All submissions should be emailed to leeannpickrell@me.com

We welcome original submissions, not published or submitted for publication elsewhere (online or in print), from all parts of the world and from all disciplines. We do not accept feature articles, poems, interviews, or reviews as submissions that are in the process of being submitted elsewhere

Articles should reflect a psychological attitude and in depth exploration of the material. Do not assume that the reader has expertise in a related field.

Occasionally, significant articles that have not been published previously in English are accepted, if appropriate permissions are obtained. Contact the Editor for more information.

It is recommended that you contact the Editor if you have a question about your topic or the Review Editor to find out if a film or book or other work is already being reviewed.

Due to the number of submissions we receive, we regret that we are unable to read all

manuscripts and make suggestions prior to a formal submission.

Before submitting an article, we strongly advise that you examine several issues of Jung Journal to see if your article would be appropriate. We encourage you to have your paper properly edited prior to submission.  If necessary you will be asked to revise the paper before it can be sent to peer reviewers.  If your article requires substantial editing, you may be asked to work with a professional editor and then resubmit it.

The editorial and blind peer reviews of a feature article may take several months or more, due to the number of submissions we receive. However, please re-contact us after ten days if you do not receive an e-mail acknowledging your submission.

Poetry. At this time Jung Journal is not accepting unsolicited poetry submission.  Poetry Editor Paul Watsky is inviiting poets to submit work to him.  If you have questions about this, please contact Dr. Watsky.

If your article is accepted for publication, it will be edited and copy edited, with changes reviewed by you. Thank you for considering Jung Journal: Culture & Psyche.


These instructions are precise. If you are not familiar with formatting with Microsoft Word or preparing references and images, you may wish to obtain professional assistance.

Submit your manuscript to the Managing Editor, Leeann Pickrell, at leeannpickrell@me.com She will check it for completeness and return it to you if it is incomplete or not properly formatted.

Jung Journal: Culture & Psyche is formatted according to the standard of The Chicago Manual of Style (15th ed.), available as a book or online: www.chicagomanualofstyle.org


for all articles, including reviews and interviews

TITLE. We prefer titles of less than five words, but you may add a subtitle. Please also suggest a running title if your title is long.

If you are submitting a review, below the title of the review give the complete reference information for the book, film, or work of art. If you are reviewing a film based upon a book, include the complete reference for the book, as well.

AUTHOR’S NAME. No degrees or affiliations here. These can be included in the Author’s Statement, below.

TEXT. Continue to double-space in 12point Times New Roman font, regular, and left-justify throughout, except for poetry and long quotations (see below).

Indicate major headings by [1] and subheadings by [2].

Use a single, not double, space at the end of a sentence and after any punctuation, such as a comma, colon, or semi-colon. You can set your Preferences in Microsoft Word to do this.

Indicating paragraphs: Do not use indents or tabs. Use a double return (not a tab or indent) to indicate a new paragraph.

With a long quote (more than 40 words), use the “format paragraph” menu command and indent 0.5 inches.

Do not include headers or footers.



AUTHOR IDENTIFYING STATEMENT. This statement may include institutional affiliations, degrees, professions, special interests, publications, etc.

Please limit it to 100 words. It should end with Correspondence: followed by your postal mailing address for professional communications. (This address will be published.)

ABSTRACT. 100 words or less is preferred. (to be included with all articles, reviews, and interviews)

KEY WORDS. These are used by indexing services, so please include both names and topics, putting them in alphabetical order.


Formatting quotations in your text: Quotes should be exactly as they appear in the original, including punctuation (Chicago 11.8). If words or phrases are omitted from within the quote, this should be indicated by an ellipsis: […] (Chicago 11.51), which can be found in Microsoft Word menu Insert>Symbols.

Permissions. Under the convention of “fair dealing for the purposes of criticism and review” by the Society of Authors, permission is not required for extracts of less than 400 words, which are not used simply to “embellish the text.”

Multiple extracts from the same work may total up to 800 words, with each extract no longer than 300 words.

For poetry, the permitted length is 40 lines, or one quarter of the poem, whichever is less.

If the author is a wellknown literary figure, it is advisable to obtain permission.

Please check the accuracy of quotes very carefully. This is solely the author's responsibility.

Quotes 40 words or less in length should be enclosed within “double quotation” marks (American usage, Chicago 11.33). However, a quote within a quote is enclosed with ‘single quotation’ marks, even though there are “double quotation” marks in the original.

Quotes over 40 words in length should be separated from the text and indented 0.5 inch from the left margin (Chicago 11.11–12). Do not use the space bar or tab; use the paragraph format function. In Word, this can be found in the format>paragraph format. A return should separate the quote from the text above and below it. But only use a double return below the quote if you wish to begin a new paragraph


If you would like to include images, be sure to indicate within the text where the image should be placed, numbering the images with your last name.# of image in order.

With your submission, you may submit low resolution images in jpg or pdf form. Also include a figure caption. The permission line can be added by you if your article is accepted and you receive editorial approval and permission from the copyright holder to use it.

Please be aware that the printed version has most images printed in grayscale (black and white), not color. The online version can include most images in color. The final decision to use an image is an editorial one, and the editor will consult with you about this when your article is edited.

If images are included in your article, it will be your responsibility to obtain permission to use the images (see Permissions page) and to pay for any fees. You must also provide high quality (400 dpi or pixels per inch, or 150 pixels per centimeter). You should check with the Editor to find out what size images to send. You can make arrangements to send the images to the Editor on a disk or upload them on the journal url.

Indicating image placement in your text. Here is a prototype:

[Place smith1.tif as close to the paragraph above as possible.]

[caption] Apollo Meets Dionysus, Greek Amphora, 450 BCE (Louvre Paris, by permission. Photograph: ArtResource, New York)


PERMISSIONS, including any fees, are the author’s responsibility.

All sources should be acknowledged, even if permission is not required. If in doubt, seek permission.

The proper permission line should be included in your caption or at the end of a quote.

(See the Quotations and Images pages for additional formatting information.)

LeeAnn Pickrell will send you a Third Party Permission Form upon request. Complete or modify it as needed. You can mail it or simply attach it to an e-mail and send to the party from whom you request permission. Please provide LeeAnn Pickrell,  Managing Editor, with a copy and maintain one for your own records.

Your article cannot go to page proofs until all permissions are complete.

We recommend that you request permissions as soon as your article is (provisionally) accepted.

Additional information on seeking permissions and the kind of permission required is available at: tandfonline.com/ujun

IMAGE PERMISSIONS. Permission must be obtained for all images that are copyrighted or the property of a collection or library. It is the responsibility of the author to pay any permission fees.

You may also be required to pay a fee for the use of a slide or quality photograph you obtain from a

museum, library, or other source.

If your article is accepted after all necessary revisions and completions, the Routledge, Taylor and Francis Group Author’s Agreement will be sent to you. Final acceptance of your article requires receipt the signed Agreement and all necessary 3rd party permissions.

Be sure to keep copies for your own records.

C I T A T I O N S and B I B L I O G R A P H Y

The easiest way to see how to prepare your Bibliography is to refer to the most recent issue of  Jung Journal: Culture & Psyche and use it as as template.

Jung Journal: Culture & Psyche uses the Chicago T & R Style, which has undergone some recent revisions. References to Jung's Collected Works are an exception (see below).

T refers to the citation included in the Text.

R refers to the bibliographic or Reference entry.

CITATIONS. The accuracy of citations is the author's responsibility. Reference information must be provided within the text for all quotations and for material or ideas that are substantially the work, or based upon the work, of another author. Include page references for any quotes and for specific points that are not general to the entire work.

BOOK REVIEWS. If you are writing a review of a single book, with quotes from that book, you need not include the author and publication date for each citation, unless a citation from another author precedes it.


The Chicago Manual of Style presents two basic documentation systems, the humanities style (notes and bibliography) and the author date system.

From the Chicago Manual:

Current usage avoids the use of Ibid. and Op. cit. Simply repeat the citation: (Smith 2002).

Sources are briefly cited in the text, usually in parentheses, by author’s last name and date of publication. The short citations are amplified in the Bibliography, where full bibliographic information is provided.

Below are some common examples. Each example is given in author-date style (an in-text citation [T], followed by a bibliographic entry [R]). For numerous specific examples, see chapters 16 and 17 of The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition.

Online sources that are analogous to print sources (such as articles published in online journals, magazines, or newspapers) should be cited similarly to their print counterparts but with the addition of a URL. Some publishers or disciplines may also require an access date. For online or other electronic sources that do not have a direct print counterpart (such as an institutional Web site or a Weblog), give as much information as you can in addition to the URL.

Citing Jung’s Collected Works

Citation format: (Jung 1942/1968, CW 13, ¶147)

(the date of original publication/date of edition being used, CW volume number, ¶ number)

If more than one paragraph in sequence is cited, it should be indicated by a double ¶¶ symbol, as in: (Jung 1942/1968, CW 13, ¶¶147-148), but if two separate paragraphs are relevant:

(Jung 1942/1968, CW 13, ¶1147, ¶1149)

Hint: Mac keyboard shortcut for ¶ is Option+7


When an article references Jung’s Collected Works, a standard note regarding the bibliographic information of the English and American editions is included by the copy editor at the beginning of the bibliography.

You will still need to include some basic information within the bibliography:

Jung, C.G. original date of publication/date of the edition that is being cited. “Title of the essay.” Title of the volume. CW #.

Example: Jung, C.G. 1942/1968. Paracelsus as a spiritual phenomenon. Alchemical studies. CW 13.

If one essay fills the entire volume, only the volume name is required; for example, Psychological types.

Please do not quote Jung from reprinted topic collections but from the Collected Works, unless the work is a newer translation or not in the Collected Works, such as The Visions Seminars, The Red Book, and The Psychology of Kundalini Yoga.

Author’s Biography

The author’s biography is a brief statement of the author’s significant professional life and affiliations.  The format for this should follow the format of the fictitious example  as shown below:

Jane Doe, Ph.D. is a Jungian analyst in private practice in San Francisco.  Dr. Doe is a member of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco and a Board Member of the Children’s Welfare Society.  She has written two books, The Child’s Play and Transference Phenomena, and she has published many articles in the field of psychoanalytic work with children.  Correspondence: 200 Tenth Street, Town, State, zip code, email: janedoe@internet.com
