Aims and Scope

Global Psychiatry Archives is a self-published, peer-reviewed scientific psychiatric journal that aims to advance global mental health by making relevant scientific psychiatric knowledge easily accessible to all, i.e., mental health professionals, patients, families, and relatives from countries throughout the globe.

We publish in English, bi-annually (two issues per year). The journal is self-published giving independence to the editorial board to focus on the best scientific publications.

We accept original papers, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, case-reports, global perspectives, and editorials in English language on general, biological, social and clinical psychiatry, clinical psychology, psychiatric epidemiology, global mental health issues, neuroscience and related fields relevant to psychiatry and global mental disorders.

We particularly want to support researchers and authors from the developing economies as well as from communities that don't have robust healthcare systems or where medical funding for research is unavailable.

We support and mentor new and young authors from across the globe to publish their research, especially on currently ­­­­­­neglected areas of mental health care. Some of the most downloaded papers have been written by medical students, junior doctors, and young clinical psychologists.

We are also keen to document the current and recent psychiatric history for future generations. We therefore published several articles on the personal histories of psychiatry as lived and experienced by eminent and young psychiatrists and clinical psychologists.

Examples of international subjects we covered recently include:

  • Academic psychiatry journals in South Asian countries: most from India, none from Afghanistan, Bhutan and the Maldives
  • Epidemiology of suicides in Brazil: a systematic review
  • Mental Health Problems in Iraq: a systematic review
  • Women with schizophrenia have worse clinical presentation compared to their men counterpart in Kosovo: a cross-sectional study.
  • Observation of Rare Psychosocial and Mental Health Symptoms in ISIS Psychiatric Patients: A Pilot Study Among ISIS Affiliates
  • Assessing and Responding to Suicide Risk in Health Research in Low-Resource Settings: Implementation of a Suicide Response Protocol in Ghana
  • Similar Attitudes Toward Death among Muslims and Christians in Iraq
  • Examining the Context of Global Psychiatry in the Post-Pandemic Era: Predictions of the Experts
  • Similar dynamics of terminal functional decline in nursing home residents with and without dementia in Switzerland
