Welcome to the Romanian Journal of Psychopharmacology!
As the official publication of the Romanian Society for Biological Psychiatry and Psychopharmacology, which is a proud member of the World Federation of Societies for Biological Psychiatry
, the Romanian Journal of Psychopharmacology is the only one covering this field nationally and, to the best of our knowledge, regionally.
We started our activity in 2001 by publishing original papers in Romanian from professionals in Psychiatry, as an attempt to provide a platform for exchanging ideas and research between the members of the former Romanian Association for Psychopharmacology. The journal was well accepted during that time and managed to publish regularly ever since. Despite inherent editorial difficulties, we continued the development and we have been publishing 4 issues per year in English since 2007. We are indexed in the official CNCSIS
national database in the B+ category (no. 740). In 2009, we have been accepted by Index Copernicus, with an impact factor of 5.21 in 2013. We are now focusing on the submission of the journal to other databases and we have began the process of implementing the recommendations of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (www.icmje.org
We thank our contributors from Romania, Israel, Austria, Moldova, Germany, USA, Canada, Italy, France and Sweden and also to the peer-reviewers that insured the scientific quality of the papers published so far.
We look forward to welcoming new and interesting articles in the field of biological psychiatry and psychopharmacology that will bring valuable data in the benefit of our patients and our profession.
