Submission and Review Requirements
[Authors] should regard the reputable publication of an article as an honor…. [Their] obligations are the same as those of all writers. The first is integrity, whether it be scientific or artistic, and the second is craftsmanship. Craftsmanship here is almost synonymous with literacy. …By maintaining ruthlessly high literary standards… [authors] are forced to express themselves gracefully.
Berne, E. (1966). Principles of Group Treatment New York: Oxford University Press, p. 194
The Transactional Analysis Journal (TAJ) welcomes submissions from all theoretical perspectives and fields of application, including quantitative and qualitative research, case studies, literature surveys, book reviews, and reflective essays.
Only original material—not previously published in English and not under review by another English-language publication—is eligible for consideration and inclusion in the TAJ. As an exception, any paper previously published in a language other than English will be considered if professionally translated into English prior to submission.
Since the TAJ is a refereed journal, all suitable submissions undergo anonymous peer review. Authors are expected to familiarize themselves with the criteria used by the peer reviewers, summarized below, and to adhere to the technical requirements for submission. Authors whose writing is translated into English are responsible for submitting a professional English translation. Manuscripts that do not meet these requirements will be returned for correction and resubmission.
