JCPP Advances

JCPP Advances will launch in November 2020, with its first issue in Spring 2021. It is a new, high quality, high impact open access journal in the field of child psychology and psychiatry and related disciplines. It builds on the values and prestige of its sister publication, the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, to advance the field by opening new opportunities for diverse researchers and for the dissemination of innovative science. 

It has a commitment to open science, rapid publication and creating a high-quality publishing experience for authors. It aims to promote ground-breaking research, new theoretical perspectives and methodological innovation. JCPP Advances operates a fast manuscript transfer system from its sister publication. We make it easier for authors to submit their work through format free submission. For many we provide easy access to institutional open access funds.

JCPP Advances adopts the continuous publication format and publishes six issues per annual volume.

“Great to see the launch of our sister journal JCPP Advances – what a welcome addition to the JCPP family. It’s a fully Open Access journal that complements JCPP, and Henrik and I will work closely together to give authors the greatest possible choice of publication models while continuing to ensure, as always, the highest scientific standards and production values.”
Edmund Sonuga-Barke, JCPP Editor-in-Chief
