Accepting Article Submissions

The Journal for Invitational Theory and Practice (JITP) (ISSN-1060-6041) publishes once a year and promotes the tenets of invitational theory and practice, self-concept theory, and perceptual psychology. First published in 1992, it is currently indexed in the ERIC and EBSCO databases. The JITP seeks to publish articles under two priorities. First, manuscripts are encouraged that examine and expand the theory of invitational learning and development, investigate the efficacy of invitational practices, and relate these beliefs and findings to other theories of human development and behavior. Second, manuscripts are considered without directly relating their discussion/findings to ITP if their focus is on theories which are compatible with ITP. The JITP accepts articles for submission year round; however the submission deadline for each issue is July 1 of each year.
