About the Journal
The oldest free-standing psychoanalytic journal in North America, The Psychoanalytic Quarterly is published every January, April, July, and October. Each issue contains from six to eight original articles, a section of in-depth book reviews and book review essays. In addition, a unique series of abstracts appears frequently, summarizing selected international journals. A special section of the Quarterly is devoted to the examination of clinical process from a variety of viewpoints, utilizing presentations of case material.
An independent journal with a strong clinical focus, the Quarterly is not wedded to any one school of psychoanalytic thought. Its editorial goals are to encourage and publish the most rigorous original papers from North America and around the world, representing all contemporary psychoanalytic perspectives on the theories, practices, research endeavors, and applications of adult and child psychoanalysis.
