Peer Review Policy

American Imago encourages submission of original scholarly papers relating psychoanalytic concepts to any area of the human sciences (e.g. history, literature, the arts, film, music,  psychosocial experience, politics, etc.). Submissions should be non-simultaneous, but translations are acceptable. After preliminary review by the Editor, submissions are sent to one or two reviewers for double-blind review. Reviewers evaluate the quality of scholarship, clarity of expression and originality of submissions and recommend acceptance, rejection or revision. Review reports are sent to authors. If revisions are recommended, authors may re-submit papers for a second review process leading to final acceptance or rejection.

American Imago publishes reviews and review essays of books and special events related to its mission. Reviews may be submitted or solicited by the Editor, and they are reviewed for quality and expression by the Editor before acceptance or rejection.

Occasionally, the Editor may solicit papers and arrange for special issues on topics of contemporary interest.
