A Note from the Editor in Chief

"Journal of Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders carves out an intellectual home for research in the causes of OCD, its true nature, and its boundaries with other seemingly similar mental disorders.

As the founding Editor-in-Chief of JOCRD, my vision for the Journal is to create an international and interdisciplinary forum to foster communication and collaboration across the various clinical and academic fields concerned with OCD. I am energized and privileged to be working with a talented international group of Associate Editors and Editorial Board Members.

Looking ahead to our first year, we will be publishing papers by leading psychologists and psychiatrists focusing on the genetics of OCD, cognitive-behavioral approaches, OCD in the elderly and the very young, novel treatment approaches, hoarding, impulse control disorders, body dysmorphic disorder, and ethnic diversity in OCD."

Rationale and vision

Journal of Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders is an international journal that publishes high quality research and clinically-oriented articles dealing with all aspects of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and related conditions (OC spectrum disorders; e.g., trichotillomania, hoarding, body dysmorphic disorder).

The journal invites studies of clinical and non-clinical (i.e., student) samples of all age groups from the fields of psychiatry, psychology, neuroscience, and other medical and health sciences. The journal's broad focus encompasses classification, assessment, psychological and psychiatric treatment, prevention, psychopathology, neurobiology and genetics. Clinical reports (descriptions of innovative treatment methods) and book reviews on all aspects of OCD-related disorders will be considered, as will theoretical and review articles that make valuable contributions.
