This journal provides rapid publication of complete research reports and reviews in the field of psychiatry.

The scope of the journal encompasses:

Biochemical, physiological, neuroanatomic, genetic, neurocognitive, and psychosocial determinants of psychiatric disorders.

Diagnostic assessments of psychiatric disorders.

Evaluations that pursue hypotheses about the cause or causes of psychiatric diseases.

Evaluations of pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic psychiatric treatments.

Basic neuroscience studies related to animal or neurochemical models for psychiatric disorders.

Methodological advances, such as instrumentation, clinical scales, and assays directly applicable to psychiatric research. These will be considered only if the scales and assays are included as an appendix to the manuscript in English. If they are too long, the way to obtain them without cost to the reader must be carefully stated in the methods section of the manuscript.

Reviews of timely topics in psychiatric research

Letters to the editor will be considered for case reports, comments about previously published papers, or secondary data analyses.



Papers with a primary focus on imaging techniques, can be submitted to Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging.
