Call for Papers

Data Science for Mental Health – Call for Papers


How can we use data analysis to tackle mental health issues like depression, dementia diagnosis, and the monitoring of cognitive function?


We are delighted to announce that Evidence-Based Mental Health will be publishing a special issue about data science for mental health.


Data-driven approaches have become key in answering important scientific questions. Some areas of medicine are already benefiting from data science, such as prevention of heart disease and treatment of some cancers. For mental health and neuroscience, data science is at a relatively early stage, but there are a lot of potential applications of data science in mental health research, from aetiology, detection and diagnosis to treatment development/evaluation, disease management and health services research. This issue aims to bring together the latest research and thinking in such an innovative and fast developing field. Original articles, including quantitative or qualitative studies, clinical or systematic reviews, are welcome.


Deadline for submissions: 30 November 2019
Publication date: February 2020
