We are living through tumultuous times. The Journal hopes to consider and document two significant issues in particular: the Covid-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement*.
We therefore invite you to submit either full papers (8,000 words), or briefer pieces (up to 4,000 words), on any facet of your experience of these phenomena that you think might be of interest to our readers. We will be particularly interested in papers that discuss and explore how these issues have manifested and been reflected within your consulting rooms – what have these momentous events raised in you and your patients and the process of analysis? And for Covid-19, how have you and your patients adjusted to virtual ways of working or other aspects of the pandemic e.g. issues around ‘infection’?
We are especially hoping to hear from our global readership about how you have been affected in your part of the world. Papers will be submitted to our normal process of review.
Please submit papers by October 30th 2020; for information on the process of submission please visit our website: https://thejap.org/resources/submit-an-article
We very much look forward to hearing from you.

* If there are other issues of particular importance to you we would, of course, also be pleased to receive papers concerning those and their impact within the consulting room and beyond.
