Neuropsychiatric Genetics, Part B of the American Journal of Medical Genetics (AJMG), provides a forum for experimental and clinical investigations of the genetic, epigenetic and protein signaling mechanisms underlying neurologic and psychiatric disorders. It is a resource for novel genetics studies of the heritable nature of psychiatric and other nervous system disorders, characterized at the molecular, cellular or behavioral levels. Neuropsychiatric Genetics publishes eight times per year.

Why should you publish in Neuropsychiatric Genetics?

1. We have no page limitations so you can publish a substantial amount of work in a single article.

2. We will publish rapid communications of full-length, critically reviewed papers that report new and important advances in neuropsychiatric genetics. In order to have a manuscript considered for rapid publication, authors must write a letter of intent prior to submission and send an abstract to the Editors for consideration. The letter of intent should outline the author’s rationale for publishing the article as a rapid publication.

3. You can choose open access publication (for a fee) or traditional no fee publication.

4. Articles are indexed in PubMed and Web of Science and are easily accessed at

5. Free access to your article:
a. For 10 of your colleagues. This feature is retrospective even articles already published offer this feature for free colleague access.
b. For you, in perpetuity.
c. For the public (2 years), if your work is selected for a virtual issue



Psychiatric Genetics: publishes papers which bring together clinical observations, psychological and behavioural abnormalities and genetic data. The journal is also a forum for reporting new approaches to genetic research in psychiatry and neurology utilizing novel techniques or methodologies. Psychiatric Genetics publishes original Research Reports dealing with inherited factors involved in psychiatric and neurological disorders. This encompasses gene localization and chromosome markers, changes in neuronal gene expression related to psychiatric disease, linkage genetics analyses, family, twin and adoption studies, and genetically based animal models of neuropsychiatric disease. The journal covers areas such as molecular neurobiology and molecular genetics relevant to mental illness.

Psychiatric Genetics also publishes Book Reviews, Brief Reports and Conference Reports.
