The journal will publish a range of article types in psychiatry, including Original Research, Reviews, Personal Views, Comments, and News articles. Topics will include psychopharmacology, psychotherapy and psychosocial approaches to all psychiatric disorders, across the life course. The journal will cover innovative treatments and the biological research underpinning such developments, novel methods of service delivery, and new ways of thinking about mental illness promoted by social psychiatry. The journal will also advocate strongly for the rights of people with mental health disorders, and welcome the voices of service users.
The journal will offer the same fast track experience offered by its sister journals for all authors of research papers that are selected for peer review, where articles can be published online within 8 weeks of submission.
