I would invite anyone on this list to send articles to the J of Critical Psycholgy, Counselling and Psychotherapy. The journal makes a minimal profit that goes to PCCS Books - actually two good people living near Hereford. Subscriptions remain cheap which continually threatens the future of the journal. If all else fails I suppose I could just produce it from home - that's how it began, as Changes.
The profit motive is not high on the list of PCCS's reasons for publishing anything - they however don't have public service salaries to sub their work.
