Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health (CAPMH)
Publisher: BioMed Central
Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health (CAPMH) is an open access,
online journal that provides an international platform for rapid and
comprehensive scientific communication on child and adolescent mental health
across different cultural backgrounds.
CAPMH is aimed at clinicians and researchers focused on improving the
knowledge base for the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of mental health
conditions in children and adolescents. This journal serves as a
scientifically rigorous and broadly open forum for both interdisciplinary
and cross-cultural exchange of research information, involving child and
adolescent psychiatrists, paediatricians, psychologists, neuroscientists,
and allied disciplines.
Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health considers the following
types of articles:
* Research: reports of data from original research.
* Reviews: comprehensive, authoritative, descriptions of any subject within
the scope of the journal. These articles are usually written by opinion
leaders that have been invited by the Editorial Board.
* Commentaries: short, focused and opinionated articles on any subject
within the scope of the journal. These articles are usually related to a
contemporary issue, such as recent research findings, and are often written
by opinion leaders.
* Case reports: reports of clinical cases that can be educational, describe
a diagnostic or therapeutic dilemma, suggest an association, or present an
important adverse reaction. All case report articles should be accompanied
by written and signed consent to publish the information from the patients
or their guardians.
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to Child and Adolescent
Psychiatry and Mental Health using the online submission system.
