In Global Graphology we have aimed to achieve three main purposes. The first is
sharing of already existing professional knowledge around the world (systems,
techniques, ideas and empirical information), which is not widely known as yet,
due to language barriers. To this end we include "Survey Articles" which
consist of serious study materials and in-depth descriptions and evaluations of
graphological issues, with a broader scope than is possible in many of the
existing journals. The second aim is to promote comparative analyses. Each
journal will present a number of reports written by experts, either from
different schools, or on a particular method, all based on the same handwriting
sample. The third goal is to present the graphological community, as well as
Internet users in general, with a source of information about scientific
validation studies of Graphology from sources that are usually not readily
available to us. We believe that the synergic effect of the international
teamwork of IGC members from four continents can offer additional information
material, on top of that available to the members of any particular society
through its own journal and the professional literature in your own language.
The prices for individuals purchasing the hard copy of the journal are: 25 $CAD
for Canada, 30 $CAD for the United-States and 40 $CAD for all other countries.
