1.   INTERPSYCH JOURNAL - Request for Input

InterPsych is in the process of negotiating with
two publishers regarding publication of an
electronically distributed, peer-reviewed journal.
Initial plans are to publish short empirical
articles in psychiatry, clinical psychology, and
experimental psychopathology.

We are currently gathering additional information
to include with the proposal that we are submitting
to the publishers. As part of this effort it would
be useful to hear from members of the academic
community about those aspects of electronically
distributed journals that would influence decisions
about submitting or subscribing to (or reading)
such a journal.

Relevant factors might include mode of access,
cost, level of scholarly review, stature of
editorial board, scope of content coverage,
circulation, speed of publication, etc.

We would be pleased if you would take a few moments
to send us your opinion on these matters. Please
direct comments to David L. DiLalla, Ph.D.
