Global publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc., and the Anxiety Disorders Association of America (ADAA) today announced a new agreement whereby Wiley's journal, Depression and Anxiety, becomes an official publication of ADAA, and complimentary subscriptions to the journal will be made available to the professional membership of ADAA.

Depression and Anxiety publishes original research and synthetic review articles covering a range of aspects of anxiety, stress, and mood disorders and related phenomena in humans and animals, and has as its intended readership psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, psychopharmacologists, and healthcare professionals in the behavioral sciences.

"We look forward to working with the ADAA to bring the content of Depression and Anxiety to a broad audience of researchers and clinicians in the behavioral sciences," said Joe Ingram, Vice President & Executive Publisher, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. "The partnership is an excellent opportunity for us to work to enhance the journal's strength as a source of essential information for the field."

"This opportunity further establishes ADAA as a professional organization that not only supports research, but works to translate and disseminate advancements," said ADAA president and CEO Jerilyn Ross, M.A., L.I.C.S.W. "The ADAA is the only organization focusing on anxiety and comorbid disorders with interests, activities, members, and supporters that span from researchers to clinicians to patients."

Depression and Anxiety is led by Editor-in-Chief Thomas Uhde, M.D., of the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine who noted, "the journal's affiliation with the ADAA represents a natural alignment of interests because both the journal's Editorial Board and the ADAA are committed to advancing the research and treatment of anxiety and mood disorders, which disable millions of people worldwide."
