Aims and Scope
The Open Journal of Psychiatry & Allied Sciences (OJPAS?) is a peer-reviewed biannual academic journal. New ideas come from fresh minds before they are bogged down by conventional thinking. In the journal, we plan to tap those materials, ideas, and discussions. A long felt need of present day psychiatry is to understand the cultural influence on symptoms, management, and most importantly, on prevention of mental illnesses. This can be undertaken only by reporting and analysing the cases in that cultural rubrick. The journal aims to be the platform for discussions towards the same. It publishes editorial, article, research, case, and commentary in the fields of psychiatry, psychiatric nursing, psychiatric social work, clinical psychology, allied behavioural and medical sciences.
In addition, OJPAS? will bring the psychiatric research from Low And Middle Income Countries (LAMIC) as well as LAMIC-related psychiatric issues to global platform. In other words, indexation of scientific literature related to psychiatry from LAMIC in major bibliographic databases globally. The journal will publish rare/unique psychiatry cases in LAMIC, LAMIC-related topics like problems faced/unaddressed issues of psychiatry, along with research reports containing data from LAMIC. It aims at formation of a global consortium for research and exchange of clinical dialogues on psychiatry and allied health sciences with an attempt to bridge the LAMIC-non LAMIC gap.
