About

Journal

Computational Psychiatry (CPSY) will be the first journal solely dedicated to research in its burgeoning field.

The journal will publish original research articles and reviews that involve the application, analysis, or invention of theoretical, computational and statistical approaches to mental function and dysfunction. As an open access publication, all content will be freely available to readers across the globe.

PRESS RELEASE

Format

Exclusively online, continuous publication cycle. CPSY will publish articles, commentaries and reviews.

In addition, we have developed a new publication category which includes modifications, reassessments and retractions. This new type of submission provides authors a mechanism to reference and update or retract previous published work; with the idea that scientific progress, even in ‘published’ form, is rarely considered complete or perfect.

People

Editors

The journal will be edited by Peter Dayan, Director of the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit at University College London, and Read Montague, Director of the Human Neuroimaging Laboratory and Professor of Physics at Virginia Tech; and a Professor at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at University College London.

Teamed with MIT Press and their excellent catalog of journals, we expect Computational Psychiatry to provide groundbreaking insight into next-generation solutions to problems surrounding mental health.

Reviewers

The editors have reached out to a great number of people in the field and have had an overwhelmingly positive response.

At launch date we will have over 60 individuals that are willing to serve as reviewers from colleges and universities all over the world. As the field continues to gain momentum, we expect to need additional reviewer support. If you have an interest in serving as a reviewer, please contact us and let us hear from you.
