World Psychiatry (official WPA journal)





World Psychiatry
is the official journal of the World Psychiatric Association. The editor and founder is WPA President Prof Mario Maj, and associate editor is Prof Helen Herrman, WPA Secretary for Publications. It is a high quality journal of international mental health, widely disseminated to all countries. It supports publication of material from authors of all regions and countries. It publishes research articles from around the world, balanced with a significant proportion of Special Articles, Forums, Mental Health Policy Papers, Section Reports and WPA News, with the participation of many of the most highly cited authors in our field, aiming to keep the readership informed on significant clinical, service and research developments in mental health as well as on WPA initiatives.

It is now distributed to more than 33,000 psychiatrists worldwide. It is produced in the English, Spanish, Chinese and Russian languages. Selected articles or abstracts are translated into several other languages and posted on the WPA website and/or those of the relevant WPA Member Societies. The first French language edition will be published in early 2010.

The journal is indexed by PubMed, and full articles and abstracts since its inception in January 2002 are available online through PubMed as well as the journal website. In July 2006 World Psychiatry was accepted for inclusion in the Current Contents and in the Science Citation Index.  Its first impact factor, released in June 2009 is 3.896, ranking it as the 24th of 101 indexed psychiatric journals.
