International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology (IJNP)

CINP is pleased that its relationship with Oxford University Press (OUP), as the publisher of our official Journal, the International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology (IJNP), has progressed very nicely since its inception in 2015. The move to OUP was associated with the IJNP becoming a fully open-access journal. This has expedited articles being published more rapidly but has also broadened its availability to investigators world-wide and increased those with access to it. Evidence for this is that the total number of downloads of our articles has increased almost fourfold and now averages about 52,000/month, according to Editor-in-Chief Anthony Grace (photo).

If you would like to submit an article, please read the author guidelines before uploading. A benefit to being a CINP member with respect to the open access fee is provided, being $1500 per article for members but $2200/article for non-members.

The central focus of the International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology (IJNP) is on research that advances understanding of existing and new neuropsychopharmacological agents including their mode of action and clinical application or provides insights into the biological basis of psychiatric disorders and thereby advances their pharmacological treatment.

IJNP has an Impact Factor of 5.678 and a 5-year Impact Factor of 5.975 according to the most recent Journal Citation Reports® (Thomson Reuters). This places the journal 42 out of 261 in the category of Pharmacology & Pharmacy. The Impact Factor is the average number of times articles from the journal published in the past two years have been cited in the JCR year. The Impact Factor is calculated by dividing the number of citations in the JCR year by the total number of articles published in the two previous years. The five-year Impact Factor is calculated in the same way as the standard Impact Factor, except the standard two-year window for inclusion of articles is extended to five years.

Dr. Joseph Zohar, current CINP president, stated, “IJNP has been an important part of the life of the CINP and a venue for the publication of outstanding and impactful science. Under the leadership of our editor-in-chief, Anthony Grace, our outstanding collaboration with Oxford University Press is helping us to increase the visibility of papers appearing in IJNP. It is also making IJNP more user-friendly for both contributing authors and readers.”

IJNP’s focus is on research which advances the understanding of neuropsychopharmacological agents and more novel treatment modalities such as stimulation approaches, including their clinical applications, or which provides insights into the biological basis of neuropsychiatric disorders and thereby advances their treatment.
