Invitation Special Issue CAPMH

Manuscript submission for special issue on Forensic Child and Adolescent Psychiatry


We are happy to invite you to submit your manuscript for a special issue on Forensic Child and Adolescent Psychiatry to be published in the open access, online journal Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health (CAPMH). In line with the theme of the 5th EFCAP Congress in Porto, the special issue will address mental health needs of young offenders and victims: Assessment, intervention and legal issues. Both comprehensive reviews and original research papers are welcome for possible publication in this issue.


The manuscript submission deadline is 30 November 2015. Manuscripts must be submitted through the usual CAPMH electronic submission process. This special issue will be fully open access and your paper will be published if accepted after international peer review. Please indicate in your cover letter to the Editor that the manuscript is being submitted for the special issue.


Open access publishing is not without costs. CAPMH therefore levies an article-processing charge of £1240/$1940/€1580 for each article accepted for publication. If the submitting author’s institution is a Member, the cost of the article-processing charge is covered by the membership. In the case of authors whose institutions are Supporter Members a discounted article-processing charge is payable by the author. CAPMH routinely waive charges for authors from low-income countries. On special consideration, the publication fee for two accepted special issue articles is waivered. Authors can request the guest editors for a waiver.


Individuals who are interested in submitting a manuscript are encouraged to contact either Dr. Schmeck ( or Dr. Boonmann ( to discuss further. We would appreciate it if you could let us know before the 15th of September 2015 whether you will be submitting a paper.


We are looking forward to your ideas.


Best Regards,


Prof. Klaus Schmeck & Dr. Cyril Boonmann
