Dana Birksted Breen and Bob Michels

As we begin our tenure as editors of the International Journal of Psychoanalysis we envision a journal that will change while maintaining its ties to the richest parts of our psychoanalytic traditions. This balance between change and continuity has always characterized psychoanalysis at its best, both in our theoretical discourse and in our consultation rooms.

The IJP has a unique opportunity to promote internationalization, and our plans are shaped by our commitment to that project. The Journal's role is to provide a forum for the presentation of perspectives from psychoanalytic communities around the world, and also to promote conversation among them. The way to guarantee the continuing vitality of psychoanalysis is to facilitate interest in the alternative models developed by analysts trained in different traditions. We will strive to participate in and to encourage that interest.

In order to implement these goals, we are introducing several new features that will appear regularly. We will invite analysts from around the world to write describing developments that are interesting, exciting, or of concern in their communities. The first of these, a letter from Melbourne, Australia, appears in this issue. We will also publish English translations of key psychoanalytic papers that until now have been available only in their original languages. We will invite discussions of these papers that will be designed to spell out their original context and to articulate their significance for contemporary thinking.
