2   Link   Bipolar Disorders
Bipolar disorders is a severe and debilitating mental illness, which has only recently started to receive the necessary attention from society, researchers, practitioners, government, and private funding agencies. In response to the need for further awareness, education, and research on this severe mental illness, the International Society for Bipolar Disorders was created in 1999. In the same year Bipolar Disorders, the official journal of the society, was launched. This international journal publishes all research of relevance to the basic mechanisms, clinical aspects, or treatment of bipolar disorders. It intends to provide a single international outlet for new research in this area. With an outstanding impact factor, the journal has made a huge impact on the biological psychiatry community and continues to be a valuable resource for authors and researchers alike.

5   Link   Journal of Abnormal Psychology
The Journal of Abnormal Psychology® publishes articles on basic research and theory in the broad field of abnormal behavior, its determinants, and its correlates. The following general topics fall within its area of major focus:
psychopathology—its etiology, development, symptomatology, and course;
normal processes in abnormal individuals;
pathological or atypical features of the behavior of normal persons;
experimental studies, with human or animal subjects, relating to disordered emotional behavior or pathology;
sociocultural effects on pathological processes, including the influence of gender and ethnicity; and

studies of a variety of populations that have clinical interest, including but not limited to medical patients, ethnic minorities, persons with serious mental illness, and community samples;
studies that have a cross-cultural or demographic focus and are of interest for treating behavior disorders;
studies of personality and of its assessment and development where these have a clear bearing on problems of clinical dysfunction and treatment;
studies of gender, ethnicity, or sexual orientation that have a clear bearing on diagnosis, assessment, and treatment;
studies of psychosocial aspects of health behaviors; and
methodologically sound case studies pertinent to the preceding topics.
Studies that focus on populations that fall anywhere within the lifespan are considered.
JCCP welcomes submissions on treatment and prevention in all areas of clinical and clinical–health psychology and especially on topics that appeal to a broad clinical–scientist and practitioner audience.
JCCP encourages the submission of theory–based interventions, studies that investigate mechanisms of change, and studies of the effectiveness of treatments in real-world settings.
7   Link   Psychological Assessment

Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry

A Journal of Experimental Psychopathology

The Journal welcomes contributions to the understanding and treatment of psychopathology. Such contributions may stem from various theoretical perspectives, such as learning theory, cognitive science, social psychology, developmental psychology, etc. The Journal primarily focuses on experimental tests of psychological approaches to psychopathology, though contributions from medicine, biology, sociology, or epidemiology may be published. The same holds for non-experimental approaches, which may occasionally be published if deemed relevant for the field of experimental psychopathology. Papers to be published generally focus on:

•Theoretically or clinically relevant differences between specific patient groups and other groups, if experimentally tested;
•Mechanisms that cause, perpetuate or reduce disorders;
•Diagnostic or therapeutic procedures
14   Link   Cognitive and Behavioral Practice
Cognitive and Behavioral Practice is a quarterly international journal that serves an enduring resource for empirically informed methods of clinical practice. Its mission is to bridge the gap between published research and the actual clinical practice of cognitive behavior therapy. Cognitive and Behavioral Practice publishes clinically rich accounts of innovative assessment and diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are clearly grounded in empirical research. A focus on application and implementation of procedures is maintained. Topics are selected to address challenges facing practitioners, both in terms of the process (e.g., therapeutic relationship) and the content of treatment. Articles will reflect both a knowledge of the past research literature as well as the database of clinical experience. 'Most issues, in addition to regular articles provide either a case conference or special topics within empirically supported clinical practice. Cognitive and Behavioral Case conferences include a number of clinicians responding to a single clinical case vignette. Special series contain multiple manuscripts that center on a particular diagnostic category, population or therapeutic strategy. This journal is for the practicing psychologist, instructors, and researchers with an interest in the clinical application of their findings. Continuing education examinations are included in each issue.
