About the book

Today, in the psychological, psychiatric, medical, anthropological, and sociological fields, there are numerous researches about the effects of the pandemic period on people's mental and physical health: it is a period characterized by uncertainty and anxiety.

This book intends to provide a comprehensive overview of this topic by exploring research, theories, biopsychosocial perspectives, and intercultural studies about the pandemic period. There are multiple objectives for this project. First, to analyze in-depth the updates from research and clinics on how psychological distress and resilience develops in different contemporary cultural and anthropological contexts. Secondly, to analyze the in-depth human potential and their associations with mental health, and thirdly, to investigate the interaction of demographic variables along different psychological and social trajectories and obtain detailed information on risk factors for the development of mental illness and existential distress.

Finally, this book aims to provide an overview of risk factors and epidemiology for prevention and to promote a better quality of life, resilience, and psychological well-being in the general population during this period.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

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, copy-editing 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.
