Criteria for Evaluating Interdisciplinary Papers for the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association

Bennett Simon, M.D.

THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA ARE INTENDED for use in assisting in the evaluation of individual pieces. They are designed as an aid to making editorial judgments, not a substitute for the individual editor's method and style of reading. This list will be refined and clarified with use, but at present we wish to specify some of the criteria implicitly we use. At some point it may be suitable for use by authors as guidelines for preparing their own contributions. The criteria are not a substitute for individuality of style. No one paper will meet all the criteria.

None of the examples given here are intended to limit the choice of subject matter which, broadly defined, is constituted by the relations among psychoanalysis and the humanities, the natural sciences, and the social sciences. A special section on interdisciplinary articles involving psychoanalysis and the sciences or mathematics is included where there are issues somewhat different from writing on the humanities and the social sciences.

1. The paper should define a problem or a question, either in psychoanalysis or in the other discipline—a problem that invites or requires some interdisciplinary perspective involving psychoanalysis. The definition of the problem should locate the paper in relation to psychoanalysis and another discipline, and define the goal of the inquiry.
