Information for Contributors
To best reflect the spirit of openness at NIP,
we are interested in articles that are innovative and creative, address
controversial subjects, and compare different theoretical perspectives.
We encourage work that reflects an emphasis on integration of clinical
and theoretical material, of diverse analytic techniques, of various
psychotherapeutic paradigms and of analytic with non-analytic techniques.
We also invite submissions of poetry, essays, fiction and memoirs relating
to themes of psychoanalysis, as well as letters to the editors. Please
refer to the Creative Literary section
for more information about submitting creative works.
Psychoanalytic Perspectives receives all manuscript submissions electronically
via its ScholarOne Manuscripts site located at: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/uppe.
ScholarOne Manuscripts allows for rapid submission of original and revised manuscripts,
as well as facilitating the review process and internal communication between authors,
editors and reviewers via a web-based platform. ScholarOne Manuscripts technical support
can be accessed via http://scholarone.com/services/support/. If you have any other requests
please contact Hillary Grill, the journal’s submissions editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All components of the manuscript, including abstract, text,
quoted passages, footnotes and references must be double spaced, 25
lines on a page, 60 characters to a line, printed in a nonproportional
(Times New Roman 10-pt) typeface. An abstarct of 150 words should be
included. The first page of the article should contain the author(s)
name(s), title of the article, mailing and e-mail addresses and a bio,
of up to three lines, containing your current affiliations and positions
held. The final pages at the end of the paper are reserved for a list
of references to all works cited in the text.
In the manner of most psychoanalytic journals, text references follow the
author-date system, e.g. (Grant, 2001) and are cited within the text,
not as footnotes or endnotes. Multiple text references are listed chronologically,
not alphabetically. Every text citation must have its corresponding
reference listing on the reference page at the end of the article, and
the reference list should contain publication information only about
sources cited in the text. Quotations must be cited by their source
page numbers in parentheses, e.g. (p. 120).
In submitting clinical material to Psychoanalytic Perspectives
for publication, the author affirms that s/he is familiar with
and has followed the guidelines of his or her discipline(s) pertaining
to the confidentiality of such material. The author confirms that publication
would not involve any breach of confidentiality or professional ethics.
Authors are responsible for all statements made in their work and for
obtaining permission from copyright holders to reprint substantial passages
from previously published works.
The Editors, The National Institute for the Psychotherapies
