Expanded Aims and Scope for NISC Journal

“The Journal of Child and Adolescent Mental Health seeks to promote coverage, representation and dissemination of high quality work from around the world that traverses high-, middle- and low – income contexts”, says Editor-in-Chief, Professor Soraya Seedat, in the Journal’s recently expanded aims and scope. 

The Journal of Child and Adolescent Mental Health seeks to publish work of relevance to both clinicians and academics, attracting international scholars and expanding the scope to encourage psychiatry papers. The journal’s expanded aims and scope covers topics that are pertinent to child and adolescent psychiatry and psychology, such as epidemiological, neurobiological, genetic, diagnostic, psychopathological, parent-child-family, ethical, social, and treatment aspects of childhood disorders. Original research, critical reviews on topics relevant to practitioners, clinical perspectives comprising analysis and discussion, clinical case series with in-depth discussion and letters to the editor are welcome.

The journal is included in Medline, Scopus and the Web of Science Emerging Sources Citation Index.
A selection of articles selected by the journal’s editor, Professor Soraya Seedat,  are listed below and are available to read without restriction until the end of November 2016. Amongst these articles is a Guest Editorial, written by Astrid Berg in Volume 28, 2016, Issue 2 which included a special section on infant mental health.

Since 1995, NISC has systematically built up competence and the necessary capacity in all aspects of publishing high-level research journals, with the professionalism needed to flourish in the increasingly competitive world of international research publications. No other publisher in South Africa commands the necessary technical skills, experience, competence, enthusiasm and resources to the same degree as NISC, in my view.

The biggest development in the history of Quaestiones Mathematicae was the association with NISC and to have the journal running in a very stable way without severe financial concerns.

The NISC partnership has benefited the Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology by bringing sustainability, additional branding and marketing, a wider reach through its websites, and the added value of expertise in the very competitive world of publishing.

It has been an enriching experience working with such enthusiastic and professional people at NISC who have become more friends than business partners over the years.
