TA Journals

Transactional Analysis Journal (TAJ)

www.itaa-net.org Available as part of membership to the ITAA (International Transactional Analysis Association).

The Transactional Analysis Journal is the official professional journal of the International Transactional Analysis Association. Established in 1970, the TAJ is published quarterly to advance the theory, principles, and practice of transactional analysis. It also offers scholarly articles on related topics, including research into the nature of human change; insightful book reviews; and a yearly author and subject index (October issue). 

Sage is now the publishing partner for the TAJ.

www.ijtar.org Open journal, freely available online. 

IJTAR publishes high-quality empirical research using any scientific paradigm across the full range of TA applications. It also promotes research comparing TA and other models and non-TA research that has significant implications for TA theory or practice.

A wide variety of research is welcomed, including but not limited to:

  • Pure as well as applied research. Research that tests existing theoretical models within TA and research that tests the effectiveness of specific interventions and programs are both of interest
  • Outcome- as well as process-oriented research. Randomised, control group research designs and real life process research are both seen as relevant
  • Quantitative and qualitative research methods are both encouraged.
