Frontiers journals are at the top of citation and impact metrics
The section aims at publishing significant clinical and basic research findings on all of psychiatric related aspects by using both conventional and high-throughput molecular approaches. Specifically, we welcome papers on the following topics: 1) identification of genes and genetic variants related to psychiatric disorders; 2) characterization of genes, biological pathways, and non-coding RNAs implicated in psychiatric disorders by using both in vivo and in vitro approaches; 3) neuroimaging investigation to assess the nature, etiology, and pathophysiology of psychiatric disorders; and 4) determination of basic functional mechanisms by which psychopharmacological agents exert their effects. While Molecular Psychiatry is primarily centered on human studies, in vitro and animal studies that are closely related to psychiatric research on humans are also welcome. Our ultimate goal is to accelerate the communications in the field and to stimulate molecular research on all of Psychiatry.

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Molecular Psychiatry welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Case Report, Clinical Trial, Correction, Editorial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Study Protocol and Systematic Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Molecular Psychiatry, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Molecular Psychiatry will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Psychiatry.
