About the journal
The Journal of Current Therapy of Mental Disorders has been published since 2006 and is peer-reviewed. The journal is indexed by Russian Science Citation Index and adheres to the international ethical principles for scientific publications of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). The main aim of our journal is to provide wide range of specialists with relevant information on the latest domestic and international evidence-based knowledge on the management of mental disorders.
The editors regularly acquaint readers with the latest Russian and international investigations on the treatment of mental illness. Along with the publication of articles on the latest achievements of biological psychiatry, the journal presents the results of neuropsychiatric studies on the pathogenesis of mental disorders and the mechanisms of action of psychopharmacologic agents, as well as relevant reviews, meta-analyzes, treatment algorithms, clinical guidelines, expert consensus statements. The journal also highlights the questions of psychotherapy.
We believe that such interdisciplinary approach will be useful for all specialists who are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with different types of mental disorders.
In order to select high-quality and reliable information, editorial board members review original Russian articles to publish only studies carried out in accordance with accepted standards of evidence-based medicine. We prioritize randomized controlled trials as well as systematic literature review analysis.
By combining different approaches to the treatment and secondary prevention of mental illness as well as considering the rehabilitation of patients with mental disorders as multifaceted process, we hope to provide assistance to private and general practitioners, workers of day care, dispensaries, crisis hospitals and psychiatric clinics.
The journal is published every quarter. Our goal is the widest possible distribution of the publication. Therefore, our readers have free access to all journal issues. We hope that when receiving our journal, they will not only read it, but will also enter into a lively discussion of published materials, share their experiences and their own observations. Perhaps this discussion will encourage birth of the new knowledge, combining the best from various fields of medicine.
The editors will be grateful for any constructive feedback and suggestions.
Honored Scientist of the Russian Federation, Professor Mosolov S.N.
