JCP 75 Years

You Spoke, and We Listened: We’ re Growing!

Owing to popular demand, JCP is adding 2 new special sections to our pages on topics that are of increasing importance to your practice—suicide and addiction. We’ ve appointed highly qualified experts to cover these sections. Congratulations to Maria A. Oquendo, MD, editor of Focus on Suicide, and Daniel D. Langleben, MD, editor of Focus on Addiction.

Two of our sections are under new leadership. First, we congratulate Erika F. H. Saunders, MD, the newly appointed editor of our long-standing Early Career Psychiatrists section, and thank Marlene P. Freeman, MD, Vice-Editor in Chief of JCP, for her efforts in building and editing this offering over the years. Second, we are pleased to announce that Dilip V. Jeste, MD, has signed on as editor of our Alzheimer’s section, which will now evolve into Focus on Geriatric Psychiatry. We are indebted to Eric M. Reiman, MD, who has edited this section since its inception and, through his efforts, has brought important research to JCP’s pages.

The Focus on Childhood and Adolescent Mental Health section continues to flourish under the capable direction of Karen D. Wagner, MD, PhD, and we value our continued collaboration. I also offer special thanks to Dr Freeman, who shoulders double duty as editor of the Focus on Women’s Mental Health section.

Further, we are pleased to announce that we are addressing the topic of social media in a very special way. Soon, when you visit JCP online, you will find Social Media and Mental Health, an offering edited by James Niels Rosenquist, MD, PhD. Dr Rosenquist is a pioneer researcher in analyzing behavior exhibited in this new milieu. Social media has quickly become firmly weaved into the fabric of our society, and its ubiquitous presence has provided opportunities for CNS researchers to examine the flow of diseases throughout the population. Understanding how those suffering from psychiatric disorders utilize social media tools can help to better understand how patients learn about and convey to those around them the manifestations of their illnesses.

To coincide with the launch of these special sections and additions to our editorial team, JCP invites potential submitters to send in manuscripts to be a part of these exciting new endeavors. For more information or to submit your manuscript, please visit psychiatrist.com/authors.
