Author's Notes

We are pleased that you have decided to publish an article in the “International Journal of Adventure Therapy”.

Article submission (Germany)


Thank you very much for this, it makes our editorial work easier.

International editorial office

Articles and contributions can be submitted in the respective languages of the represented countries. In the various countries, there are usually two (selected) editors / proofreaders appointed by the editorial team, who act as contact persons in your native language. They will proofread your contribution and act as your communication partners. They are called “country editors” in the following.

  • The country editors decide on the acceptance of a submitted contribution for review.
  • Submissions accepted by the country editors will then be proofread and selected in the national languages.
  • Two editors read the submitted articles independently of each other.
  • The editors decide on the acceptance of the articles and then inform the authors about the result of this process: rejection or acceptance or acceptance with reservations.
  • In the case of “acceptance with reservations”, the authors are asked to revise their article along the instructions (several times, if necessary). Upon resubmission, authors provide a brief explanation of the changes made. The editors then review the contribution again.
  • Once the editors propose an article for publication, the editors make a final decision on its acceptance.
  • The editors edit the article, if necessary with the involvement of the authors, so that it is finally published in a timely manner.

All activities of the editors and the editorial team are carried out on a voluntary basis. For this reason, please understand that there may be delays in the process if this group of people has to prioritize other commitments. Improvements in this regard are being implemented on an ongoing basis.
