The International Council of Editors of Psychoanalytic Journals is devoted to enhancing the efforts of publications in psychoanalysis and related fields.  This website contains information about different member journals, the kinds of papers they are interested in publishing, and their editorial policies.

The editors meet annually during the meeting of the American Psychoanalytic Association in New York City.  We also share information during the year about matters relevant to editing and publishing psychoanalytic journals.  We seek also to enhance the visibility and understanding of psychoanalysis in the general population.

If you are the editor of a psychoanalytic journal, please join our organization by contacting the North American co-chair, Mark J. Blechner, Ph.D., or the International co-chair, Werner Bohleber, M.D.
