In this presentation we will introduce the Feldenkrais Research Journal as a vital intellectual resource for promoting Feldenkrais research. We will look at its place for the Feldenkrais professional community and at its place in the world. What special roles does it fulfill in developing ideas and promoting research? Research, writing about research, and the ideas that underpin our practice are vital to having a mature and successful field of practice. The Journal presents a great opportunity for both newer researchers and writers to develop along with experienced authors, get published and help shape our field.

We will explore: Where to find the journal, the kinds of articles we publish, the process of review and editing, how to propose an article to the journal, specific ways that practitioners can be involved and can benefit from being involved, and much more. As usual there will also be time for questions.
