"Journal of Psychiatry is one of the leading journals in Forensic Psychiatry. Â The Journal of Psychiatry publishes in-depth case studies, current research and short articles on mental health, crime and the law. This acclaimed journal is essential to all serious psychiatric or legal collections.Forensic psychiatry deals with issues arising in the edge between psychiatry and the law, and with the stream of mentally disordered offenders along a continuum of social systems. Modern Forensic psychiatry has benefited from four key developments: the evolution in the understanding and appreciation of the relationship between mental illness and criminality; the evolution of the legal tests to describe legal insanity; the new methodologies for the treatment of mental conditions providing alternatives to custodial care; and the changes in attitudes and perceptions of mental illness among the public. A forensic psychiatrist may also have a clinical practice. However, when acting in the capacity of a forensic specialist, he or she is not providing therapy to improve the patient's suffering or to help the patient be free and healthy, but an objective evaluation for use by the retaining institution, attorney, or court. Forensic psychiatrists use their particular knowledge of the medical-legal interface to testify in cases of medical misconduct, including the explosion of accusations of sexual development of patients by health professionals.OMICS group organize international conferences annually all over the world along with hosting leading peer-reviewed journals.
