Information for Advertisers


Physicians Postgraduate Press, Inc., publishes 2 journals, both of which are indexed in PubMed/MEDLINE:

The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry (JCP), founded in 1939, is a printed “hybrid” journal, meaning it has both print and online-only content with each issue. JCP posts new material weekly and is printed on a quarterly basis, eg, January-March issue.

Th​e Primary Care Companion for CNS Disorders (PCC), founded in 1998, is an online-only journal with weekly online postings of new material. Whereas JCP targets psychiatrists and other providers of mental health care, PCC expands the scope of JCP by reaching primary care physicians and other health care professionals who treat patients with mental and neurologic illnesses.

Advertising can be placed in JCP print issues, on any of the family of sites, and in many of our outreach services, including emails and podcasts. For information regarding our readership, metrics, ad specs, and who to contact, see Print Advertising and/or Electronic Advertising.
