Strengthening international connections and the spread of ideas, working papers posted on IJP Open will appear in the language in which they are submitted (English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian, or German).
Encouraging communication between different cultures, it will also be possible for readers to comment in any of the six languages. In addition, a translation function is provided so that participation is not restricted.
Working papers eventually selected for publication in the International Journal of Psychoanalysis will continue to be professionally translated by the Journal.
At the current time the International Journal of Psychoanalysis translates roughly a third of the published papers and with the launch of IJP Open we aim to encourage more non-English submissions.
