Letter from the Editors

Robert Young, Paul Gordon and Andrew Cooper

Following a series of discussions by the editorial board of Free Associations, it has been agreed that the journal should not be limited to contributions written from a specifically psychoanalytic perspective but should also encourage contributions which deal with other subjects that are relevant to our main concerns, and will be of interest to our readers. Accordingly, the editors would welcome articles, comments and reviews on matters of politics, philosophy, social theory and culture.

It is not our intention that Free Associations should become another amorphous journal. Our primary focus remains psychoanalysis, but we want to move from a strategy where every article has to be ‘Psychoanalysis and …’ to the inclusion of a small, but regular, number of contributions in which broader issues — the ‘groups, politics, culture’ of our ‘subtitle’ — are treated in their own terms. Our wish to broaden the scope of the journal is a recognition that the theory of psychoanalysis and the practice of psychotherapy operate within a specific social, political and cultural context, and can only benefit from a greater interaction with other fields of knowledge and debate.

The journal particularly invites shorter articles (I, 500—2, 500 words) on matters of current concern, which will be published in a new ‘Commentary’ section. Articles submitted for this section will, if they are of sufficient quality, be given priority for publication and, where necessary, will be published with the minimum delay allowed for by our production schedule. The editors will be pleased to discuss possible contributions at an early stage.
