Notes to contributors
The editorial board welcomes articles, commentaries and shorter papers that address the intersection between psychoanalysis (including analytical psychology), culture, and society with particular reference to social and political issues, social justice and praxis. We also welcome papers that address the relationship between the social world and clinical practice. We are interested in ongoing research and as such we regularly publish field notes. Occasionally we publish articles that address key psychoanalytic concepts and the way in which these ideas have an impact on everyday life.
Articles and key psychoanalytic concepts should not exceed 8,000 words in length, including references and, where they are used, endnotes. All articles are subject to peer review and the final decision to publish rests with the editors.
All submissions should be sent to
Submissions to Field Notes
Section Editors Jane Hassinger, Frann Michel and Julie Walsh
The field notes section of Psychoanalysis, Culture & Society consists of short commentaries (approximately 3000 words in length) on psychoanalytically informed activities or projects. These short papers focus on a range of topics that bridge psychoanalysis, culture or politics, such as clinical practice, conference reports, ethnographic research or field studies, dynamics of consultation or teaching, and analyses of issues related to the arts and/or political activism. Field notes should conform to the style of the journal, although they typically have fewer citations and include personal reflections on some area of applied psychoanalytic work.
