The new acquisition complements Emerald’s existing portfolio of journals in Health and Social Care by expanding its mental health coverage and diversifying its product offerings to include psychiatry and clinical health.
Tony Roche, Publishing and Strategic Relations Director at Emerald, said: “We are excited to bring the Mental Illness publication into Emerald’s growing Health and Social Care programme. This journal offers an important new bridge into clinical health practice in the field of mental health, wellness and illness.”
The Journal, which will be open access and published under a CC-BY model, will contribute to Emerald’s growing list of open access options, providing authors with more choice and flexibility to publish based on preference, funder and institutional mandates, budget, and the need to publish open access research quickly, says Emerald.
Michele Moscato, CEO of PAGEPress Publications, commented: “This is a great opportunity for the future of mental illness. We would like to thank Dr Robert Bota, Editor in Chief, for all his collaboration and hard work over the past few years in ensuring the journal has become a landmark in the treatment of mental illness.
“Emerald will provide a fantastic new home for the journal and we wish the journal every continued success in a secure long-term future with the publisher.”
