The current journal is a continuation of the Swiss Archives of Neurology and Psychiatry, a publication rich in tradition and reputation, which was founded in 1917 by the famous neurologist and psychiatrist C. von Monakow. 

It was a platform for uncensored publishing during the Second World War and has a long tradition of publishing the work of outstanding scientists, including a Nobel Prize winner. 

In the early years the journal was edited by Professor Dr C. von Monakow, Professor Dr P. Dubois, Professor Dr R. Weber, Dr B. Manzoni and Professor Dr H. W. Maier, in collaboration with the leading academic authorities of the time in the fields of psychiatry and neurology, including Professor E. Bleuler.

Sources of Revenue

SANP is not published for the sake of earning advertising revenue but sells advertising for the sake of being published.

SANP accepts advertisements to finance the open access publication without page charges, and the production of the printed edition. Other sources of income are subscriptions of the print version and the sale of reprints, rights, and royalties. 

At EMH Swiss Medical Publishers Ltd. the editing and marketing teams are strictly divided up, fully preventing the content of our magazines from becoming mired in business-related interests.
