The Original Articles and Research Reports are accepted for publishing in the Journal of Preventive counselling.
Mostly articles are published in JPC which envisage reports of original research or systematic literature reviews. However, there are several other types of article that we are keen to publish, especially by new or less-experienced writers. We encourage submissions of briefer articles entitled 'In Practice' or 'Debate', which are more reflective pieces, stating opinion and encouraging debate. We also publish 'Literature review essays' which are themed critical reviews linking more than one related publications, illuminating theory or practice in novel ways. Finally, we are interested in ideas for interviews with key figures in the field, or someone who offers a unique perspective. Do not hesitate to contact us if your ideas contribute the objective of the journal. The papers, must, like all submissions, be contextualized in the literature and carry high academic standard and needless to add are peer reviewed.
