CALL FOR INTERNATIONAL MANUSCRIPTS
The Associate Editors for the International Section of the Journal of Counseling & Development (JCD) are seeking manuscripts which describe the development of counseling in other countries.
We are particularly interested in manuscripts from various countries which contain the following sections: (1) a review/history of the development of counseling in a particular country; (2) current status; (3) future trends for the counseling profession in the country; and (4) comparisons which can be drawn between counseling in the United States and the country that is being described. It is recommended that all international manuscripts have at least one co-author who is a native of the particular country written about. This might be a counselor, counselor educator, or other mental health professional.
Manuscripts should be approximately 2,500 -3,500 words in length (about 12-15 type written, double spaced pages, including references).
In order to avoid duplication, persons interested in making a contribution should clear the article with Norm Amundson < firstname.lastname@example.org> and Tom Hohenshil <email@example.com> prior to beginning work - send an email to both indicating your interest. You will then be provided with a structured format for preparing your manuscript.

CALL FOR PAPERS: THE JOURNAL OF PRIMARY PREVENTION
Special Issue: Prevention and Social Justice
Maureen Kenny and Sally Hage, Guest Editors
The late George Albee recognized and promoted the importance of primary prevention as a tool for promoting social justice. Amidst ongoing oppressive realities in U.S. society and across the globe, psychologists and other helping professionals are voicing a renewed commitment to social justice activity. Despite growing interest in social justice and prevention, relatively little attention has focused explicitly on social justice prevention. As Albee was also well aware, all prevention activity does not advance social justice.
In response to these gaps, The Journal of Primary Prevention is preparing a special issue on Prevention and Social Justice. We are interested in soliciting articles that will serve to further prevention theory, research, and practice for social justice and contribute to the refinement of a model of social justice prevention. Following from Albee’s incidence formula, which conceptualized mental health as derived from environmental and personal factors, we understand social justice prevention as entailing intervention at both the personal and environmental levels.
Authors are encouraged to submit papers on any aspect of the social justice and prevention, including -- but not limited to -- the development, implementation, and evaluation of prevention programs to reduce oppression related to:
• Religious/Spiritual difference
• Nationalism or other global issues
JPP encourages various types of papers: original research, practice-oriented reports from the field, and literature reviews. Prospective authors should contact the Guest Editors with questions. Manuscripts should be submitted using the journal’s online Editorial Manager system http://www.editorialmanager.com/jopp/ and indicating an interest in being considered for the Social Justice special issue.
Manuscripts should be double-spaced, approximately 15-35 pages in length, have an abstract of no more than 100 words, and include at least five key terms for information by retrieval purposes. References and format should follow APA (5th ed.) style. The deadline for submission is October 1, 2007.
The Journal for Social Action in Counseling and Psychology (JSACP) is currently accepting manuscripts in English and Spanish that promote reflection on community change and system transformation in which counselors and psychologists play a role. Appropriate manuscripts may include social action research, theory, as well as examples of practice. JSACP is an official publication of Psychologists for Social Responsibility (PsySR) and Counselors for Social Justice (CSJ) and is published with the support of the Doctoral Program in Community Research and Action at Vanderbilt University. This electronic journal upholds highest academic and professional standards and will be published twice a year electronically (pdf) with articles in either English or Spanish, with an extended abstract in the other language. The deadline for the first issue is June 1, 2006. Manuscripts will be reviewed through a masked, peer review process.
