About the book

Like any disease, schizophrenia research is dedicated to patients with the diagnosis, their loved ones, and their community. The advancement in treatment depends on research, dissemination, evidence translation that must be easily available to researchers internationally with both transparency and commitment to the highest ethical values that are patient-centered. This book aims to inform the patient, the researchers, and clinicians, and bring together the stakeholders a multi-disciplinary approach to an understanding of the perplexing puzzle of schizophrenia.

This book is meant as a reference for researchers and students with education in mind as well as for the clinician to hand to their patients and families.

The chapters in this book will be organized into various topics with the intent of taking the readers on a journey of understanding of schizophrenia and its symptoms & diagnosis, epidemiology, mechanisms of actions, brain imaging, psychopharmacology, psycho-behavioral intervention, social inclusion, community care, social action, diversity & inclusion, novel therapeutics, and future direction. People with schizophrenia often face stigma in society, and this book intends to inform on improvement in diagnostics, management of clinical trajectories, and therapeutic intervention to provide the much need relief of help that is on the way.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Tikel

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
