Editor of Psychiatric Times invites its readership to submit views on DSM-5 for potential publication

Post #117 Shortlink:

Although the current DSM-5 Development Timeline has a third draft scheduled for release in January-February, 2012, for a two month period for public comment, this final draft is expected to be delayed until spring, pending completion of the DSM-5 field trials.
