Contents: Special Schizophrenia Issue
Many of today’s readers of JOM may not know that our publication began life as the Journal of Schizophrenia in 1967, became the journal of the American Schizophrenia Association and was renamed Schizophrenia in 1969, was changed to the Journal of Orthomolecular Psychiatry in 1972 as the official journal of the Academy of Orthomolecular Psychiatry, and in 1986 evolved to its present title, the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, the official journal of the International Society for Orthomolecular Medicine.
This issue of the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine is devoted to the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of Schizophrenia. Following Dr. Hoffer’s current overview of schizophrenia diagnosis, we reprint four classic papers spanning the thirty years of our publishing history. We trust our readers will find them as interesting and relevant now as when they first appeared.
