The JCP, first published in 1963, is the official journal of the ACP. It aims to represent the pluralism and clinical practice, theory and research in psychoanalytic child and adolescent psychotherapy, to promote the exchange of diverse perspectives and to provide a forum where new ideas can emerge and be debated. We are advertising for a fixed term Assistant Editor post. The role is also being created to help us address the delays in publication of Issues that we currently have. This role offers the opportunity to learn the processes involved at all the various stages of commissioning, peer reviewing and preparing papers for publication. It is also an opportunity to get involved in thinking through editorial decisions with the other editors and the Journal Group. We are looking for applicants who share our passion for continuing to extend the reach of the Journal: geographically; in terms of our engagement with other disciplines; and in terms of engaging with the external world issues of class, race, culture etc.
