The European Journal of Ecopsychology (EJE) invites original submissions which contribute to the existing literature on ecopsychology and related topics, in any of the following categories:
- Essays are either pieces of writing which describe the development of theoretical or conceptual ideas, or simply an extended discussion of a specific topic (3-10,000 words).
- The Forum category represents a collection of short pieces from several expert authors giving their views on a specific question/topic (e.g., eco-anxiety). The format is flexible and such pieces are intended to give a 'snapshot' of opinions about any topic or practise relevant to ecopsychology. Insights are short pieces of work that encapsulate a novel insight or a developing idea of the authors (typically <1,000 words if text-based).
- A Media Review provides a synopsis of and commentary on any recently published books, documentaries, film or other relevant media words (typically <2,000 words, no abstract required).
- Practice Pieces are accounts of novel methodology, therapeutic techniques and practises, or every-day life-practises which relate to ecopsychology concepts and theories (<3,000 words).
- Research Papers describe the findings of original qualitative or quantitative research. They will have a standard format consisting of an Introduction, the Method, Results and Discussion (3-10,000 words).
- Review Papers are pieces of work which brings together previously published work (empirical or otherwise) to provide a summary of a specific area or topic, along with an informed discussion (3-10,000 words).
Each submission (except Media Reviews & Forum pieces, which undergo Editorial review only) will be anonymously peer-reviewed by a minimum of two reviewers with relevant expertise/experience. All manuscripts should be saved as either Rich Text Format (.rtf), LibreOffice (.odt), Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx) or ASCII (.txt) files.
