The Lancet Psychiatry

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : THE LANCET PSYCHIATRY

 

From the  website for the journal:

The Lancet Psychiatry launched in print and online in June 2014, following in the footsteps of other Lancet specialty journals such as The Lancet Oncology and The Lancet Neurology. The journal offers the same fast track experience offered by its sister journals for all authors of research papers that are selected for peer review, where articles can be published online within 8 weeks of submission.

The journal publishes a range of article types in psychiatry, including Original Research, Reviews, Personal Views, Comments, and News articles. Topics include psychopharmacology, psychotherapy and psychosocial approaches to all psychiatric disorders, across the life course. The journal covers innovative treatments and the biological research underpinning such developments, novel methods of service delivery, and new ways of thinking about mental illness promoted by social psychiatry. The journal will also advocate strongly for the rights of people with mental health disorders, and welcome the voices of service users.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2014) to present.

Contention: the multidisciplinary journal of social protest

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Contention : the multidisciplinary journal of social protest.

From the publisher website for the journal:

Contention is dedicated to research on and about social protest and political behavior. The journal advances essential knowledge of a comprehensive range of collective actions, social movements, and other forms of political and social contention. By providing a multidiscipinary forum to scholars within and across the social sciences and humanities, it seeks to promote scholarly exchange and knowledge sharing among them.

While recognizing the importance of the contribution that the increasing specialization of knowledge has brought to the understanding of political behavior and collective action, Contention aims to reconstruct the fragmentation of the scientific discourse by offering in each issue a coherent but diversified range of articles from different theoretical, methodological, and philosophical approaches.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2013) to present.

Access Contention via the ejournals@cambridge A-Z or at this link.
