- Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health (CAPMH) is issuing a call for submissions on child and adolescent mental health related to the Covid-19 pandemic.
- Articles will be accepted on a rolling basis and organized into a thematic collection with overarching editorials.
- Any aspect of mental health in children and adolescents could be suitable for this collection, so long as there is a clear connection to the Covid-19 pandemic.
- For example, articles could address clinical system delivery, policy initiatives, telehealth, or innovative educational approaches – among many others.
- We especially encourage collaborative efforts within and between different regions of the world.
- Empirical studies using quantitative, qualitative or mixed method submissions are appropriate.
- Commentaries or other non-data-based submissions may be considered but are less likely to be suitable for publication.
- CAPMH is an open-access journal. As such, there are publication costs for authors of accepted articles. Fees depend on the authors’ regions and institutions of origin.
- We encourage submissions from low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) and have the ability to waive fees for authors with demonstrated need on a case-by-case basis.
- Given the acute and rapidly changing nature of the pandemic, we are committed to providing a rapid editorial decision, with a first decision submitted to authors no later than 3 weeks from the time of submission.
- All submissions will be peer reviewed, and an invitation to submit a manuscript does not imply its acceptance.
- We encourage inquiries prior to submission through contact with the theme series editors, who can be reached here.
- More information about CAPMH, including instructions for authors, is available here.
- Once ready, submissions can be uploaded through Editorial Manager by clicking here.
- Additionally, we are happy to announce that limited financial support is available for this thematic series and we encourage authors to contact the CAPMH editorial office (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further details upon acceptance.
