Papers for the International Journal: Future Editorial Policy

David Tuckett

Next year the International Journal of Psycho-Analysis will celebrate its 75th birthday. We have already marked the fiftieth anniversary of Freud's death and, whether we date the birth of psychoanalysis to the publication of Studies on Hysteria (1893-5) or to The Interpretation of Dreams (1900), we are about to celebrate the centenary of the foundation of our discipline. There are now almost ten thousand trained psychoanalysts recognised by the International Psychoanalytical Association, and psychoanalysis is practised in many parts of the world under a variety of cultural, social and political traditions within a diverse, expanding and highly pluralistic set of theories and practices. At this time and at the beginning of the term of office of a new editorial team, appointed for the first time after a widespread process of consultation, it seems appropriate to reflect on the content of the papers published by the International Journal of Psycho-Analysis and to give some consideration to the policies that might guide the Editors and the members of Editorial Boards when selecting papers to publish.

The International Journal of Psycho-Analysis was started by Ernest Jones under the specific direction of Sigmund Freud, for the purpose of serving as an international means of communicating psychoanalysis in the English language. It is not always realised that it was founded independently from the International Psychoanalytical Association and is owned and managed by the British Psycho-Analytical Society, who have always regarded it as a duty to exercise their stewardship of the Journal as a genuinely international organ of publication and who have gradually widened the personnel on the Editorial Boards to achieve a truly international and pluralistically-oriented editorial group.
