Chronic Stress is a peer-reviewed, open-access, journal that focuses on the neurobiology, prevention, assessment, and treatment of the behavioral and biological effect of stress.

The role of resilience and the detrimental effects of chronic stress on our brains, bodies, and behavior are being increasingly recognized by scientists, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, biostatisticians, epidemiologists, occupational researchers, and physicians of all medical specialties. Chronic Stress was created to publish research intended to advance our understanding of the nature and mechanisms of stress, as well as, to contribute to the identification of the biological, behavioral, and social interventions to prevent, assess, and treat the negative effects of stress and to foster and build resilience.

Chronic Stress is a peer-reviewed, open-access, journal that publishes original and review articles related to all aspects of stress, including preclinical and clinical studies of stress-related psychiatric disorders (e.g. mood, anxiety, and trauma disorders).

Chronic Stress focuses on the neurobiology, prevention, assessment, and treatment of the behavioral and biological effect of stress. Progress in the field of psychiatry and clinical neuroscience has been hampered by the lack of replicable biosignatures of diagnosis, biomarkers of treatment response, and biological surrogate treatment endpoints. This is especially affected by the fact that psychiatric diagnoses are heterogeneous syndromes and difficult to model preclinically. Conversely, prolonged stress has long been studied preclinically and is a major component of most psychiatric disorders, with a constellation of clinical biological abnormalities that appear to be disease non-specific and primarily related to the negative effects of prolonged stress (e.g. gray matter abnormalities). Chronic Stress highlights translational and clinical reports focusing on biomarkers and treatment of prolonged stress, regardless of the psychiatric diagnosis.

Chronic Stress was created to publish research intended to advance our understanding of the nature and mechanisms of stress, as well as, to contribute to the identification of the biological, behavioral, and social interventions to prevent, assess, and treat the negative effects of stress and to foster and build resilience. It aims to be a leading resource for by scientists, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, biostatisticians, epidemiologists, occupational researchers, and physicians of all medical specialties. Types of papers currently being accepted for peer-review include original research papers, brief reports, research reviews, auto-commentary, correspondence, and commentary.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • The neurobiology of mental illnesses
  • The role and the neurobiology of resilience
  • The effects of trauma and stress on the brain
  • The systemic effects of trauma and stress
  • The relationship between mental illnesses and trauma and stress
  • The relationship between medical illnesses and trauma and stress
  • Biological, behavioral, and social interventions to prevent or treat the negative effects of trauma and stress
  • Epidemiology of trauma and stress
  • Social impact of trauma and stress
