Jungian Society for Scholarly Studies (JSSS)

The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.-- Carl Jung


Call for Papers

Submissions are invited for the 2016 volume of the Jungian Journal of Scholarly Studies (JJSS). The theme of this volume is Nature and the Feminine: Psychological and Cultural Reflections.

JJSS is only published on-line at www.jungiansociety.org.

Length: The main criterion is that the manuscript offers the best development of a clear thesis. The following guidelines are flexible: 4000—9000 words for articles; 1000—1250 words for reviews.

Illustrations: black and white as well as color images are acceptable; copyright is required.

Manuscripts will first be evaluated with regard to suitability for submission to peer review. Those suitable will then 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 (Accepted for publication, Accepted with minor revisions, Major revisions and resubmission requested, Not accepted at this time).  Relevant comments of the reviewers will be made available to the author.

Nowhere in the content of the paper should the author's identity be noted (unless unavoidable). Please include a cover letter with name, paper title, affiliation, e-mail address, and brief biographical information of 25-50 words in a second attachment.

Include an abstract of up to 150 words with the submission.

Authors are encouraged to include a literature-review/theoretical-orientation that clearly embeds the piece in the literature and research being done in its field(s).  Often revisions are requested when this piece is absent or insufficient.

Only one paper per author will be considered. An author may, however, also be one of a multi-authored submission as long as s/he is not the principle author. Authors also may submit a book review.

Submissions will only be accepted electronically. 

Please send submissions to: Peter C. Dunlap This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Submission deadline is Oct. 31st, 2015.  Submissions will be acknowledged.
