Hirokazu Doi: Nagaoka University of Technology, Japan

Submission Status: Open   |   Submission Deadline: 21 March 2024

BMC Psychology is calling for submissions to our Collection on Artificial Intelligence in Psychological Research and Care.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is trained to recognize emotions, understand human feelings, and analyze neuropsychological functions, which in turn accelerates research in all areas of psychology. As it is becoming more available for scholars, AI is becoming increasingly crucial for psychologists, therapists, and counselors to understand the existing capacity and future potential for the technology to transform psychology research and mental healthcare.

New Content ItemThis collection supports and amplifies research related to SDG 3: Good Health & Wellbeing.
