Gruppi, Groups is the Journal of COIRAG (Confederation of Italian Organisations for Analytical Research on Groups).
Since 1999 it has been a research tool on the group as an indi-vidual, relational and institutional psychic space, in its various social articulations. 'Gruppi' is aimed at clinicians, researchers and trainers, doctors or psychologists, psychiatrists, psychotherapists and social workers. Although located in the area of Psychodynamic Orientation Journals, Gruppi is in-spired by the principle of free and unbiased scientific inquiry and group ethics based on respect for otherness and dialogue, with a view to constructive encounter and confrontation. Each issue, in ad-dition to several articles centred on the theme of the issue, also contains original works on any topic relevant to group research, contributions on the life of the COIRAG School, connections, reviews, round tables and interviews. The editorial activities are group-based and open to the collaboration of COIRAG Members and the School's Students. The American Psychological Association selects Gruppi for its PsycINFO Journal Coverage List. This bibliographic database collects the most pres-tigious journals and publications in the world, in order to analyse articles and quotations.

The Journal uses a double-blind peer review process. Reviewers are chosen for their expertise. The article will be sent anonymously to reviewers to avoid possible influences due to the name of the author. The editors may decide not to submit the article to any referee in the case it is judged as not relevant, not rigorous or not meeting appropriate scientific standards. Reviewers' evaluations will be sent to the author also in case of negative response.
