Administration and Policy in Mental Health and Mental Health Services Research aims to improve the effectiveness of mental health and related human service programs by advancing research on services and the practice and process of administration in the mental health setting. This journal publishes peer-reviewed, original empirical research articles and administrative and policy notes, which are commentaries, observations, and/or opinions that are briefer and less research-oriented than articles. Manuscripts on children and adults are equally welcome. While substance abuse is not a priority for the journal, those studies on co-occurring disorders are gladly received. Reviews, especially meta-analyses are welcome. Letters to the editor are acceptable as well essays that present theoretical or conceptual frameworks or discuss current policy issues are desirable.
