Australian Psychologist seeks submissions from practitioners and researchers for a special issue on Coaching Psychology.

Topics for this special issue may include (but are not limited to) state of the art literature reviews, the role of psychologists and psychology in the coaching industry, outcome studies, case studies, professional practice issues, theoretical frameworks for coaching, and the application of Coaching Psychology in the workplace and in personal life, as well as research on the nature of coaching as an industry. Both quantitative and qualitative approaches are welcomed.

Papers should follow the published guidelines for Australian Psychologist and be submitted to the special issue editor Dr Anthony Grant at anthonyg@psych.usyd.edu.au or can be submitted online at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/aps

International Coaching Psychology Review: Call for Nominations for Editors

February 2006

The National Committee of the Interest Group for Coaching Psychology is calling for nominations for suitable individuals to act in editorial positions on a new Coaching publication – the International Coaching Psychology Review (ICPR).

About the ICPR
The ICPR is a peer reviewed academic and professional publication focusing on the theory, research and practice of Coaching Psychology. It aims to publish high quality research, theoretical and professional articles in coaching psychology. It is hoped that the ICPR will eventually become a top tier publication in coaching.

The ICPR is a joint venture of the British Psychological Society and the Australian Psychological Society through their respective interest groups in Coaching Psychology. A memorandum of understanding between the APS and BPS outlines the major features of the publication and of this joint project [see below].

There are two levels of editorial oversight of the ICPR - the Editorial Board and the International Editorial Advisory Panel. The Editorial Board is made up of a minimum of 6 members drawn from both the BPS Special Group in Coaching Psychology, and the APS Interest Group in Coaching Psychology.

It is envisaged that the ICPR will publish a minimum of 2 editions per year. The first edition of the ICPR is currently in press. The editorial team who have initiated this project and worked on the first edition are as follows. Prof Stephen Palmer is the Co-ordinating editor for the UK. The Australian Co-ordinating editor is Dr Michael Cavanagh. There are three co-editors in the UK (Prof. David Lane, Dr Alison Whybrow, and Dr Alex Linley.) There are currently two co-editors in Australia (Dr Anthony Grant, and Dr Travis Kemp). A range of international and nationally renowned scholars have been invited to be on the International Advisory Panel.

We are seeking nominations for Australian Co-editors and International Editorial Advisory Panel members.
