Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

This is the first editorial written since the Covid-19 pandemic took hold. The world has been rocked and shaken by these events, which remind us of our vulnerability, our interdependence and our community. Many of our readers will have lost loved ones - we are brought together by our losses. Our analytic practices have been affected as well, and many of us have had to move to working virtually. We released a special edition of the Journal, which included papers on working on-line, on trauma and on the body, and which we hope you might have found helpful. Hopefully, by the time this September edition is published, there will have been further, substantial progress with addressing the virus.

In recent weeks we have also been appalled by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, which has prompted such spontaneous outrage focused on the Black Lives Matter movement. These events also remind us of our interdependence, community and responsibility to others. In this issue we have a paper by Jane Johnson on race and I would refer you back to the June 2019 edition of the Journal, which focused on these issues, and in which we have papers by Fanny Brewster, Alan Vaughan, Helen Morgan and Ruth Calland. Ruth's paper won the Fordham Prize for that year.

Here in the UK we are grieving the loss of our dear friend and contributor to the Journal, Alessandra Cavalli, although Alessandra reached many across the world - in Russia and Mexico in particular. She had recently submitted a paper and we will hopefully be publishing it in the November edition of the Journal. This edition is also brought to a close by the obituary for Angela Connolly, another sad loss to our Jungian community and a long-term friend of the Journal - Angela served as European Deputy Editor from 2002 to 2008; her obituary has been written by Joe Cambray, who was Editor of the Journal at that time.

We have also had to delay our São Paulo conference due to the virus. Arrangements for the conference had been progressing well and it was set to be one of our best ever attended conferences. We have now rescheduled this for April 9-11, 2021 and we have decided that in the interests of safety for all it is best if this now becomes an online conference - which we hope means that even more people will attend! We will make any further announcements on our website:
