Papers submitted to this journal should focus on the relationship between the Enneagram and the MBTI (and/or other Jungian-based personality systems). Papers on non-Jungian personality systems will be accepted on occasion, insofar as they address issues that promise to shed light on the relationship between the Enneagram and the MBTI.
The paper that you submit may:
- Propose a theory regarding the relationship between the two personality systems;
- Critique existing theories;
- Provide new information, derived from an empirical study that you have conducted or are conducting, which impacts on Enneagram/MBTI theory.
- Offer new insights into subjects that directly impact on Enneagram/MBTI theory (e.g., biases in testing processes);
- Offer comments or suggestions about methodologies for assessing Enneagram/MBTI theories; or,
- discuss personal or professional experiences with the MBTI or Enneagram,
from which conclusions about the relationship between the two systems might be drawn;
The paper you submit should be:
- clearly written;
- submitted via email, with the text in ASCII format, and any illustrations appropriately formatted in 'gif' files;
- no longer than ten type-written pages;
It must also include:
an abstract or introduction;
appropriate references and/or footnotes;
a title and date (mm/dd/yy);
a brief bio/description of each author
The Review Process
Once submitted, your paper will be reviewed by a panel of individuals who will make recommendations regarding the appropriateness of the paper for inclusion here. Although we seek to be inclusive and not exclusive, we reserve the right to decide what is published here, and to reject submissions without explanation.
Please be aware that your article may be placed in a queue, where it will await publication in a future issue. Previously published material will be considered for publication, but new works will be given priority.
Only articles that are deemed appropriate in subject matter will be considered for publication. Articles will be evaluated on the basis of originality and depth of thought/experience, thoroughness of the author's understanding/appreciation of previous work in the field that comprises Enneagram/MBTI theory and studies, clarity of expression, and willingness to address issues raised by other authors participating in the discussion of the chosen topic. Healthy debate will be encouraged, but so will civility, a willingness to share information and ideas, and a collaborative attitude.
We strive to work closely with others to present a forum that is open, fair to all, and driven by an appreciation of democratic process (ie, peer review, open discussion, group process, equal opportunity). Above all else we seek to create a climate that invites new ideas, from whatever quarter they may originate, and cultivates an appreciation of 'collaborative actualization'.
Final decisions regarding the mechanics of producing the journal, including but not limited to:
- which issue an article is to be included in;
- layout and graphic design;
- appropriateness of advertising;
- letters to the editor;
- length of the publication, and frequency
of appearance of the issues; and
- overall journal policy
will, for the time being at least, remain at the discretion of the editors.
As this journal will be offered free of cost to the reader, authors will be asked to cover the cost of processing articles, web space, and so forth. Each author will be charged a processing fee that is approximately equivalent to $1/kilobyte when their article is accepted for publication. Articles will not be published until that fee is received.
Articles may be submitted for publication by using a form that you can review by clicking HERE . Upon final approval of an article, a check will be required from the author before publication.
