English information about Gedragstherapie
Aims & Scope
Gedragstherapie: Tijdschrift voor gedragstherapie en cognitieve therapie (0167-7454, published since 1968) aims to publish scientific research (including psychometric research), theoretical articles, literature reviews, case studies and book reviews in the field of cognitive behavioral therapy. Readers are mainly clinical cognitive behavioral therapists.
Gedragstherapie has the following categories:
- Article (experimental or clinical research, case descriptions, literature review). For case descriptions to be eligible for publication, they must concern special problem behaviors, treatment methods and/or results.
- Kort instrumenteel (Short Instrumental). Contributions for the Kort instrumenteel section must meet the following conditions:
- the described instrument must be useful for cognitive behavioral therapy;
- questionnaires, interview schedules, behavioral measures, tasks and measuring equipment are eligible for discussion;
- the contribution discusses measurement intention, implementation, possible availability, scoring and use;
- the concise bibliography lists source publication(s) and the (most important) Dutch and/or Flemish research;
- the conclusion summarizes the usefulness of the described instrument.
- Forum. Contributions include a critical, stimulating discussion of a current theme that is interesting for the readership of practicing cognitive behavioral therapists.
- Boekbespreking (Book review). In a book review, the target group, objective and content are briefly discussed, and the majority (two-thirds of the discussion) of the discussion should be devoted to a critical reflection on the book, whereby the content is compared to recent scientific research, literature, professional literature and developments in practice.
Peer review process
Gedragstherapie is a peer-reviewed journal. This means that all original contributions are assessed by peer reviewers, except for the book reviews (which are assessed by the editors), and that publication of a submitted contribution is not guaranteed in advance. When assessing a manuscript, the editors assume that the manuscript has not been or will not be submitted to another Dutch journal at the same time and has not already been published or will not be published in another Dutch journal. The editors only accept Dutch contributions with an English abstract.
