Paper Resubmitted for Publication after Editorial Rejection

On August 9, 2013, the results of our completed study of LSD-assisted psychotherapy for anxiety associated with life-threatening illness were resubmitted for publication in a second peer-reviewed journal, the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease. We initially submitted the paper to the American Journal of Psychiatry, one of the world’s top psychiatry journals, on June 30, but the editors rejected the paper without sending it to reviewers. The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease is another prominent journal which published many of the pioneering LSD studies from 1956″1973. Led by Principal Investigator Peter Gasser, M.D., this was the first completed study of LSD in humans in over 40 years.The first subject was enrolled on April 23, 2008, and the last long-term follow-up interview was conducted on August 8, 2012.
