CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition


The journal L’Information Psychiatrique aims to provide a review of the most recent data on the scientific debates driving psychiatry, as well as the up-to-date knowledge needed for everyday practice. It allows practitioners to challenge their convictions with other approaches, both at home and abroad.

The journal publishes original work in the following main areas: clinical practice, psychopathology, therapy, and the care framework. It presents scientifically and methodologically rigorous, peer-reviewed articles. These appear in thematic issues or in one of the recurring sections: CLINICAL CASES, IN LIVING MEMORY, ISSUES IN TRAINING, E-PSYCHIATRY, OPEN QUESTIONS, HISTORY OF PSYCHIATRY, THE PSYCHIATRIST’S LIBRARY, BOOK SELECTIONS AND REVIEWS, FILM REVIEWS, and EMERGENT PSYCHOSES. (The last of these appeared between mid-2017 and mid-2018 in anticipation of the SIP’s 2018 congress.) The journal is organized around an editorial committee, as well as a reading committee, which is renewed on a regular basis.

The journal is also published electronically (, allowing readers to consult fifteen years of archival material.
