About CINP
The International College of Neuropsychopharmacology (CINP) is a truly worldwide organisation established over 50 years ago in Zurich, Switzerland. CINP hold meetings all over the world with the aim to promote research and education on a worldwide basis. These meetings mainly cover one of the four types below:
- Thematic Meetings
- Regional Meetings
- Training/Educational Programmes
- Biennial World Congress
Any member of CINP is able to submit a proposal to the Executive Committee via the CINP Central Office should you wish to hold a Thematic or Regional Meeting in your area.

The Executive Committee and Councillors of CINP are nominated by the membership and serve as an officer of the College for a minimum of 4 years. These individuals cover a wide range of disciplines within the field, from psychiatrists, psychopharmacologists, basic and clinical researchers to clinical psychologists. CINP also relies on its many subcommittees who undertake a variety of activities for the College.

Membership of the College is available to any individual to apply for and we offer members the opportunity to become part of this knowledgeable group of scientists who work at an international level. The membership application is reviewed by a dedicated committee on a regular basis and applications can be made online. As a member of CINP you may have the opportunity to be invited to one of the smaller meetings or invited to participate in the running of the College by sitting on a subcommittee.

The International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology (IJNP), with a steadily increasing impact factor, has become a sought after publication. Articles are received and peer-reviewed independently and published after a rigorous review process. CINP are pleased to announce that IJNP will become Open Access with Oxford University Press from 2015.
