It is the style of our scholarly quarterly to publish thought-provoking, clearly written articles usually based upon psychoanalytic/psychological insight and developed with examples from history, current events, and the human experience. We are open to all psychological and psychohistorical approaches and prefer that articles be personalized, without psychoanalytic/psychological terminology or jargon. At the moment, we are converting to a modified version of the latest APA citation system, which will have very few references and those overwhelmingly for direct quotes. We emphasize good literary style without referring to authorities except when essential. Indeed, we discourage citations except where there are quotations or they are otherwise essential. Submissions the editors deem suitable are anonymously refereed in our double blind system. Once you have submitted your article, please do not make any further edits to the piece until we return it to you if necessary.

For those who are not familiar with our publication and its sponsor, Clio’s Psyche is in its 28th year of publication by the Psychohistory Forum, a 40-year-old organization of academics, therapists, and laypeople holding regular scholarly meetings in Manhattan, at international conventions, and virtually. For information on our publication and back issues over a year old, go to our website at cliospsyche.org/archives. Write me for information on how to join our group and read our print journal.

We hope you can join this important endeavor. Many of our readers tell us that they find our publication to be a lively, compelling read that provides in-depth analyses. Please forward this Call for Papers to any colleagues (including associations or electronic mailing lists) who may be interested. If you have any questions, please e-mail Inna Rozentsvit at inna.rozentsvit@gmail.com or Paul Elovitz at cliospsycheeditor@gmail.com. Inna Rozentsvit will be the guest editor for the issue and Paul Elovitz as co-editor.
