Joseph Sandler

Next year, at the venerable age of 55, the International Journal of Psycho-Analysis will welcome the arrival of a sibling, in the form of the International Review of Psycho-Analysis. In some ways this will be an unusual sibling. For one thing, it will be a fraternal twin, even though considerably younger. For another, the Journal will have played a significant role in its parentage.

The decision to found a sister journal, in the shape of the Review, was made as a consequence of the fact that the Journal had, for some time, to refuse papers which were eminently suitable for publication, on the grounds that they did not deal strictly with 'pure' psychoanalysis. Certainly the occasional 'applied' psychoanalytical paper appeared, but such papers were, on the whole, regretfully rejected. It was certainly not possible, because of the pressure on Journal space, to reprint 'classic' papers after the first (highly successful) venture of this sort a few years ago, when well-known papers by James Strachey and Edward Bibring reappeared in the pages of the Journal. Certainly it was not possible to commission papers which reflect trends in psychoanalytic thought and practice in non-English speaking countries, a subject in which most psychoanalysts are interested.

All of this pointed in the direction of founding a sister journal, to be published in association with the International Journal, and the new Review was conceived and began its period of gestation. The Review will not only contain papers on 'applied' psychoanalysis, but will also provide an outlet for papers on child psychoanalysis.
