We welcome your papers for publication

PUBLISH AN ARTICLE

The Journal is a peer-reviewed journal that welcomes submissions in English from all over the world. The JAP prefers to publish articles of clinical relevance that advance an innovative theoretical perspective or conceptual argument, and papers based on original research which has generated new empirical data.

Reasons to publish your work in the Journal:

  • Foremost international Jungian publication in English
  • High readership: over 100,000 articles downloaded every year
  • Global circulation: over 5,000 institutions worldwide with access to current content
  • Authors receive free online access to their article once published as well as 25% discount on all Wiley publications

How to submit an article

Articles are submitted, preferably, via our online database by following this link

or directly to the managing editor at journal.jap@thesap.org.uk

The manuscript should be typed in double-spacing and not more than 8,000 words in length, including footnotes and references.
Articles should be accompanied by a word count, an abstract of not more than 200 words and 6 to 8 key words at the beginning of the paper, indicating the major argument of the article and its significance as an addition to existing knowledge.

Guidance on the optimization of titles and abstracts for online searching can be found at http://authorservices.wiley.com/bauthor/seo.asp.

Articles should be original contributions and should not be submitted to another publication simultaneously. Authors of articles already published in foreign journals should communicate with the Editors before sending manuscripts.

A brief autobiographical note containing relevant details about the author should be included on a separate page. In order to maintain the anonymity of the peer review process, authors should ensure that their own name does not appear anywhere in their submission.  References to authors’ own work should be anonymised as far as possible to prevent the author from being identifiable.

THE PROCESS AFTER SUBMISSION

When we have received your article we will send it, in anonymous form, to two senior colleagues for review. When we have received their responses we will collate them and discuss the paper amongst the editorial team. This process can take several months in all.

One of the editors will then contact you with the results of our deliberations, giving you feedback gained from the foregoing process. We will either:

  • accept the article for publication as it stands
  • accept the paper subject to specific revisions
  • suggest you work further on the paper, perhaps in areas we recommend, after which you are invited to resubmit your paper should you choose to do so
  • decline the paper for publication

IF AN ARTICLE IS NOT ACCEPTED

Even when a paper is not accepted, we recognise that every paper has the germ of an idea, and frequently a great deal more than that, that we hope the author will go on to further develop in order to bring to fruition. We recognise that this development and germination process may take some time or may occur quickly.

Mentoring

If it is appropriate, feasible and acceptable to the author, we are sometimes able to arrange a mentoring of the paper. We then put the author in touch with someone who may be able to guide the process, perhaps suggesting further reading or looking in some depth at the writing and editing process. Whilst this is not always possible, many people have found such mentoring extremely helpful.

Writing Workshops

We also hope to actively encourage writers, whether that is to publish papers in the JAP or elsewhere. To this end we often run writing workshops for those interested in furthering their ideas and writing. These are usually held just before or just after our conferences, although they may be held at other times. 

These writing workshops will be advertised on this website, but feel free to contact the Journal and we may be able to put you in touch with a writing tutor who may be able to help.
