Description

Psychopharmacology is an international journal that covers the broad topic of elucidating mechanisms by which drugs affect behavior. The scope of the journal encompasses the following fields:

Human Psychopharmacology: Experimental

This section includes manuscripts describing the effects of drugs on mood, behavior, cognition and physiology in humans.  The journal encourages submissions that involve brain imaging, genetics, neuroendocrinology, and developmental topics.  Usually manuscripts in this section describe studies conducted under controlled conditions, but occasionally descriptive or observational studies are also considered.

Human Psychopharmacology: Clinical and Translational

This section comprises studies addressing the broad intersection of drugs and psychiatric illness. This includes not only clinical trials and studies of drug usage and metabolism, drug surveillance, and pharmacoepidemiology, but also work utilizing the entire range of clinically relevant methodologies, including neuroimaging, pharmacogenetics, cognitive science, biomarkers, and others. Work directed toward the translation of preclinical to clinical knowledge is especially encouraged. The key feature of submissions to this section is that they involve a focus on clinical aspects.

Preclinical psychopharmacology: Behavioral and Neural

This section considers reports on the effects of compounds with defined chemical structures on any aspect of behavior, in particular when correlated with neurochemical effects, in species other than humans. Manuscripts containing neuroscientific techniques in combination with behavior are welcome. We encourage reports of studies that provide insight into the mechanisms of drug action, at the behavioral and molecular levels.

Preclinical Psychopharmacology: Translational

This section considers manuscripts that enhance the confidence in a central mechanism that could be of
