News Update - JSFBT  ---> JSFP

March 2020

The journal continues to evolve! We are happy to announce that the Journal of Solution Focused Brief Therapy will now be known as the Journal of Solution Focused Practices. Same journal, same editor & team, but highlighting that we are not just about 'therapy'. 

The last edition of the JSFBT (vol3 no1) is still available for purchase. This is a special fund-raising edition and is for sale via this website for AUD$37 (that's about: USD$25, Euro 22.5, UK Pounds 20.5). The journal will be available as an instant download when you pay. Have a look here at the table of contents. While you are purchasing the single edition, your payment effectively goes towards the next 2 editions as well.

We are happy to say that in 2020 we will be shifting to an open access platform. This means that from 2020 the journal will be available for FREE for EVERYONE. You will not have to pay for a subscription, and you will not have to be a member of the AASFBT. The journal will be available for a free and instant download. We are about to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Nevada Las Vegas, and we will be ready to publish the next edition in July 2020.

HOWEVER, this does not mean that the journal costs nothing to produce. We expect that the cost to produce 2 editions per year will be between US$10000 and US$15000 per year. We will be relying on support from the international SF community. We will be looking to collect money in the following ways:

  • Through our 2019 special fund-raising edition
  • Through corporate, group and individual donations
  • Through international SF organisations either making a regular payment (as a sponsor) or a one-off payment (as a donor).

You can view a list of partners, sponsors, and donors here.

You can also purchase previous copies of the JSFBT, either individual copies or as a set of 4. If you go to this page you will see the various options including postage for Australia and New Zealand, and for the rest of the world.

We will shortly be announcing a new international collaboration who will join the AASFBT in publishing the journal, and details on the open-access publishing arrangement for 2020.

We invite you to link up with us on Facebook and Twitter.
