Call for Papers - Special Issue 2017

Child and Adolescent Mental Health invites manuscripts for a special issue on Global Mental Health, to be edited by Professor Jane Barlow (University of Warwick), due for publication in November 2017.

This special issue of CAMH will focus on research that addresses global mental health issues with regard to the mental health and well-being of children and adolescents. We would particularly welcome research that addresses the following issues:

• The aetiology and prevalence of mental health problems in children in low and middle income countries
• Innovative methods of primary or secondary prevention of mental health problems in diverse settings (e.g. schools; communities etc.)
• Innovative methods of treating children experiencing mental health problems

We wish to encourage the submission of papers that have sufficient methodological rigour to enable generalisation to other geographical locations.

Interested authors should submit a letter of intent as a word file to the CAMH editorial office ( with 'Global mental health special issue' in the subject line by 30th November 2016.

The letter should include the following: tentative title; brief description (500 words or less) of the proposed submission; brief explanation (100 words or less) of how the proposed submission makes a unique contribution to our understanding of this field; names and affiliations of all anticipated authors; and contact information of the corresponding author.

The editor will review all letters and invite selected papers to be submitted as full manuscripts. First submissions will be due no later than 10-12 weeks after invitation.

Call for Reviewers

The Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health would like to invite members of the child and adolescent mental health research community to join us in maintaining and strengthening the internationally recognised journal Child and Adolescent Mental Health as Reviewers.

We invite applications from members of the child and mental health research community worldwide.

The journal follows a single-blind peer review policy. We expect the review within 3 weeks with the possibility of an extension in exceptional cases. If the manuscript progresses to the next stage, you are likely to be invited to do a quick re-review concentrating on the revised part of the manuscript. You will be copied into the final decision email sent out to the authors.

The journal publishes articles, biographical items, reviews, meeting abstracts, letters, and news items. Find out more about the journal’s aims and scope now.

(a) a brief note giving details of current institutional affiliation and role, and list of all publications;
(b) a cover letter (max. 1 page), which includes any relevant experience which will help you fulfil the role, along with details about your current/past involvement with any other journal;
(c) keywords spanning your research interests and expertise, selected from the list enclosed; please tick as many as apply, add any of your own and enclose the document with your application. Keywords help us to assign appropriate articles for review. Download the keywords document template now.
