Depression and Anxiety, the official online journal of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America welcomes original research and synthetic review articles covering neurobiology (genetics and neuroimaging), epidemiology, experimental psychopathology, and treatment (psychotherapeutic and pharmacologic) aspects of mood and anxiety disorders, and related phenomena in humans.

In keeping with our goal of publishing only the best clinically relevant science, we have been fortunate to add to the Editorial Board many luminaries in our field, all of whom are committed to making Depression and Anxiety as good as it can possibly be. We have added additional non-North American members, with the goal of increasing the journal's global reach and representation. We are also delighted to have retained for another two-year term many extant Editorial Board Members, all of whom will continue to contribute to making our review process as rigorous, equitable, and rapid as possible. To the Editorial Board Members who are stepping down, we thank you for your service to the journal and hope to be able to count on you to continue to act as reviewers from time to time and, importantly, to send us some of your best work.


As the complexity of the clinical and translational science in our domains grows, we rely ever more strongly on our authors to convey their findings in a fashion that makes their discoveries intelligible to our readership. And we rely ever more strongly on our team of reviewers –to which our Editorial Board Members are heavy lifters – to select the most exciting and most meaningful manuscripts for publication. As our selectivity increases, we trust that readers and contributors to Depression and Anxiety will notice and appreciate the high quality of the papers we now publish. A big debt of gratitude goes to our Editorial Board for making it so.
