Call for Papers – Psy Cultures

Psy Cultures is a new, fully peer reviewed, on-line only, free-access international journal devoted to the discussion and debate of the transnational circulation of “psy knowledge” and the practices associated with it. We welcome papers for Vol 1 number 1 –to be published in August 2013- on topics related to the transnational diffusion of “psy knowledge”, understood in a broad sense, including psychoanalysis, psychiatry, psychology, neuro science, etc. By “psy culture” we do not only mean the development of the scientific disciplines related to the study of subjectivity and the mind, but also the emergence and development of all the associated discourses and practices, including different forms of reception, diffusion and circulation, whether they take place within the bounds of the scientific realm or not.

We particularly encourage the submission of manuscripts that take an interdisciplinary approach and accept them in Spanish, Portuguese, English and French, which will be published in their original language with abstracts in the other three. We also accept proposals for dossiers and for book reviews.

The deadline for the submission of papers for number 1 is April 2nd 2013. Please consult our page: for style. Papers should not be longer than 12000 words, including bibliography. We encourage authors to take advantage of the electronic format and include videos and interactive material.
