COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Call for papers: Machine learning and artificial intelligence

New Content ItemIt’s a time of “big data”. Machine learning and artificial intelligence are being increasingly utilised in healthcare settings. These technologies have potential to aid in the rapid and cost-effective prevention, detection, and treatment of mental disorders. We call for papers for this Special Issue that further our understanding of the utility of machine learning and artificial intelligence in the field of eating disorders.
