Procedure for Submissions

Manuscripts should be type written, using double spacing. Submissions should be made using Microsoft Word 97- 2003, and identified with the title of the file. All contributions should be addressed to the Editor, cfpeditor@tavistockrelationships.ac.uk

Submissions of full papers should be normally no more than 6,000 – 8,000 words in length. They should comprise two files, to assist in the editorial review process. One should include the paper, together with its title, a list of keywords, a list of references, and an abstract. The other should include a cover page for the paper with its title, the author's name and contact details, and a brief biographical summary of up to 150 words.

Language: Contributions should be written in English. Authors may choose to use British English or American English, as long as the form chosen is used consistently throughout the text.

Abstracts: All papers must be accompanied by an abstract of up to 200 words in length.

Footnotes and endnotes will only be accepted under exceptional circumstances.

References: See detailed instructions below.

Author's Declaration: Authors are asked to complete and send with their manuscript an Author’s Declaration confirming confidentiality, originality, and copyright. A copy of this Declaration can be downloaded from http://www.tavistockrelationships.ac.uk/policy-research/couple-family-psychoanalysis. If there is more than one author, please ensure that each author signs the declaration.

Confidentiality and consent: Contributors are expected to use all possible means of assuring the confidentiality of those about whom they write, such as by disguising significant aspects of the case material. Alternatively authors should acquire their subjects’ consent. In general terms contributors are required to follow the procedure adopted in their own countries which govern the conduct of their work with human or animal subjects. If requiring further advice, authors are invited to discuss these matters with a member of the Journal's International Advisory Board in their country.

Originality: Papers submitted for publication should not have been published elsewhere or be currently submitted to other publications.

Peer Review: All papers will be subject to peer review. In order to preserve anonymity in this process, authors should supply the Editor with two separate documents, as detailed above.

When assessing the acceptability of the submission, peer reviewers are asked to consider the following questions:

  • Is the paper readable, accessible and interesting?
  • Does it make appropriate use of psychoanalytic theory?
  • Is there appropriate use of case material?
  • Does it make a contribution to learning about couple and/or family relationships and/or couple / family psychotherapy?
  • Does the paper advance the integration of couple and family psychotherapy?

Copy Dates: Whilst the Editor will welcome contributions at any time, authors should note that final copy dates for forthcoming issues will normally be on 31st January and 31st July of each year.

Editorial Procedure: Contributors will receive an acknowledgement of the receipt of their submissions. Following the process of peer review the Editor will decide either (i) to accept or reject or (ii) to accept, subject to modifications. The Editor's decision will be final.

CHECKLIST

2. File containing cover page of paper, the author's name and contact details, biographical summary.
3. Completed Author’s Declaration(s).

Notes for Contributors

References and Quotations of Text should be compiled using the form used by Karnac Books, namely:

Text citations should appear in the form of the surname of the author(s) and the year of publication in parentheses. If more than one work is cited, the works should be ordered alphabetically by authors' surnames. In text references in parentheses, an ampersand should be used with two authors (and serial comma and ampersand with more than two). Complete references should then be given in a single reference section at the end of the manuscript. References in the reference list should be ordered alphabetically by the authors' surnames. Please repeat authors' names throughout the reference list, to enable us to use automatic alphabetical sorting.

Text citations and reference list entries must agree, both in spelling and in date.

In the case of two or more authors with the same surname, initials should also be given in the text citation. If two or more works by the same author were published in the same year, the letters "a", "b", etc. are appended to the date, both in the text citation and in the reference section. Please note that if references are added, identifying letters may have to be changed throughout the text.

If possible, historical dates should be given in the text, with the current edition in the Reference section: Bion, W. R. (1970). Attention and Interpretation. London: Tavistock. [Reprinted London: Karnac Books, 1984.]

In the case of Sigmund Freud references only, citations should follow the Standard Edition, Freud Bibliography, in terms of both date and identifying letter (e.g. "The Unconscious" is always listed as 1915e, even if no other 1915 work is cited in the book). This means that Freud references can be changed without checking throughout the text for other references. Please note that where there is a discrepancy in the date in the Standard Edition between the alphabetical listing and the Freud Bibliography (for example, Civilization and Its Discontents is 1930a [1929] in the alphabetical listing, but only 1930a in the Bibliography), we take the date from the Bibliography.

In the case of translations, if there are any direct quotes in the text, these must be drawn from an English edition, if one exists. In this case the relevant page number should be given in the text reference. If no English version exists, please add "[translated for this edition]" to the text reference. For books and articles that appeared originally in English, the English edition only is listed. For those that have been translated from another language, both the edition in the original language and the English translation can be given in the references.
