La Revue Française de Psychanalyse

In English

An Introduction

Founded in 1926 under Sigmund Freud’s patronage, the Revue Française de Psychanalyse (RFP) is the most widely read French language psychoanalytic journal. Journal of the Paris Psychoanalytical Society, edited since 1948 by the Presses Universitaires de France (PUF), the RFP’s vocation is to promote reflection and debate on contemporary themes and issues in psychoanalysis. On the basis of a preliminary presentation of a theme, solicited and unsolicited contributions are welcome. The evaluation and selection of submitted articles constitute the central part of the volume. Spontaneous, unsolicited articles may be submitted to the Research and Encounters section, which are then evaluated and selected anonymously by an international committee of readers. Since 1992, the RFP is published quarterly, with a fifth issue specifically dedicated to the reports and work of the annual French language Psychoanalytic Congress.
