CALL FOR PAPERS
Understanding and Preventing Suicide Call for Papers
Suicide is a major public health issue and is a frequent cause of death worldwide. Risk of suicide is determined by a complex interaction of predisposing and precipitating determinants and understanding the issue requires an appreciation of the interplay between societal, psychological, spiritual, clinical, and biological factors. PLOS ONE is launching this Call for Papers to highlight ongoing and emerging research in this important area. The broad scope of PLOS ONE facilitates publication of the interdisciplinary research necessary to better understand and prevent suicidal behaviour.
Articles should be submitted by October 30, 2020. Accepted articles that fall into the scope described above will be included in a Collection that will be published in Spring 2021.
