'The Genetic Basis of Mood and Anxiety Disorders' thematic series now accepting submissions

 Biology of Mood & Anxiety Disorders invites the submission of original research for inclusion in a new thematic series, ‘The Genetic Basis of Mood and Anxiety Disorders’, to be published later this year.

The series will be guest edited by Elisabeth Binder (Emory University, USA and Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Germany) and aims to provide a widely accessible forum for the presentation and discussion of advances and approaches for mapping the genetic basis of mood and anxiety disorders. Large scale genetic association studies published in the last few years indicate that the main effects of common variants are difficult to identify in mood and anxiety disorders, suggesting that additional approaches are needed for a better understanding of the genetics of these disorders.

This series will highlight the use of alternative phenotypes to categorical disease constructs including dimensional, behavioural and neurobiological endophenotypes. Also of interest to this series are translational approaches integrating animal and human data along with measures of environmental exposure and functional annotation of genetic variants. High quality research will be published alongside a series of invited reviews by leading experts in the field.

Please submit your manuscript via our online submission system, stating clearly in the cover letter that you would like your submission to be considered for publication in ‘The Genetic Basis of Mood and Anxiety Disorders’ thematic series.

Edited by Ahmad Hariri and Lisa Shin, Biology of Mood & Anxiety Disorders publishes highly innovative basic, translational, and clinical research that advances our understanding of the pathophysiology of mood and anxiety disorders. For more information about the journal, please visit our website.
