Call for Entries - Student Paper Award

The NCSPP Board invites current and recently graduated students (pre-licensed) to submit original papers to be considered for the NCSPP Annual Student Paper Award. This award offers local graduate students, who have not published, the chance to publish their papers in the NCSPP journal, fort da, and present it at an NCSPP scientific meeting with invited discussants. Also, NCSPP will award the winning author $250. 
 
We invite papers that contain original thinking and creatively address topics from a psychoanalytic perspective. They may be theoretical or clinical and should make use of psychoanalytic concepts to further the author's argument. The integration of psychoanalytic theory with clinical material should extend beyond case reporting to include theoretical or technical hypotheses. We also welcome papers that contain interdisciplinary and culturally diverse perspectives. Papers will be judged on psychoanalytic content, writing ability and style, integration of theoretical concepts, and original thinking. Entrants may have access to previous award winning papers upon request.
 
The deadline for submitting papers is Friday, October 27, 2017. All papers received by this deadline will be read by the fort da Editorial Committee Members. Papers should be double-spaced typed, not exceeding 25 pages. For the purpose of anonymous review, the paper itself should only include a title heading. In a separate document, the author should submit a cover letter, including the paper's title and the author's name, address, telephone number, email, and a brief bio. Authors should email the two documents to Loong Kwok: drloongkwok@gmail.com
 
The winning paper will be announced at the NCSPP Holiday Party in December.
