BRIEFING: EDITORIAL ALLIANCE BETWEEN THE ACTAS ESPAÑOLAS DE PSIQUIATRÍA JOURNAL AND AMAZING BOOKS SCIENTIFIC PUBLISHERS.
A new stage for the editorial development of the journal Actas Españolas de Psiquiatría has begun. To strengthen its presence among both Spanish and English-speaking readers, it has entered into a compelling alliance with Amazing Books publishers to co-publish the journal. This new distribution mode is access free and will now be more widely disseminated for users who want to read it in paper format, while maintaining the open access system, offered as usual by the organisation on its online platform.
Amazing Books, now co-editor of the journal Actas Españolas de Psiquiatría, is a Spanish scientific publishing company that operates throughout the world via its distribution channels. The intention of both entities with this editorial alliance is to give new impetus to the prestigious specialist media in the fields of Psychiatry, Medical Psychology and Mental Health, publishing both original articles and scientific reviews.
Amazing Books is the new editorial partner of the Juan José López Ibor Foundation, which disseminates scientific models. This alliance unites different scientific specialists by publishing its magazine with medical, veterinary and pharmaceutical content, and now also with psychiatrists and psychologists. This is in line with the WHO Constitutional statement of 1946: Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease.
Actas Españolas de Psiquiatría is among the most prestigious and selective bibliographic indexes in the world and boasts prestigious figures from the national and international world of psychiatry among its collaborators. Its publication in English facilitates access to researchers from all over the world, thus placing this journal as one of the most important in Psychiatry.
In the articles it publishes, the editorial committee looks for quality, originality and, above all, scientific interest. The selection process for publishing papers is exhaustive and implemented with the utmost care; with its goal being to maintain the quality of the magazine and its prestige throughout its history of over 70 years.
Actas Españolas de Psiquiatría also intends to act as a vehicle for training psychiatrists, which is why it has created a specific section which includes the publication of clinical cases, among others.
In addition, supplements on special topics are published within the aforementioned fields. It is published bi-monthly, making a total of 6 issues a year, and will be offered to readers free in the online mode, as well as now in a printed version, following this new stage, distributed in the main bookstores of all 5 continents.
