American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis


Many ASCH members have become aware of the delays we are experiencing regarding issues of the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis.

We, the President, the CEO, and I have been in continual contact with our publisher Tailor and Francis about this matter and the corrective measures that will solve the problems. Tailor and Francis report that they have experienced delays in all of their journal publications due to the impact of Covid-19. 

We understand that Vol. 64, No. 1 (the July issue) is to be mailed early in November, and Vol. 64, No. 2 (the October issue) will soon follow, also in November.

Tailor and Francis have promised that there will be no further delays in production in 2022.

We are all very sorry for the inconvenience their delays have caused to readers, authors, Special Editors, and potential future authors and will continue to do everything we can to resolve this regrettable situation.

New Methods for Submission, Review, and Revision - Videos

As stated above, beginning with the July 2011 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis (AJCH), Taylor & Francis became AJCH's new publisher. They handle everything from subscriptions and distribution to compilation of reviews, editing, and revisions. This was a large gain for AJCH in terms of increased readership, subscriptions, professional viability, and more.  As part of the transition to Taylor & Francis, ASCH migrated our practices of submission, review, and editing to the Taylor & Francis software and online interface.  In these web demonstrations, Stephen Lankton, AJCH Editor, will demonstrate the interface and teach how to use it for submission, reviewing, and editing.

Please note the new editing standards from Taylor and Francis which update the American Psychological Association documentation style.

RePORT Expenditures and Results (RePORTER)

On 12/30/09, the NIH CRISP system, which has been a valuable source of information on NIH-funded research for many years, was taken off-line. It is replaced by the query tool. This new tool retains all of the features of CRISP while providing additional query fields, hit lists that can be sorted and downloaded to Excel, NIH funding for each project (“expenditures”), and the publications and patents that have acknowledged support from each project (“results”).
