EJPT aims to engage scholars, clinicians and researchers in the crucial discourse about traumatic stress and its consequences. The Journal is in line with ESTSS’s mission to advance and disseminate scientific knowledge about traumatic stress within Europe and internationally, and is intended as a forum for the publication of peer-reviewed original research papers as well as to serve as a forum to disseminate evidence-based clinical practice. Being open access, European Journal of Psychotraumatology is also evidence of ESTSS’s stand on free accessibility of research publications to a wider scientific community via the web.


European Journal of Psychotraumatology seeks to attract contributions from academics and practitioners from diverse professional backgrounds, including, but not restricted to, those in mental health, medical and social sciences, and health and welfare services. Contributions from outside Europe are welcome.

The Journal welcomes Original basic and clinical research articles that consolidate and expand the theoretical and professional basis of the field of traumatic stress; Review articles including meta-analyses; Short communications presenting new ideas or early-stage promising research; Case studies examining a single individual or event in a real‑life context; Clinical practice papers sharing experience from the clinic; and Letters to the Editor debating articles already published in the Journal.
