The IJP was founded in 1996. 
It is published by the European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP). 
We currently print about 500 copies per issue, with three issues a year, in March, July and November.

Back issues (printed copies) and PDF files of the whole issue, of issues from 2005, plus PDF files of all the different individual articles (from 2005), are available as automatic downloads (see Catalogue) using PayPal.


We are in the process of applying to various indexing organisations - like PubMed Central (PMC), Scopus, and the Thompson-Reuters Social Science Citation Index - for proper professional recognition, so as to obtain an impact factor, based on the number of citations: so, watch this space!

Acceptance Rate: We have also recently been asked to publish our acceptance rate. Over the last 3 years (since Vol. 17, No. 1, Mar-2013), we have published 9 issues, containing 63 double-blind, peer-reviewed articles: 7 articles have also been rejected (1 outright and 6 after peer-review). The "acceptance rate" is therefore - on average - 90%.
