Late last week, I received this notice that may be of interest to readers who are interested in the topic of schizophrenia and peer-reviewed journal articles:

The Special Issue of Current Directions in Psychological Science on Schizophrenia has been getting so much attention that, in special arrangement with our publisher SAGE, we have just made the issue completely Open Access.

Open Access means that all the articles are open to anyone to read and download — it’s free! It’s rare to see a journal publisher agree to make an entire issue of their journal open and free to the public to read. So enjoy this little gift from the Association for Psychological Science and SAGE.

While schizophrenia is likely to affect less than 1% of the general population, it’s impact on families and social services is much greater than that. You can learn more about schizophrenia here.

This special journal issue on schizophrenia offers a broad overview of research into schizophrenia, including review articles looking at prenatal, functional and structural brain abnormalities, social and genetic factors that contribute to schizophrenia. It’s a great issue, especially if you wanted to know what our current understanding about this serious mental illness is.
