Established in 1956, The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry (The CJP) has kept psychiatrists up-to-date on the latest research for nearly 60 years. The CJP publishes 12 times per year and provides a forum for psychiatry and mental health professionals to share their findings with more than 3000 researchers and clinicians.

The CJP 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.

  • NEW perspectives articles that take evidence-based sides on controversial, complex, or emerging themes.

  • The latest Original Research and Systematic Review papers.

  • Book Reviews and Letters to the Editor.

  • Official Position Papers, Policy Statements, and Clinical Practice Guidelines of the Canadian Psychiatric Association.

  • Supplements
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 2013. According to the most recent study:
  • 61% of the 4668 psychiatrists in Canada read The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry.

  • Of those who read it, 71% said they read every issue and 97% said they read at least two of every four issues.

  • 68% of readers reported reading half or more of the last issue.
