Call for papers – History of Psychiatry

Call for papers

Call for Papers:

The American Journal of Psychiatry Residents’ Journal seeks manuscripts for a special issue on the History of Psychiatry. The history of psychiatry is textured and diverse. Histories of “therapeutic” lobotomy, anti-psychiatry, insulin coma therapy, and drapetomania all reflect the vibrant and challenged past of the field of psychiatry. To reflect this richness, we invite submissions that relate to the history of psychiatry, broadly defined. For example, papers that cover pivotal moments, key figures, interesting innovations, or exciting narratives would be welcomed.

Below is a list of suggested article topics that would be appropriate for this special issue. It is not an inclusive list, and other categories and article ideas will most certainly be considered. Authors may submit articles that are not included in this list, but they should be in the scope of the theme.

Please visit the Residents’ Journal website for detailed instructions on article types and word limits:

Individuals enrolled in accredited U.S. or Canadian medical schools, or residents and fellows in U.S. or Canadian postgraduate training programs are eligible to submit manuscripts. We also invite submissions from students/trainees in other academic or clinical fields including nursing, physical/occupational therapy, psychology, etc.

We openly invite correspondence with authors throughout the development of an article. The deadline for manuscript submission is September 15, 2020.

Thank you,
