Research on self and identity over the last decade has seen an exponential increase in empirical studies on self-compassion. This special issue of Self and Identity will be focused on the relationship of self-compassion to well-being, broadly defined, with particular interest in experimental methodologies. We are encouraging submissions that address populations at different ages and developmental stages, as well as in diverse contexts. Brief reports are also welcome.
Prospective authors are asked to submit a 1 page abstract that includes information about the purpose of the study, sample, methods, and preliminary results. Abstracts should be submitted to both Guest Editors - Kristin Neff (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Karen Bluth (email@example.com) - by May 1, 2017. Full manuscripts of submissions that we invite to move forward will be due September 1, 2017. We are also asking that authors who are invited to submit full manuscripts also review two other manuscripts for this special issue.
