How to publish in this journal


Since 1990, the official publication of the KACAP has covered the full range of mental health and neuroscience from infancy to adolescence. Given the characteristics that neurodevelopmental disorders that are developed in childhood can lead to lifelong disabilities, this journal today is now dealing with the progress of these childhood disorders into early adulthood. Although published by the KACAP, the editorial committee is willing to create a journal that transcends interdisciplinary and interstate barriers. In particular, there is no journal on pediatric psychiatry that represents the Asian region, and we are trying to play a role in helping to fully reflect the research and culture of Asian countries including members of the Asian Society of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Allied Professionals (ASCAPAP). The KACAP was established in 1983 and the journal has been published annually since 1990. Currently, it is issued quarterly (1st of January, April, July, and October). In the past both English and Korean manuscripts were published, but since 2018 only English papers have been published to expand the readership. In Korea, candidates for the study of child and adolescent psychiatry should have completed a four-year residency in general psychiatry, followed by a two-year course in a full-time fellowship program in KACAP-certified training hospitals. In order to become a board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist, qualifying examinations, including paper and oral tests, must be passed. Join the conversation about this journal
