After a decade of online publication across ten volumes, the IJDS is merging with the JCP in 2018 and future submissions should be directed to the JCP.

A new Associate Editor of the IJDS has been appointed. She is Prof. Eugenie Georgaca who serves as a Senior Lecturer in the Psychology Department at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. A clinical psychologist, Dr. Georgaca has a broad set of interests in the field of mental health with a focus upon serious mental disorders, the role of social and cultural factors in their development and treatment, and the use of dialogical approaches in psychotherapy. She is replacing Dr. Giancarlo Dimaggio who has ably served the journal from its foundation and contributed so effectively to advancing our understanding of psychotherapeutic processes from the vantage of dialogical self theory.

[•] Note that this journal follows an unusual but innovative policy for authors to become members of ISDS:

Acceptance and publication of a paper or commentary in the journal automatically leads to membership of the ISDS. This policy has the advantage that membership is directly dependent on the scientific and professional interest and qualities of the person who submits a manuscript. Another advantage is that there is no obligation to pay any dues. In this way the journal maintains an open character with a simultaneous guarantee of the quality of the papers by peer-reviewed procedures.
