Emerald Publishing and Hindawi have recently entered into a publishing partnership agreement whereby Emerald’s open access journal Mental Illness will be transferred to the Hindawi portfolio on 19th July. Mental Illness will be led by an expanded Editorial Board and will be joined by the new Editor in Chief Domenico De Berardis, University of G. d'Annunzio Chieti and Pescara, Chieti, Italy. The journal welcomes psychiatry-related articles, reviews, and brief reports.
Submissions are currently open and will continue to be during this transfer with no anticipated disruption to open submissions. The journal will remain under the ownership of Emerald while being fully managed by Hindawi. Hindawi will provide peer review administration, production and online publication – utilizing the in-house publishing platform – as well as day-to-day correspondence with the editorial teams and all marketing, promotion and development for the journal.
