Call for Papers and Submission Guidelines

Theory, Research & Applications Section

The Newsletter Action Group invites authors to submit articles on the Theory of Living Human Systems, its applications, or research for publication. We are interested in your thoughts on any aspect of theory as it emerges, changes and grows. What do you find interesting? What moves you?

For the Application Section we are interested in how you have been applying the theory in your work. How is it going? What do you find especially helpful and with what population? What didn’t work or didn’t live up to your expectations? How would you do it differently next time?

In the area of Research we are looking for summaries of research that test hypotheses generated from the Theory of Living Human Systems or that evaluate the applicability of SCT methods in practice. What makes it interesting; why is it important; how does it add to the body of knowledge; and what next steps are suggested? Summaries of research should include hypotheses, a brief description of design, a statement of outcome and some discussion of findings. Provision of a reference to the full research study is recommended.
