CFP: Socioeconomic factors and mental health

Socioeconomic factors and mental health: past and present (Special Issue CfP, Palgrave Communications)

Palgrave Communications is an open access journal published by Palgrave Macmillan dedicated to publishing high quality original research across all areas of the humanities and social sciences. Article proposals and full submissions are now being sought for this special issue.

This article collection, edited by Professor Matthew Smith and Dr Lucas Richert (University of Strathclyde), will examine how the relationship between socioeconomic factors and mental health has been and is understood in an array of different places and periods. Although much of the focus of current mental health research and clinical practice is on the neurological aspects of mental illness and psychopharmacological treatment, historical research demonstrates that a wide range of factors – from vitamin deficiencies such as pellagra, and infections such as syphilis to traumatic life events – have contributed to the onset and exacerbation of mental health problems. Among all these factors, one looms largest: socioeconomic status. On the one hand, socioeconomic inequality has been long recognised as a potential cause of mental illness, as the history of mental hygiene and social psychiatry during much of the twentieth century demonstrates. On the other hand, however, the mentally ill have also historically faced much socioeconomic hardship; today, a high proportion of the homeless and incarcerated in many countries suffer from mental illness.

By exploring this topic across time and place, this collection aims to provide a historical context for today’s mental health crisis, and also to inform current mental health policy, especially attempts to prevent or alleviate mental illness through social change.

Insights on a broad spectrum of themes are welcomed, including, but not restricted to

  • Homelessness and mental illness
  • Social psychiatry and mental hygiene
  • Community mental health
  • Forensic psychiatry
  • Race and mental health
  • Psychiatry and various economic/political systems (e.g., communism, socialism, capitalism)
  • Socioeconomic factors and child mental health
  • How health professionals deal with poverty and mental health
  • Social policy and mental health
  • Social activism and mental health

This is a rolling article collection and as such proposals and submissions will be welcome throughout 2017. However, full submissions received by November 1 will be considered for publication as part of the collection’s formal launch in 2018.

Authors who are interested in submitting a paper for any of the collections listed below should send a short abstract-length summary to the Editorial Office outlining the scope of their proposed paper. Any general enquiries can also be directed to this address.

CFP: Advances in Nursing Science

The current issue of ANS marks the beginning of the 40th year since ANS first appeared in print!  This first 40th-volume issue features cutting-edge scholarship that builds on previously published work in ANS, and in doing so points toward the future of nursing scholarship and practice.  Throughout the coming year we will celebrate many of the articles published over the past 40 years – works that have enduring significance for the discipline.

Watch for our “Editor’s Pick” articles over the next several weeks, read the articles, and visit our ANS Blog to share your comments.

Peggy L. Chinn, RN, Ph, FAAN
Professor Emerita, University of Connecticut
Editor, Advances in Nursing Science

The primary purposes of Advances in Nursing Science (ANS) are to advance the development of nursing knowledge and to promote the integration of nursing philosophies, theories and research with practice. While the journal provides scholarly articles that have relevance for all health-related disciplines, we are particularly committed to claiming nursing’s rightful place in the development of health knowledge. We expect high scholarly merit and encourage innovative, cutting edge ideas that challenge prior assumptions and that present new, intellectually challenging perspectives. We seek works that speak to global sustainability and that take an intersectional approach, recognizing class, color, sexual and gender identity, and other dimensions of human experience related to health. Manuscripts can be based on any methodology, including scholarly inquiry/research, philosophic and theoretic analysis/synthesis, integrative reviews, and original exploration of diverse approaches to creating nursing knowledge. All submissions must include a statement that addresses the significance of the work for the evolution of the discipline of nursing.
