Deep Phenotyping of Psychiatric Diseases

Dear Colleagues,

Psychiatric diseases are complex and have many component phenotypes. Understanding the genetic basis of those phenotypes may offer special promise for illuminating the diseases. Deep phenotyping refers to studies that study large numbers of phenotypes in each patient. We are therefore inviting the submissions of deep phenotyping of psychiatric diseases that study digital, clinical, behavioral, neurophysiological, and neuroanatomic phenotypes, as well as genotypes to assess their genetic background and contributions to psychiatric diseases.

Virtual Special Issue (VSI) is a collection of papers centered around a specific topic, led by an expert (Guest Editor) in the field. Virtual Special Issues are an important component of our journal and cover current hot topics within the scope of the journal.

All papers belonging to a Virtual Special Issue will be gathered together on a single webpage. They are published in the regular issues of the journal as soon as publishable, and labeled as belonging to the Virtual Special Issue. A link from each paper will take you to the Virtual Special Issue website.

Submissions to Virtual Special Issues will undergo the same rigorous peer-review process as regular papers submitted to the journal.
