Publishing guidelines for submission to the The Jung Page
We welcome articles, book reviews, reflections, interviews, film commentaries, dissertation abstracts and excerpts, and much more. We are looking for quality writing that is original, stimulating, and ready for publication. We invite submissions from Jungian analysts and candidates and also from scholars and psychoanalysts and psychotherapists of all persuasions.
With previously published work, you can facilitate publication at the CGJungPage by obtaining the permission to republish from your publisher unless the copyright is in your name. Please include previous publication details when you send your work.
You retain the copyright for any work you have published at the CGJungPage. However, when you submit your work, please include a sentence in an e-mail granting us permission to publish your writing.
Example: I, ____________________, grant permission to The Jung Center of Houston to publish the attached article, review, or other writing along with any enclosed artwork at the CG Jung Page (URL: http://www.cgjungpage.org).
The titles of the documents submitted are: 1. _________________, 2. ______________ ....
If you would like your e-mail address or mailing address included with the document(s) to be published, please indicate this.
Address regular mail to:
The Jung Center, attn. Sean Fitzpatrick

Houston, TX 77006
We welcome Jungian and psychoanalytic articles as well as psychological excursions into other areas--politics, film, literature, book reviews, technology, and environmental issues, for example.
Please submit only material that is polished and ready for publication and that possesses no copyright restrictions. Authors will retain the copyright for their work and may withdraw their work from online publication at any time.
We encourage you to attach a copyright notice to the documents you submit. The copyright notice begins with the first word, "Copyright" or the symbol for copyright (the letter "c" inside a circle). Next follows the year in which the work was first published or in which the draft was completed if the document is unpublished. The third element in the copyright notice is the name of the copyright holder. The copyright notice is not required by law but it is good practice to include it.
For your information, the full U.S. Copyright Act and related information can be accessed at these and other addresses:
You can quote a work without permission if your use fits the "fair use" guidelines. U.S. Copyright Law allows reproduction, distribution, and adaptation of copyrighted material if the use is "for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research."
See the information on "Copyright and Fair Use" provided by Stanford University: http://fairuse.stanford.edu
If you are submitting work from a previously published book, publishing contracts vary in regard to copyright--there is no industry-wide standard. Your contract should normally contain a "copyright clause" stating who will hold the copyright of the work. In addition, there should be a related clause for the "grant of rights" which lists the rights in the work that you are granting to the publisher (hardcover, paperback, foreign language, electronic and audio rights, etc.).
The copyright for a photograph belongs to the photographer--even when commissioned and/or purchased; reproduction of a photograph requires the photographer's permission. The same terms regarding the public domain of literary works apply for photographs.

We look forward to hearing from you!
