About the Journal

Editorial Policy

Schizophrenia Bulletin seeks to review recent developments and empirically based hypotheses regarding the etiology and treatment of schizophrenia. We view the field as broad and deep, and will publish new knowledge ranging from the molecular basis to social and cultural factors. We will give new emphasis to translational reports which simultaneously highlight basic neurobiological mechanisms and clinical manifestations. Some of the Bulletin content is invited as special features or manuscripts organized as a theme by special guest editors. Most pages of the Bulletin are devoted to unsolicited manuscripts of high quality that report original data or where we can provide a special venue for a major study or workshop report.  Supplement issues are sometimes provided for manuscripts reporting from a recent conference.

The editorial policy of the Schizophrenia Bulletin generally follows the Uniform Requirements guidelines articulated by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors ( http://www.icmje.org ). The journal is published bi-monthly serving readership and contributors from the USA and internationally. Each issue of the Bulletin will be based on a major review and/or one or more themes comprised of 2-5 Reviews Articles covering clinical and basic scientific aspects of the theme area of the issue. Topics for future issues will be announced ahead of time and Original Reports related to the themes will be accepted for review. Some theme issues will be based on workshops and meeting symposia.

We consider the Bulletin to be an ideal venue for special reports such as treatment guidelines or the presentation of translational science. The Bulletin will publish the proceedings and abstracts of the International Congress on Schizophrenia Research. The Bulletin will publish first person accounts, At Issue articles expressing opposing views on controversial scientific issues, succinct discourses on clinical and basic neuroscience concepts, and brief essays on the role of specific environmental and genetic factors in schizophrenia. The Schizophrenia Bulletin will continue the tradition of the front cover display of art from artists with mental illness.
