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.
Robin McCoy Brooks and Erik D. Goodwyn
