How to submit an article to Frontiers Frontiers is here! How did you like it? Steve Frankel and I, Co-Editors of Frontiers in the Psychotherapy of Trauma and Dissociation, welcome your comments, judgments and suggestions. You may send them to or Invitation to submit articles We are eager to host articles from ISSTD members. Frontiers also welcomes articles from colleagues outside our Society, but we count on our members for a stream of thoughtful reports on your little clinical triumphs, your insights and improvisations. The Mission Statement for Frontiers says: “Clinicians’ observations from testing the rationale for their interventions, for one patient and one treatment session at a time, are indeed the seed for ideas to update existing theories and for hypotheses to test experimentally.” You can read the rest of that statement, as well as Instructions to Authors and Guidelines for Reviewers by going to ISSTD Members’ Corner at the ISSTD site. You can reach our automated submissions platform with this direct link: or from info pages linked to the home page of the ISSTD Website: After submission, your article will be sent out to reviewers for their comments to you and recommendations to the Editors. Invitation for commentaries We hope to make Frontiers the forum for discussion of published articles. To that end, we welcome commentaries. After their review, we will try to publish related commentaries, about the same article, together, hopefully with responses from that article’s authors. It is now timely to send us commentaries on the inaugural issue, the two Editorials and articles by Kluft, Silberg & Schwartz Lapin and Nijenhuis.
