CALL FOR PAPERS, POEMS, AND VISUAL ART

The Journal of Jungian Scholarly Studies , ( JJSS ), a peer-reviewed academic journal, is calling for papers for the 2017 volume. This volume is dedicated to the theme of the Jungian Society for Scholarly Studies conference held in June, 2016, in Santa Fe, New Mexico: Earth/Psyche: Earth’s Relations to Psyche. Persons having attended the conference are particularly invited to submit their presentations, revised and developed. It is not necessary to have attended the conference in order to submit a paper.

JJSS , partially in response to the frequent inclusion of poetry and visual art during the 2016 conference, is also issuing a call for original poetry and original visual art, again focusing on the theme : Earth/Psyche: Earth’s Relations to Psyche. See below for details concerning how to submit original poems and original visual art.

Submission deadline is Dec. 5th, 2016. Submissions will be acknowledged.

JJSS seeks to publish interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary scholarship that interprets, expands, applies, critiques, and/or theorizes Jungian and post-Jungian concepts in order to illuminate not only psychology but also other areas of study. These areas include but need not be limited to the sciences, religion, philosophy, history, culture, myth and fairy tale, literature, art, sculpture, music, film, architecture, the environment, gender, sexuality, race, politics, and theory.

Policy regarding multiple submissions : No volume of the journal will publish more than one essay by a single author. For the 2017 volume, contributors may submit in two of the following three categories: essays, poems, visual art. However, an author may also participate in a multi-authored article as long as s/he is not the principal author. Further, a contributor of an article, or of poems, or of visual art may also submit a book review.

The editor is Inez Martinez. The assistant editors are Peter Dunlap and Elizabeth Nelson. The assistant editor for poetry is Lisa Pounders. The assistant editor for visual art is Heather Taylor-Zimmerman. The copy editor is Matthew Fike.

The journal is published online at www.jungiansociety.org . Submissions will only be accepted electronically. Essays (not poems or visual art) should be sent as an attachment (Microsoft Word only) to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

PRE-REVIEW CHECKLIST FOR ESSAYS

JSSS offers the following set of guidelines to assist authors in preparing an essay for possible publication. Please check your manuscript against the checklist before submitting it . We emphatically discourage authors from submitting an unrevised conference or term paper but, rather, urge them to develop and refine their ideas prior to submission. We expect authors to write in clear language that does not assume the reader’s familiarity with Jungian theories or terms. In other words, authors must offer some definition of terms that a well-educated audience could use to understand Jung’s ideas. Authors should ground their own thinking in a common language while simultaneously working to make Jung’s work more accessible to others.

The likelihood of acceptance will be enhanced if the essay:

1) demonstrates awareness of the journal’s audience (authors are encouraged to look through previous volumes);

2) introduces the topic in a clear, cogent manner and develops a central unifying theme, premise, or idea;

3) includes well-constructed paragraphs with strong topic sentences that contribute to developing the central unifying idea;

4) has few or no sentence-level structural errors such as fragments, dangling modifiers, end-punctuation errors, and subject-verb agreement problems;

5) uses active voice;

6) uses good transitional sentences between paragraphs and/or sections to create coherence;

7) concludes with a paragraph or section that reiterates or emphasizes the central unifying idea that the author develops in the body of the essay;

8) supports all knowledge claims through evidence including but not limited to the effective use of appropriate, well-regarded scholarly sources;

9) includes the thinking of other scholars whose work is relevant to the central argument in one of several ways: to support and elaborate the central idea; to acknowledge, extend, and/or qualify a knowledge claim; or to refute a knowledge claim;

10) incorporates personal material sparingly unless it supports a concept the author is postulating in the essay;

11) uses quotations effectively by a) being discriminating in selecting which ones and how many to use; b) introducing quotations to make a point; c) commenting on quotations after using them to clarify the point being made; and d) correctly citing them;

12) properly uses parallel structure in lists;

13) is faithful to the selected documentation style, MLA 8th edition or APA 6th edition, including verb tense; note that https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/ provides a helpful guide to MLA and APA formats;

14) cites all listed sources and lists all cited sources.

Submissions that significantly fail to meet these guidelines will be returned to the author with an indication of the areas needing attention.

 

REVIEW PROCESS FOR ESSAYS

Manuscripts that fulfill the criteria listed in the pre-review will be forwarded for blind peer review to at least two reviewers. Each reviewer will complete an independent report on the submission and return it to the editor, who will inform the author of the result: 1) accepted for publication, 2) accepted with minor revisions, 3) major revisions and resubmission requested, or 4) not accepted at this time. Relevant comments by the reviewers will be made available to the author.

 

CALL FOR POEMS FOR THE 2017 VOLUME OF THE JOURNAL OF JUNGIAN SCHOLARLY STUDIES

CALL FOR VISUAL ART FOR THE 2017 VOLUME OF THE JOURNAL OF JUNGIAN SCHOLARLY STUDIES

Jung’s paradigm-shifting insight that the unconscious evolves consciousness through images forms the basis of a vision of scholarship that includes visual art. The Jungian Journal of Scholarly Studies invites single images and feature-worthy series (of up to 7 images) that illuminate the theme of the 2016 JSSS conference: Earth/Psyche: Earth’s Relations to Psyche. We also invite submissions for the cover of the 2017 volume, which will be dedicated to the theme.

FORMAT:

Submissions should be sent in low-res jpeg images . They should be fitted into a 1000px by 1000px box and saved to medium jpeg quality to keep the file sizes small. PDFs will not be accepted. E-mail submissions of CDs, DVDs, and web links are acceptable if comps can be easily downloaded (flash-based slide shows are not easy, for example). Artists whose submissions are accepted will be asked to send a publishable larger file. Statements of supporting text of up to 350 words are welcome. A biography of 50 words or fewer is required. If images by other artists are included, appropriate citation and attribution must be given using current APA formatting. See below for an example.
