The Feldenkrais Research Journal focuses on research into the Feldenkrais Method® and related fields of practice, thought, research, action, and awareness. This peer reviewed Journal seeks to engage in a dialogue about research within the Feldenkrais professional field and beyond.
Call for Contributions
The IFF Feldenkrais Reseach Journal has been on pause for the last year due to the global Coronavirus pandemic. We are pleased to announce that we are currently seeking articles for two volumes to be produced similtaneously.
Volume 7: General volume, with a special section on mindfulness and the Feldenkrais Method.
Volume 8: Special Volume: Approaches to Research
Hillel Braude, MD, PhD will be Guest Co-editor for this volume.
Time frame: We are seeking papers by April 30, 2022. We are now doing continuous on-line publication: submit an article and it will published as the editorial and formatting process is finished, so submissions before and after that date will be accepted.
Submitting an Article
While the review process of articles is blinded, we invite you go get in touch with the General Editor and Guest Editors if you have a paper in mind to discuss your ideas and suitability for publication in the FRJ. Part of the function of the FRJ is to support writing in our field: firstname.lastname@example.org
All papers are reviewed with a double-blinded peer review process with at least two reviewers. They may be accepted as submitted, accepted subject to revisions, or not accepted for publication. See links here for more details about the editorial process and format for submissions.
Length: 3,000 to 5,000 words
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.
