David E. Scharff
This peer-reviewed journal proposes to explore the introduction of psychoanalysis, psychoanalytic therapy, and the wider application of psychoanalytic ideas into China. It aims to have articles authored by Chinese and Western contributors, to explore ideas that apply to the Chinese clinical population, cultural issues relevant to the practice of analysis and psychotherapy, and to the cultural interface between Western ideas underpinning psychoanalysis, and the richness of Chinese intellectual and philosophical ideas that analysis must encounter in the process of its introduction.
Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in China features theoretical and clinical contributions, philosophical and cultural explorations, applications such as the analytic study of art, cinema and theatre, social aspects of analytic thought, and wider cultural and social issues that set the context for clinical practice.
The journal is published twice yearly, in English and also in Chinese.

Articles for consideration should be addressed to the Editor and sent to David E. Scharff – firstname.lastname@example.org
Procedure for submissions
Articles should be typewritten, using double spacing, in Microsoft Word format.
Submissions of full papers, including abstract and references, should be a maximum of 6,000 words in length. They should comprise two files, to assist in the editorial review process:
– The first should include the paper, together with its title, a list of keywords, a list of references, and an abstract.
– The second should include a cover page for the paper with its title, the author’s name and contact details (including postal and email addresses), and a brief biographical summary of up to 150 words.
Language: Contributions should be written in English. Authors may choose to use British English or American English in first drafts, but please note the final material needs to be supplied in British English.
House style: Please view the checklist for Phoenix journal articles here to ensure your submission follows house style.
Abstracts: All papers must be accompanied by an abstract. This should be a maximum of 200 words.
References: Please see detailed instructions here.
Artwork: The inclusion of figures and images in contributions must be approved by the editors. If the editors agree, then the following applies. Unless otherwise agreed in advance, all artwork must be submitted in black and white.
FORMAT: The preferred format is high-resolution PDFs, TIFF or JPEGs (please note that any JPEGs downloaded from the internet will only be 72dpi and too low resolution).
RESOLUTION: black and white artwork (bitmap): 600 dpi. Photographs or any shaded matter (greyscale): 300 dpi. Fine tints in the artwork are not allowed as they do not reproduce well once printed.
IMPORTANT: Graphics embedded in the Word file will not be of sufficient resolution for print-quality; they are useful as a guideline for positioning and identification purposes only. Therefore, please ensure that all graphics are supplied separately in PDF, TIFF or JPEG format, as specified above, in addition to being embedded in the Word document.
Permissions: For information regarding the reproduction of others’ work, click here.
Author’s declaration: Authors are asked to complete and send with their manuscript an “author’s declaration” confirming confidentiality, originality, and copyright. A copy of this declaration can be found here.
Confidentiality and consent: Contributors are expected to use all possible means of assuring the confidentiality of those about whom they write, such as disguising significant aspects of the case material. Alternatively, authors should acquire their subjects’ consent. In general terms, contributors are required to follow the procedure adopted in their own countries which govern the conduct of their work with human or animal subjects. If requiring further advice, authors are invited to discuss these matters with a member of the journal’s International Advisory Board in their country.
Originality: Papers submitted for publication are accepted on the understanding that they are the author’s / authors’ own work and that where the work of others is referred to or quoted, this is clearly attributed. Papers should not have been published elsewhere or be currently submitted to other publications.
Peer review: All papers will be subject to peer review. In order to preserve anonymity in this process, the authors should supply the editors with two separate documents, as detailed above. When assessing the acceptability of the submission, peer reviewers are asked to consider the following questions:
– Is the paper readable, accessible, and interesting?
– Does it make appropriate use of psychoanalytic theory?
– If applicable is there appropriate use of case material
– Does it make a contribution to learning about forensic psychotherapy?
Copy dates: Whilst the editors will welcome contributions at any time, authors should note that final copy dates for forthcoming issues will normally be on 1 April and 1 September of each year.
Editorial procedure: Contributors will receive an acknowledgement of the receipt of their submissions. Following the process of peer review, the editors will decide either (i) to accept or reject or (ii) to accept, subject to modifications. The editors’ decision will be final.
