Psychoneuroendocrinology: The Official Journal of the ISPNE

Psychoneuroendocrinology publishes papers dealing with the interrelated disciplines of psychology, neurobiology, endocrinology, immunology, neurology, and psychiatry, with an emphasis on multidisciplinary studies aiming at integrating these disciplines in terms of either basic research or clinical implications. One of the main goals is to understand how a variety of psychobiological factors interact in the expression of the stress response as it relates to the development and/or maintenance of neuropsychiatric illnesses. The Journal is international and comprises original research papers, reviews of an area of the literature, or at an appropriate stage in the development of the author's own work, commentaries in areas of current interest, short communications and book reviews.

Prospective authors should review submission requirements and submit online.  Instructions and requirements are provided at Guide for Authors on Elsevier's site. Although reviews, editorials and commentaries are usually by invitation, interested authors can contact the Co-Editors to discuss the suitability of topics for either category of submissions.

Psychoneuroendocrinology is included in the Science Citation Index reports in the categories: Endocrinology & Metabolism and Neurosciences.
