The world's most-cited Multidisciplinary Psychology journal
This section aims at promoting research into clinical psychology, psychotherapy, counseling, rehabilitation psychology, neuropsychology and all the fields of psychological interventions in traditional clinical settings (public and private hospitals, clinics, services, laboratories, etc.) and innovative clinical settings (remote outpatients’ clinics, tele-health, e-health and mHealth based settings).
We welcome contributions concerned with the interplay between medicine and psychology in the treatment of mental diseases. Guidelines, protocols, investigations, and researches about clinical psychology in hospitals are welcome, including articles in psychological and neuropsychological rehabilitation, psychotherapy and in all the other areas where clinical psychology is significantly present. Moreover, we welcome clinical trials, observational studies, research articles, reviews, meta-analysis, debates and short reports about evidence-based practice in clinical psychology and empirically supported psychological treatments in order to improve the evidence-based approach in clinical psychology and to spread a scientific point of view about psychological applications. The specialty was renamed in February 2019 from “Clinical and Health Psychology" into "Psychology for Clinical Settings".

All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Psychology for Clinical Settings, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Psychology for Clinical Settings 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 Psychology.
