Call for Contributions: May 2019

Themes and Deadlines

As of May 2019 the Editors have not set a date for submissions or a theme for volume 7. However, as we seek to more to a more continuous on-line publication model, we welcome submissions anytime.

The next volume will be not be a single-themed volume, so we welcome submissions on a variety of themes.

One emerging theme, on which we would welcome articles, is the relationship between the constructs and practices of mindfulness and mindful movement and the Feldenkrais Method. If you would like to write on this topic, then please contact us. A further framing of this theme will be posted soon.

A final deadline for inclusion volume 7 will be posted soon.

Review Process

All articles are reviewed by at least two readers. They are asked to recommend if an article should be accepted as submitted or with small edits, whether it is suitable for publication with additional re-writing and editing, or whether it is not suitable. If there is a significant disagreement between reviewers, then a third and possibly a fourth reviewer will read the article. Resubmitted articles are again assessed by the original readers.

Final decisions about inclusion of submitted article are made by the Editor(s). The Editors may be involved in a round or rounds of final edits with authors.  Final drafts are proof-read and checked by our Harvard formatting editor, and final formatting and referencing edits may also be sent to the author for resolution.

Our current regular reviewers are:

  • Cornelia Berens
  • Hillel Braude
  • Karol Connors
  • Diane Hanneman
  • Thomas Kampe
  • Zoran Kovich
  • Cliff Smyth

Other specialist reviewers are recruited for particular themes or articles.
