International Journal of Jungian Studies

Editors-in-Chief: Robin McCoy Brooks and Erik Goodwyn
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.

The editors 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, sociologists, bio-ethicists, neuroscientists, and other sciences including students of these approaches in an ongoing critique/engagement with Analytical Psychology such as literature, film and media studies and fine art or art history. The IJJS wishes to continue the tradition of C.G. Jung in being open to a broad range of intellectual and experiential traditions while seeking to understand the human experience.

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.

Jung’s work and the history of analytical psychology. IAJS aims to understand contemporary and historical cultural trends and promotes:

  • Scholarship relating analytical psychology to the arts and humanities, social sciences and philosophy, as well as clinical, methodological, and theoretical research;
  • The application of the concepts of Jungian and post-Jungian analytical psychology to literature, theatre, film, media, and religious studies;
  • Applications in medicine, physics, and the philosophy and history of science; and
  • Practice-based and applied research in education, anthropology, therapy, and the behavioral, semiotic, and human sciences.

Membership is open to those from any discipline, artistic, or cultural practice, including analysts and psychotherapists, with an interest in Jungian depth psychology and post-Jungian studies at a scholarly level. Membership privileges include access to ‘member only’ areas on the website, stimulating online discussions, regular in-depth topics disseminated through online seminars, international conferences, and publishing opportunities.
