Information for Advertisers


Physicians Postgraduate Press, Inc., publishes 2 bimonthly 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 in even months, eg, January/February 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 Psychiatrist.com 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.

Readership and Ad Exposure

Among all psychiatry journals indexed by the National Library of Medicine (MEDLINE/PubMed), The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry ranks first among independent clinical journals in both readership and ad page exposures in all metrics published by Kantar Media, Inc., in the June 2019 Psychiatric Journal Market Section Survey.

The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, in its more than 80-year history publishing original peer-reviewed research, has focused on practicing clinical psychiatrists and health care providers in the behavioral and neural sciences. The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry’s #1 rank means your ads are most likely to reach the highest prescribers of neurotropic medications, who make up its mail list.

Advertising Principles

Physicians Postgraduate Press, Inc., adheres to the highest ethical standards when interspersing advertisements throughout the journal: (1) placement is held in the strictest confidence; (2) ads on a specific drug or topic are not placed immediately adjacent to editorial material of the same; (3) for non-premium positions, ads are rotated throughout the book from issue to issue.
