Dear Colleagues,

With four successful years (2019 to 2022) of publishing more than 135 articles which the majority of the authors are Indonesian scholars, receiving more than 250 citations from various national journals, and being viewed more than 44.000 times in 2022, BOCP is proud to announce its expansion starting with Volume 5. We are now reaching out to authors from abroad, especially developing countries, to showcase the valuable counseling and psychotherapy services offered in these regions. Despite our initial focus on national researchers and local citations, we acknowledge the need to broaden our scope to reach a wider audience. We understand that our previous weaknesses may hinder our journal in international contributions and citations. However, our efforts in 2023 to expand and invite more international authors demonstrate our commitment to elevating the quality and recognition of our journal globally.
