The World Journal of Biological Psychiatry

The World Federation of Societies of Biological Psychiatry produces a peer reviewed scientific journal that is published 8 times a year.

Founded in 1974 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the World Federation of Societies of Biological Psychiatry is a non-profit, international organization composed of over 60 national societies of biological psychiatry, representing over 4,500 professionals.
As a world authority on biological psychiatry, WFSBP is also highly committed to pioneering and promoting the highest levels of education and dissemination within the field. 
With this multitude of countries represented in its worldwide community, the World Federation has built an international network of opinion leaders, the majority of which are key opinion-leaders in the practice of biological psychiatry.
