I’m delighted to announce that the International Journal of Mental Health and Mental Capacity Law is now open for business. Rising phoenix-like from the ashes of the late lamented Journal of Mental Health Law, this new Journal is an international peer reviewed open access journal devoted to the intersection between law, mental health and mental capacity. The editor-in-chief is Kris Gledhill, and I am one of the editors. It is intended to be multi-disciplinary in approach, and we invite submissions from legal, medical and social work practitioners, along with academics concerned with these vitally important areas.
More details and a further specific call for papers for a themed issue that I am editing with a team from Queen Mary University of London and a forensic psychiatrist to follow shortly.
In the meanwhile, I invite you to visit the website, where you can browse – for free – the rich archive of articles from the Journal of Mental Health Law between 2000 and 2011.
