This is our 22nd Year of Publication

We had an Extra Special Issue (July, 2016) on "Mindfulness and Psychotherapy".
It is still available as an e-issue, as a PDF download.
There is a 'light version' of this available free, here.

The full version is available for €15.00 [see CATALOGUE: Vol. 20 (2016) Extra Special Issue]

We also have an on-line 'Special Issue' on "Psychotherapy vs. Spirituality" - also available - from the website page: "Read Current On-line Articles Here."

We are also starting to publish articles on-line, in advance of publication. To access these, please click on the "Read Current Online Articles Here" link (above, left-hand, side-bar). These articles (those that are available) are free for you to read - given the time limits! There will be other on-line articles available soon.

The 'publisher', the European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP) is a member of the World Council for Psychotherapy (WCP); and an International (Non-Governmental Organisation) NGO member of the Council of Europe. For more details about the EAP, please go to the EAP's website: www.europsyche.org

The IJP was founded in 1996. 
It is published by the European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP). 
We currently print about 500 copies per issue, with three issues a year, in March, July and November.

Back issues (printed copies) and PDF files of the whole issue, of issues from 2005, plus PDF files of all the different individual articles (from 2005), are available as automatic downloads (see the Catalogue: left-hand, side-bar) using PayPal.


We are in the process of applying to various indexing organisations - like PubMed Central (PMC), Scopus, PsychInfo, and the Thompson-Reuters Social Science Citation Index - for proper professional recognition, so as to obtain an impact factor, based on the number of citations: so, watch this space!

We currently only have an impact factor from International Scientific Indexing: 2.251 (2013); 2.679 (2014); 2,701 (2015); 2.729 (2016): see here.

Acceptance Rates: We have also recently been asked to publish our acceptance rates: we calculate these over a 3-year period: 
For 2013-2015: The "3-year acceptance rate" over 9 issues (9 articles rejected out of 63 published) was about
86% (85.71).
For 2014-2016:
The "3-year acceptance rate" over 9 issues (18 articles rejected out of 59 published) was about 69% (69.49).
For 2015-2017: The "3-year acceptance rate" over 9 issues (18 articles rejected out of 56 published) was about 68% (67.86).
