The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

Journal Online-versions

About Journal Online-versions

There are online-versions of three Royal College of Psychiatrists' journals (The British Journal of PsychiatryBJPsych Bulletin and BJPsych Advances). The online-versions of the journals contain the same text content but have the additional benefit of a considerable number of features to improve the ease and speed with which content can be accessed and searched (see below). BJPsych Open is a new (online-only) open access journal with the same online features (but there is no print version).

Evidence-Based Mental Health journal is hosted on the same platform (by HighWire) as the College journals so whilst its online-version may look slightly different, many of the search functions and other online features are the same.
