Special Issue Information

In recent years, polygenic risk scores that summarize an individual’s polygenic risk for schizophrenia (SZ) have been increasingly researched, both in patient and control populations. This special issue of the Journal of Psychiatry and Brain Science aims to provide a clearer picture of the associations of phenotypes with SZ polygenic risk. Articles that will be published in this special issue are not limited to any specific clinical or non-clinical population or kind of phenotype (e.g. behavioral or biological), as it is our goal to capture the full spectrum of effects of SZ polygenic risk. Importantly, also articles with negative findings (non-associations) of phenotypes theoretically thought to be related to polygenic risk for SZ are explicitly invited.

We are welcoming both original research articles and review articles.

Submission Deadline: 31 October 2018
