IJJS Journal

Greetings members and friends of the International Association for Jungian Studies.

We (Erik D. Goodwyn and Robin McCoy Brooks) would like to introduce ourselves as the newly appointed editors-in-chief of The International Journal of Jungian Studies (IJJS) and express our appreciation for the ongoing support of the IAJS board of directors. 

The journal’s mission continues to bring Jungian theory and practice into dialogue with a variety of academic and clinical areas of study. Maintaining a multi-disciplinary openness means that we encourage the submission of papers from Jungian Studies academics, psychoanalysts of all traditions -including Analytical Psychology, philosophers, anthropologists, critical theorists, feminists, political theorists, world-religious studies, Bio-medicine and other sciences including students of these approaches in an ongoing critique/engagement with Analytical Psychology. This practice grows from the tradition of C. G. Jung who was open to and influenced by a broad range of intellectual and experiential traditions that informed his corpus throughout his life while seeking to understand the human experience.

Together, we will adjust to the pragmatics of working with our new publisher- Brill creatively formatting the journal. This means that in addition to our typical format, you may look forward to occasional themed journal editions that feature a major paper with a number of solicited responses to that paper. These themes may include singular topics or be responses to a question we pose where papers are solicited from a variety of traditions including from our own pond in response to that question. As usual, we can look forward to other kinds of special editions that are the outcomes of various IAJS conferences guest edited with our support.

The Journal

The International Journal of Jungian Studies ( IJJS) bridges the professional, clinical, and academic worlds of Jungian Studies for an international audience. 

It brings Jungian theory and practice into dialogue and debate with a wide variety of academic areas of study, and therapeutic concerns. Academic areas include but are not limited to, philosophy, political thought, literature, linguistics, religious studies, education, sociology, business studies, history, film and media, fine art and art history and neuroscience. As a multidisciplinary forum, it is dedicated to the exploration and exchange of views about the broader cultural legacy of Jung’s work and the history of analytical psychology. 

The IJJS publishes peer-reviewed, cutting-edge original articles of high academic quality. The journal is committed to embracing the diversity of Jungian thought and welcomes articles reporting research on: 

  • analytical psychology themes from academic, clinical, symbolic, cultural and inter-cultural perspectives
  • comparative Jungian research in relation to other psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic themes
  • the interface between Jungian studies and other academic disciplines

The IJJS is published by Brill in collaboration with the International Association for Jungian Studies.
