Presentazione

 

La Rivista di Psichiatria rappresenta uno dei più antichi fogli di approfondimento scientifico sui temi della Psichiatria del nostro Paese.

Con cadenza bimestrale, si articola in sezioni distinte: la prima raccoglie una review sui principali temi di attualità della psichiatria, permettendo al lettore un aggiornamento costante su argomenti di psicopatologia, diagnosi e terapia; la seconda sezione contiene lavori sperimentali e la terza un case report di particolare interesse scientifico. Le rubriche di presentazione delle novità librarie e dei Congressi, inserite nella sezione finale della Rivista, consentono al lettore una scelta ragionata sui temi da approfondire in base al personale interesse di studio e di lavoro.

Negli ultimi anni la Rivista si è avvalsa di contributi scientifici da parte dei maggiori esperti italiani dell'area accademica pubblicando, inoltre, lavori di collaborazione tra centri di ricerca italiani e Università straniere. Particolare attenzione è stata inoltre posta nella presentazione di esperienze del cosiddetto "territorio", con la scelta redazionale di pubblicare lavori provenienti da realtà quali i Servizi di Diagnosi e Cura ospedalieri, i Centri di Salute Mentale, i Day Hospital.

La versione online costituisce un ulteriore passo per l'ampliamento della conoscenza psichiatrica in Italia, al fine del potenziamento di strumenti operativi di informazione/formazione in un'area in continuo divenire come quella psichiatrica.

Dal gennaio 2010 ha raggiunto l'importante traguardo dell'indicizzazione su Medline, rendendo quindi possibile la ricerca degli articoli attraverso PubMed.

About us

 

Rivista di Psichiatria represents one of the earliest psychiatric journals in Italy. It publishes reviews of the principal up-to-date themes of psychiatry, allowing its readers to keep constantly up-to-date with subjects such as psychopathology, diagnosis and therapy, experimental projects and case reports of particular scientific interest. Some of the leading psychiatrists in Italy are in the Editorial Board of Rivista di Psichiatria.
In the last years the journal has received scientific contributions by Italy’s greatest experts in psychiatry. It has also published works in collaboration with foreign Universities, of particular interest for Europe.
The field of international exchanges is of major relevance for Rivista di Psichiatria.
Particular attention has also been paid to the presentation of experiences in the so-called “territory”, and one of its editorial choices is to publish works that come from realities such as General Hospital Psychiatric Wards, Community Mental Health Centres, and Day Hospitals and topics about Italian psychiatric reform.
Since 2004, Rivista di Psichiatria has gone online, taking another step towards increasing psychiatric knowledge in Italy, in order to increase operative instruments of information/training in an area, such as psychiatry, in continuous developing.
The Journal is cited by many important databases (Journal Citation Report/Social Sciences Edition, Science Citation Index Expanded (SciSearch®) Social Sciences Citation Index®, Social SciSearch® EMBASE/Excerpta Medica, Psychological Abstracts, PsycInfo, PsycAlert, Mental Health Abstracts/Dialog, Institute of Scientific Information CSI, Biosis Database, Lettera (Istituto Mario Negri), Faxon Finder, Faxon Xpress).
What is Peer Review? When a manuscript is presented, the editor-in-chief of the Rivista (Angela Iannitelli) selects two other editors, experts on the topic. These editors have two weeks to give their opinion, formulated through a form sent to them, which they then fill out. The editors are not known to the author and are obliged to inform the editor-in-chief of any possible conflict of interest which may arise. The two selected editors send their evaluation of the article to the editor-in-chief, together with suggestions as to how to improve it. The editor-in-chief refers these comments to the author and based on these, decides whether or not to publish the manuscript. When the editor-in-chief receives highly positive and/or highly negative comments about the same manuscript, she often requests additional revisions to eliminate any uncertainty. At the end of the revision process there are three possible outcomes for the article: being directly discarded, being unconditionally accepted or having the possibility to be revised, with or without specific suggestions and/or requests made by the editors.
