The European Journal of Counselling Psychology (EJCoP) is pleased to accept submissions.

The EJCoP is a free peer-reviewed open-access journal. It publishes articles at the intersection of European and counselling psychology issues that substantially advances the understanding of professional issues, the training of counselling psychologists and the application and practice of counselling psychology across Europe.

EJCoP is integrative and comprehensive in its approach. It publishes high quality research from different epistemological, methodological, theoretical and cultural perspectives and from different regions, providing a forum of innovation and debate, and questioning and testing of assumptions. EJCoP aims to bridge academic and applied counselling psychology. It tends to transcend the methodological and meta-theoretical divisions. The Journal welcomes submissions from both quantitative and qualitative methods, including ethnographic, autobiographical, and single patient or organisational case studies.

In 2012, EJCoP joined in collaboration with PsychOpen, the free online European open-access publishing platform for Psychology. Following its inaugural publication with PsychOpen March 2013, EJCoP will publish two issues per year and is accepting submissions.

All papers should be submitted through the EJCoP online submission process and should conform to the requirements listed on the EJCoP website (

We look forward to your submissions and please feel free to disseminate this call to anyone who you think might be interested.
