Inclusivity and Equality

BCP is keen to contribute to increased inclusivity and progress towards equity within the field of CBT. It therefore welcomes submissions on topics that impact on practitioners and patients from minoritised identities (such as, but not limited to, sexuality, gender, ethnicity). We encourage all authors and reviewers to support the journal’s aims by considering inclusivity of people with minoritised identities within submissions where appropriate. This could for example be discussion of the ethnicities of research participants, reference to specific issues that may be relevant for people from minoritised groups within clinical guidance papers or acknowledgement of gaps in our knowledge.
