Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica acts as an international forum for the dissemination of information advancing the science and practice of psychiatry. In particular we focus on ‘translating’ frontline research into useful updating information for the benefit of clinical psychiatry and clinical psychiatric research. Also translational neuroscience research is a topic of growing importance to our readers.

Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica publishes high-quality, scientific articles in English, representing clinical and experimental work in psychiatry. Original articles are welcomed, especially those that bring new knowledge or extend the present understanding of mental disorders. Equal priority is given to review articles/meta-analyses and clinical overview articles.

Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica is a truly international journal which publishes papers of the highest quality from around the world. Published monthly, each issue is designed to ensure that you are kept fully aware of all important developments in both clinical and research settings, as well as concentrating on their implications for the advancement of the specialty. The publications cover all areas of modern psychiatry. All manuscripts published have been assessed by at least two experienced referees.

Debate within psychiatry is encouraged in the form of Letters to the Editor, commentaries and discussion papers.
