The detrimental effects of chronic stress are increasingly evident in preclinical and clinical research. We created Chronic Stress to give a focused platform to highlight original and review articles related to all aspects of stress-related psychiatric disorders and symptomology. In addition to its focus on the behavioral and biological effects of chronic stress, we emphasize the recently proposed Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) in by providing a platform to discuss how to best define and study chronic stress pathology within the RDoC framework; raise awareness about the RDoC concept to individuals, groups, and institutions with high stakes in mental health research and support discussion regarding the utility and relevance of this framework.
