Re: [xmca] Lewin, LSV, ARL (PsyAnima, Dubna Journal of Psychology: Call for papers)

Thanks, Mike! I also think that this is a really good journal issue, and, furthermore, consider it as a new Psychologische Forschung of our time.

A link definitely would not hurt; here it is, again: http://www.psyanima.ru/journal/2011/4/index.php

Anyway, just remember the name -- PsyAnima, Dubna Journal of Psychology: a relatively new journal, where utterly experimental and 
absolutely groundbreaking materials will keep coming out!

By the way, to whom it may concern: 

Consider this as a call for papers on a wide range of topics on unknown Vygotsky (history, theory, 

textology, methodology), transnational science, and integrative, holistic Cultural-Historical Gestalt-Psychology.

NB: Multilingual publications are supported and most enthusiastically encouraged!

The set of articles that you, David, Bella...... have been putting together is really impressive, Anton. We should have that link
