National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: PTSD Research Quarterly [Spring 1990] [open pdf - 199KB]
"Our inaugural issue of the PTSD [Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder] Research Quarterly contains an overview of articles that appeared during 1989. In this regard, it differs somewhat from future issues, which will focus on specific topic areas such as theory, biology, epidemiology, assessment/diagnosis, treatment, cross-cultural issues, and risk factors. Editorial choices were based largely on scientific merit, but other factors, such as an article's interest to the field, also influenced selection. In some cases we have included descriptive and clinical papers on important questions that we hope will be addressed rigorously in future research protocols. The 18 papers from 1989 abstracted in the following pages demonstrate the breadth and diversity of recent PTSD publications. In addition, we present (on pages 5-7) an additional 27 citations, as an annotated bibliography that should also interest our readers."
