Publication Standards
ASCH Journal

The Editor of The ASCH’s journal, The Australian Journal of Clinical Hypnotherapy & Hypnosis welcomes your articles.

These publication standards will assist you in preparing and submitting your article.

The journal is published twice each year in the Australian Spring and Autumn.  Its focus is on the professional application of hypnosis and hypnotherapy, covering aspects of original clinical research, theoretical, historical and related reports, and book reviews.

The Journal is abstracted in Psychological Abstracts, PsycINFO database and EMBASE/Excerpta Medica.

All manuscripts, books for review, other editorial matters and journal enquiries should be addressed to:

Articles submitted for the Journal are reviewed by members of the Editorial Board and other qualified readers.  They are selected on the basis of merit, contribution and interest. The name of the author is not considered.

NOTE: Articles are rejected by the Editorial Board if they do not meet the required standards of academic journals. The most frequent reason is the absence of supportive referencing to other authoritative sources, from reading or other research, on the topic being written about. Personal opinion and theories about a subject, like simple case studies, need to be backed up by formal references to the work of other writers who have investigated the same or related fields.

Subscribers to the Journal include most of the major hospitals and universities in Australia, the United Kingdom, the USA, Malaysia and New Zealand, where they are used for academic research, as well as for general reading.

Manuscripts for consideration should be submitted electronically to the editor or by mail on a USB drive. The submissions are to be double spaced in Microsoft Word.

Articles do not usually exceed 4,500 words.

The Editorial Board of the ASCH has adopted the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Fourth Edition (1994) as the guideline for reference citations.
