Journal Policies and Author Guide - for further details please refer to the JSFP main website.

Who Can Submit?

Anyone may submit an original article to be considered for publication in Journal of Solution Focused Practices provided he or she owns the copyright to the work being submitted or is authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article. Authors are the initial owners of the copyrights to their works (an exception in the non-academic world to this might exist if the authors have, as a condition of employment, agreed to transfer copyright to their employer).

General Submission Rules

Submitted articles cannot have been previously published, nor be forthcoming in an archival journal or book (print or electronic) in English. Articles published in non-English languages may be submitted for review with JSFP provided copyright permission is obtained from the original copyright holder. Please note: "publication" in a working-paper series does not constitute prior publication. In addition, by submitting material to Journal of Solution Focused Practices, the author is stipulating that the material is not currently under review at another journal (electronic or print) and that he or she will not submit the material to another journal (electronic or print) until the completion of the editorial decision process at Journal of Solution Focused Practices. If you have concerns about the submission terms for Journal of Solution Focused Practices, please contact the editors.

Formatting Requirements

Journal of Solution Focused Practices has no general rules about the formatting of articles upon initial submission. There are, however, rules governing the formatting of the final submission. See Final Manuscript Preparation Guidelines for details. Although bepress can provide limited technical support, it is ultimately the responsibility of the author to produce an electronic version of the article as a Microsoft Word file. .

Open Access

Journal of Solution Focused Practices is an Open Access publication; all articles are freely available online immediately upon publication. With few exceptions, articles are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License, where readers may reuse the materials with proper citation to the original.

The Journal of Solution Focused Practices does not charge submission or any other form of author fees.

Publication Agreement

Copyright is retained by the author(s). Where an author is prevented from being the copyright holder (i.e., U.S. government employees), the copyright line and license statement in individual articles will be adjusted. Please contact the editors during or immediately after submission of your paper.
