Ágora: Estudos em Teoria Psicanalítica

Publisher: the Contra Capa

When the Psychoanalytic Theory Program at UFRJ developed the project to
launch a Journal connected to it, its objective was to respond to a demand
from its scientific community, which had only limited sources to its
specific subjects, in terms of publications as well as reading material. The
Ágora - studies in psychoanalytic theory Journal started to take a unique
place in the divulging of knowledge, taking its place beyond the
institutional confrontations and staying away from any personal
specificities from the majoring area of psychoanalytic societies. Its
proposal was pioneer in the area, building itself as a discussion forum for
research about the themes and most relevant problems at the contemporary
Psychoanalysis, thus trying to place the reader in contact with the latest
productions in this area.

Besides that, it made possible the effective psychoanalytic intervention in
many fields, opening doors to other Psychology sub areas and other alike
areas such as Sociology, Anthropology, Epistemology, Ethics and Linguistic.
It offered an open space to a pluralist debate, respecting the diversities
in tendencies that integrate the different fields of knowledge that the
Journal covers.

Ágora - studies in psychoanalytic theory is considered, in the academic
circle as well as in the national and international psychoanalytic
community, an Excellency in Journal. This can be observed by looking at the
growing number of international researchers that look into publishing their
articles and/or conferences in our Journal's issues. The demand has been
growing each year, and we try to keep it up with it taking in consideration
the necessity of evaluation criteria.

The Journal publishes first hand manuscripts and it offers a wide division
in articles types: case reports, conferences, original article translations
(a rare translation of previously published works from outside the country
is justified when the theme is relevant in the present time),
interdisciplinary studies, interviews, and abstracts.

Interviews as well as abstracts are given priority since they represent
present debates. Issues in the field of psychoanalysis and alike fields of
Social and Human Sciences are considered as publication interest.
