Established in 1956, the official journal of the Canadian Psychiatric Association has been keeping psychiatrists up-to-date on the latest research for more than 50 years. Researchers share their findings with nearly 6000 researchers, clinicians, and specialists by having their articles published in The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry.
Publishing 12 times a year, The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry includes peer-reviewed scientific articles analyzing ongoing developments in Canadian and international psychiatry. Regular features include:
• the popular In Review series, written by world leaders in psychiatric research on a broad range of biopsychosocial topics;
• the latest Original Research;
• systematic Review Papers;
• Book Reviews;
• Letters to the Editor; and
• official Position Papers, Position Statements, Policy Papers, and Clinical Practice Guidelines of the Canadian Psychiatric Association.
All of these contribute to the scholarly knowledge base. That’s why more Canadian psychiatrists read more pages of The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry than any of the 20 other medical publications the Print Measurement Bureau’s Medical Media Study analyzed in 2011. According to the most recent study:
• 67% of the more than 4000 psychiatrists in Canada read The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry;
• of those who read it, 79% said they read every issue and 97% said they read at least two of every four issues; and
• 77% of readers reported reading half or more of each issue.
Building on this success, Editor-in-Chief Dr Joel Paris and the Editorial Board are working to continue raising The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry’s impact factor, which was 2.417 in 2011. This maintains The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry’s status as one of the top general psychiatry journals in the world.
Through its online manuscript submission and peer review processing system, Manuscript Central, The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry receives nearly 200 manuscripts a year. Only about one-third of these manuscripts are accepted for publishing. This allows The CJP to publish only the highest quality research as quickly as possible. In 2012, an average article was published 10 months after it was submitted.
The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry is the obvious and proven readers’ choice.
CPA members and subscribers now have privileged access to an electronic version of The CJP. Identical to the print edition, the cyber-CJP is accessible, ahead of print. Nonmembers and nonsubscribers can read abstracts online ahead of print and full-text articles 6 months later.
