Call for Papers: COVID-19 and Psychiatry Education

Academic Psychiatry is developing a collection of papers related to the COVID-19 pandemic and psychiatry education under the direction of Guest Editor Ann Schwartz, M.D. This collection will include not only a special print issue but also an online collection that will begin right away and continue to be curated and grow. 

We are looking for papers that have data about impact, interventions, and so forth. We are interested both in how programs have responded to the acute crisis (e.g., impact on technology use) and in how programs are teaching about the different intersections of COVID-19 and mental health (individual and population). We are also interested in papers that address problems or barriers encountered and resources that may be useful for academic psychiatrists, particularly if such papers include a foundation for assessment of efficacy and means of replicating.

Types of papers:

  • Quantitative and qualitative research and scholarship (Empirical Reports, In Brief Reports)
  • Rigorous analyses (Systematic and Other Reviews, Annotated Bibliographies, Commentaries)
  • Educational Case Reports
  • Columns (“Down to Earth” Academic Skills, Media, Missions)
  • Perspectives (Faculty Viewpoint, The Learner’s Voice, Letters to the Editor, Poetry)

For details on the submission process and manuscript formatting, please see the journal’s Instructions for Authors.

All submissions will undergo review via the journal’s Editorial Manager platform, and publication is not guaranteed.

Deadline: May 20, 2021

Please consider submitting any materials you feel may aid your colleagues in the current emergency.
