Special Issue "Biomarkers of Treatment Response in Psychiatric Disorders"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
Psychiatric disorders are leading causes of chronic disability and are characterized by high clinical variability, high levels of relapses/recurrences, and unpredictable treatment response. In the context of the development of personalized medicine in psychiatry, it is important to improve patients’ stratification but also to monitor response and compliance. For this purpose, deciphering the molecular mechanisms underlying treatment response in psychiatric disorders is essential.
We are pleased to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences. It will focus on recent research concerning the molecular mechanisms involved in treatment response and potential of biomarkers to predict treatment response in psychiatric disorders.
High-quality manuscripts presenting original research or expert review articles on both human subjects and preclinical models will be considered. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: genetic, epigenetic, and transcriptomic biomarkers.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.
Dr. Cynthia Marie-Claire
Manuscript Submission Information

Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English.
