Deadline for letter of intent and abstract:  February 15, 2011

We invite the submission of abstracts for a special issue of the International Journal of Sexual Health to focus on the sexual health and functioning of military veterans from any country. The issue will feature original research. Topics may include the effect of military experiences on the general sexual health of veterans across the lifespan; the prevalence of sexual dysfunctions among veterans and across branches of service; treating sexual dysfunctions and comorbid psychiatric symptoms in veterans; the relationship between sexual health and resilience; the sexual health and functioning of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender active duty personnel and veterans; and the sexual health of women veterans who have been exposed to combat; and sexuality and chronic illness.

 Interested persons should email a letter of intent with an abstract (limited to 300 words or less) of the proposed article to the Guest Editor, Michael R. Kauth, PhD (Michael.kauth@va.gov) with the subject line “IJSH Paper Abstract” by February 15, 2011. 

Full papers are due by July 1, 2011. It is anticipated that this special issue will be published in Fall 2011 or Winter 2012.
