The Committee is specifically seeking book proposals on clinical and theoretical psychoanalysis and would seek to encourage single authored proposals.  Members and candidates who have not published with the IPA are strongly encouraged to apply. IPA Publications Committee Editors are proactively encouraging authors to publish and share Covid-19 related content (ideas for either a book chapter or entire book will be considered.)
  • A clear introduction of the book is required which illustrates the content and meaningfulness of the book to a psychoanalytical readership.
  • TWO chapters are required that are specific of the book.
  • Statement of aims: what are you doing differently, in a more innovative way, or simply, better than existing books?
  • Proposals must be sent in ENGLISH - the IPA does not cover the costs of translations.
  • Note that all editing and marketing costs are covered by the IPA and as such book royalties are paid to the IPA only.

To send your proposal or for more information please contact:  Rhoda Bawdekar, Publishing Manager [email protected]orld
