D&A Journal cover

ADAA members receive a complimentary annual online subscription to Depression and Anxiety. With an impact factor of 4.61, this journal ranks 21 out of 135 in psychiatry journals and 9 out of 75 in psychology journals.

Depression and Anxiety, the official journal of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, is available online only as of January 2013. The journal welcomes original research and synthetic review articles covering neurobiology (genetics and neuroimaging), epidemiology, experimental psychopathology, and treatment (psychotherapeutic and pharmacologic) aspects of mood and anxiety disorders, and related phenomena in humans.

A priority is placed on papers focusing on treatment, as well as those providing cutting-edge reviews of key areas and issues, in order to enhance the clinical evaluation and care of individuals struggling with the effects of these disorders. All submissions are peer-reviewed; there is no handling or publishing fee.
