Call for Papers - Complex Psychiatry

Biology, Genomics and Epidemiology of Mental Health Problems Related to COVID-19

Journal: Complex Psychiatry - Extended Submission Deadline: June 30, 2024

The Complex Psychiatry journal aims to bring together in this article collection research articles, review articles, as well as brief reports that focus on furthering our understanding of the biology, genomics, and epidemiology of mental health problems related to COVID-19. Despite an increasing number of COVID-19 articles published since the beginning of the pandemic, we believe that there is still a gap in knowledge regarding the genetic epidemiology of mental health in this context, which this article collection aims to address.


Topics of particular interest are:

  • Studies of the causal relationships of COVID-19 traits and psychiatric traits
  • Epidemiology of COVID-19 with respect to psychiatric illness
  • Genome-wide studies of comorbidities involving COVID-19 and mental health
  • Pleiotropy analyses regarding COVID-19 and psychiatric traits


Please select the option Call for Papers: Biology, Genomics and Epidemiology of Mental Health Problems Related to COVID-19 when submitting your manuscript and mention this Call for Papers in your cover letter.
