Aims and scope

This journal focuses on the latest advances in the multifaceted treatment of psychiatric disorders. Designed for physicians and other mental health professionals, Current Treatment Options in Psychiatry offers expert reviews on the management of a range of mental health conditions, including

  • Schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders
  • Substance use disorders
  • Anxiety, obsessive-compulsive, and related disorders
  • Mood disorders
  • Eating and other impulse control disorders
  • Personality disorders

Articles cover a range of established and emerging treatment options across the lifespan, and their innovative, hands-on format makes them ideal for informing treatment decisions at the point of care.

We accomplish this by appointing leaders in the field to serve as Section Editors in key areas. Section Editors, in turn, select the most pressing topics as well as experts to present the latest research, assess the efficacy of available treatment options, and discuss special considerations.

Additionally, an international Editorial Board—representing a range of disciplines within psychiatry and psychology—ensures that the journal content includes current, emerging research and suggests articles of special interest to their country or region.
