BJPsych International provides psychiatrists and all mental health professionals with an overview of current policy and practice in psychiatry from a global perspective. Our primary mission is to provide a publication platform for authors from low-and-middle-income countries. Published on behalf of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, the journal is entirely open access. We accept peer-reviewed articles dealing with developments in mental health policy, novel approaches to the management of mental health services, and we promote worldwide training in psychiatry. As the BJPsych International evolves, we intend to highlight more digital content, such as videos and podcasts to accompany our published articles. Regular features include thematic papers exploring topical subjects and Global Echoes, a section dedicated to contributions from trainees and junior doctors. We do not publish original empirical research, but may occasionally accept audits that have clinical implications of international relevance.
