prior to publication.

  • We may, for keynote issues, include reviews from a number of peer reviewers and/or our editors. However, the eJournal is committed to fully open peer review. This means that every published article can be reviewed and/or rated by any reader of that article. Should a reader submit a reviewer their comments, and all the comments from reviewers and editors (if any) will also be made public.

Authors' responses to post-publication feedback from readers

  • The corresponding author of every article in the eJournal receives an automated email when the paper is published online. We believe that authors have an academic duty to respond to substantive criticism of their work, the eJournal expects authors to post their own rapid responses on in reply to any such substantive comments, and editors may send reminders about this.


  • Authors retain both copyright and the right to be identified as the author of the work in perpetuity and their article can be shared freely (that is, it can be copied, distributed, transmitted and published freely) under the published Copyright conditions.

Terms and Conditions

  • Authors must agree to our Terms and Conditions for publication of material. If you disagree with our policies and terms please DO NOT send us any material for publication.
