About the Thematic Series

There are a multitude of potential reasons behind the onset of schizophrenia. While some may explain the condition through external factors, such as drug use or trauma, this Thematic Series will consider the potential causes lying low beneath our own genetic material. It has been suggested that certain individuals could be predisposed to schizophrenia, potentially through family members or diathesis-stress models.

Alternative explanations include syndromes and patterns previously referenced in the literature, including 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, schizophrenia onset post-infection, variations in single nucleotide polymorphisms and more.

Genetics do not only feed into literature concerning the onset of schizophrenia. Much rather, treatments have the potential to be adapted to an individual based on genetics, as the influence of pharmacogenomics spreads further into neuropsychiatric illnesses. Therefore, genetics may be able to reveal answers about the origins of schizophrenia, but also the best treatment methods for patients.

The journal is seeking original submissions and review articles on the following topics related to genetic factors in schizophrenia:

• Susceptibility genes for schizophrenia
• miRNA precursors and genetic syndromes (e.g., 22q11.2 deletion syndrome)
• Associations between brain regions linked to immunity and onset of schizophrenia after infection
• Variations in single nucleotide polymorphisms
• Genome wide associations between schizophrenia and specific genes
• Placental gene-expression loci

What is the advantage to you of publishing in Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment?

  • It is an open access journal which means that your paper is available to anyone in the world to download for free directly from the Dove website.
  • Although Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment receives a large number of papers, unlike many traditional journals, your paper will not be rejected due to lack of space. We are an electronic journal and there are no limits on the number or size of the papers we can publish.
  • The time from submission to a decision being made on a paper can, in many journals, take some months and this is very frustrating for authors. Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment has a quicker turnaround time than this. Generally peer review is complete within 3-4 weeks and the editor’s decision within 2-14 days of this. It is therefore very rare to have to wait more than 6 weeks for first editorial decision.
  • Many authors have found that our peer reviewer’s comments substantially add to their final papers.

To recover our editorial and production costs and continue to provide our content at no cost to readers we charge authors or their institution a publication processing fee.
