 !!!!NEW: SOTRAP!!!!

Dear friends and colleagues,

we are very happy and proud to announce the publication of the first issue of our new open science journal „Sexual Offending: Theory, Research, and Prevention (SOTRAP)”, the successor of our former e-journal „Sexual Offender Treatment” (SOT). SOTRAP is part of the PsychOpen GOLD program of the Leibniz Institute for Psychology Information (ZPID; for more information see https://leibniz-psychology.org/en/), which is the leading open science institution for psychology and related disciplines in Germany. All articles can be downloaded completely free (no fees for authors or readers).

Here is the link to the new journal website: https://sotrap.psychopen.eu/index.php/sotrap/index

Here the link to the first issue: https://sotrap.psychopen.eu/index.php/sotrap/issue/view/125

And here the editorial of the first issue, where we explain SOTRAP in more detail: https://sotrap.psychopen.eu/index.php/sotrap/article/view/3657/3657.pdf

We hope that we will receive a lot of high-quality submissions to SOTRAP from you!

Best regards,

Martin Rettenberger





Important: We are happy to announce that the conference will take place under any circumstances. It will most likely and hopefully consist of a virtual and an on-site part. However, up to now it is not clear whether the on-site part can actually be held or whether it will be a fully virtual conference.

The upcoming conference will also offer a whole part of sessions in German held by experts from Austria and Germany. 

Instead of four days, the conference will be scheduled for three days this year. 

We will relaunche the registration site on January 24th, 2021. You may then register for the conference.

For those who have already registered and paid for the 2020 conference, we will contact you soon.
