In terms of content, we are excited by writing that speaks to:

  • Clinical psychoanalytic issues and novel formulations regarding lived clinical practice;

  • Experimental and emergent advances in theory;

  • Different contemporary movements in psychoanalytic thinking;

  • Controversies in the field of psychoanalysis and related areas (philosophy, the humanities, literature and the human (social) sciences);

  • New forms of psychopathology;

  • The future of psychoanalysis;

  • The history of psychoanalysis;

  • Extending conversations between different languages in psychoanalysis or interest areas.


We are not interested in:

  • Simple explications of theory (whichever theory that may be);

  • Introductory texts for analysts.

Blinded Review:

EJP utilizes a blinded peer review process. Articles should therefore be stripped of identifying markers of the author(s) identity prior to submission.


Abstract and Keywords:

Manuscripts must include an abstract (maximum 250 words) on the first page of the manuscript. After the abstract, authors should provide five keywords.



EJP does not set a hard maximal limit for word-count for any paper. However, EJP only accepts texts longer than 60,000 strokes (empty spaces included) in exceptional cases.



References must be listed in alphabetical order. Each reference should be cited in the text itself, and each text cited must be included in the References section.
