Diversity distinguishes the "Swiss Archives of Neurology, Psychiatry and Psychotherapy" from similar scientific journals. The journal covers psychiatry, psychotherapy, neurology and neurosciences - the full breadth of a pluralistic specialist area.
From the beginning the journal served as the organ for scientific exchange in its field in Switzerland and was thus an important channel of communication for psychiatrists and neurologists.
The current journal is a continuation of the "Swiss Archives of Neurology and Psychiatry", a publication rich in tradition and reputation, which was founded in 1917 by the famous neurologist and psychiatrist C. von Monakow.
It was a platform for uncensored publishing during the Second World War and has a long tradition of publishing the work of outstanding scientists, including a Nobel Prize winner.
In the early years the journal was edited by Professor Dr C. von Monakow, Professor Dr P. Dubois, Professor Dr R. Weber, Dr B. Manzoni and Professor Dr H. W. Maier, in collaboration with the leading academic authorities of the time in the fields of psychiatry and neurology, including Professor E. Bleuler.
