EJMH Special Call for Articles on Family Therapy and Family Studies

The European Journal of Mental Health invites you to submit your work to its Family Therapy and Family Studies in Supporting Mental Health thematic compilation. The compilation will include selected peer-reviewed original research articles as well as reviews, published free and open-access, by early 2025.

The submission deadline is July 31, 2024.

The definition of mental health as bio-psycho-social-spiritual well-being assumes that we all live in networks of interconnected relationships. Families in a broad sense are in the center of these interactions. Systemic approaches in theory, research, and interventions are essential in today’s work for mental health. Therefore, we invite manuscripts on:

Ø current trends shaping contemporary family life

Ø research on families’ functioning and structure globally

Ø new concepts and innovative methods in couple and family therapy

Ø cross-cultural approaches in systemic theory and family studies

Ø the standing of couple and family therapy in Europe and beyond

Ø systemic interventions promoting mental health and wellbeing in families

Ø personal well-being in a family


Manuscript submission information

Manuscripts should be submitted via email: ejmh-editor@semmelweis.hu, until the deadline below.

We are inviting new quantitative and qualitative studies, as well as comprehensive (narrative, scoping, and systematic) literature reviews and meta-analyses inspired by theoretical or practical dilemmas. EJMH also welcomes perspective articles on fundamental concepts or prevalent ideas in family studies and/or in systemic theory and practice.

For planned papers, a title and short abstract (max. 2000 characters including spaces) can be sent to the Editorial Office until May 31, 2024.

The final submission deadline is July 31, 2024.

All manuscripts that pass pre-screening are thoroughly refereed through a double-blind peer-review process.

There is no Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open-access journal.

Please visit the Author Guidelines page before submitting a manuscript.

Sincerely yours,
