During its 200-year history, the Royal College of Psychiatrists has conducted all of its publishing in-house and this is the first time the College has worked with an external partner. 

The College's books and journals in the RCPsych portfolio: The British Journal of Psychiatry(BJPsych), BJPsych OpenBJPsych AdvancesBJPsych Bulletin and BJPsych Internationalwill join Cambridge's impressive psychiatry publishing programme from January next year.

Ann Avouris, Journals Publisher at the Press who worked on the deal, said: "It's been incredibly exciting for the STM team to work on this deal and it is a huge privilege to be the first publisher to distribute their materials."

The College's flagship title, BJPsych, a top tier international psychiatric journal, publishes original research papers, covering all branches of psychiatry. The journal seeks to improve the prevention, investigation, diagnosis, treatment and care of mental illness as well as the promotion of mental health globally.

Editor-in-Chief, Professor Kamaldeep Bhui said: "Partnering with Cambridge University Press is a great opportunity for the College to further promote the reach and quality of our premier journals and books. CUP has a heritage of academic publications and a charitable status commensurate with the College's values and mission. We are looking forward to this partnership and so pursuing better care for people with mental illnesses, and strengthening evidence-based practice among our members and mental health professionals around the world."

Cambridge will also partner with the College on their book publishing programme. Over the past three decades the College has published a wide range of successful titles for psychiatrists, other mental health professionals, and the general public, and Cambridge is pleased to be handling both the highly regarded backlist and working with the College on forthcoming titles. 

Speaking about the new partnership Mandy Hill, Managing Director for Academic Publishing at the Press, said: "We are delighted to be partnering with the Royal College of Psychiatrists to publish their distinguished journals and books from 2018. The titles complement our already prominent psychiatry publishing programme, and we look forward to collaborating with the College, Editorial Boards and membership, to ensure the continued growth and dissemination of their portfolio."
