The International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS) publishes StressPoints, an award-winning electronic newsletter to support the professional development needs of its membership. Four issues are published annually. The purpose of StressPoints is to provide an outlet for rapidly sharing news and recent advances in global trauma research and practice.
Contributing Editors serve two-year terms and are assigned to specific columns or general topic areas. Contributing Editors are responsible for writing and/or soliciting from relevant authors (ISTSS members) at least two articles per year. Article content should reflect the multidisciplinary and diverse interests and needs of the membership of ISTSS. Articles are typically 500-800 words in length. Contributing Editors review each article for content and formatting and consult with the Editor, as necessary. Contributing Editors ensure that issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion relevant to the topic of the article are infused into each contribution, as relevant. All submitted articles are subject to final editorial review. Please review recent issues for examples of format and content.
We at ISTSS are committed to reflecting the global and diverse nature of the Society in our editorial board as well as the content and authorship of articles. Contributing Editors network with leading researchers and practitioners in the field of traumatic stress around the globe and contribute meaningful service to ISTSS.
