Journal of Child Psychology & Psychiatry (JCPP)

ACAMH members get full text access to the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry (JCPP).

The Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry (JCPP) is widely recognised to be the leading international journal covering both child and adolescent psychology and psychiatry. JCPP publishes the highest quality clinically relevant research in psychology, psychiatry and related disciplines. With a large and expanding global readership, its coverage includes studies on epidemiology, diagnosis, psychotherapeutic and psychopharmacological treatments, behaviour, cognition, neuroscience, neurobiology and genetic aspects of childhood disorders.

Articles published include experimental, longitudinal and intervention studies, especially those that advance our understanding of developmental psychopathology and that inform both theory and clinical practice. An important function of the Journal is to bring together empirical research, clinical studies and systematic reviews of high quality that arise from different points of view, different theoretical perspectives and different disciplines.

It has a current two-year impact factor of 6.129, and is published each month by Wiley.

“JCPP… integrates clinical and developmental perspectives, it is truly international, and interdisciplinary, and it combines high scientific standards with attention to clinical relevance.”

Professor Sir Michael Rutter
