Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry is a peer-reviewed medical journal which focuses on clinical psychiatry, especially depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety, addiction, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, as well as several other mental disorders. It is the official journal of the American Society for Clinical Psychopharmacology, continuing in series the earlier title Diseases of the Nervous System which was published 1940-1978.

The journal publishes a number of sponsored supplements, which require registration to access on-line, but are otherwise free of charge, unlike the main journal. Although these supplements may be perceived as more biased by commercial
