Also included within this huge site is different videos, publications and news.  There are also different symposiums and conferences from many different countries.  Speaking of these different countries, the WAP has FIVE different translations  available:  English, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese.

While the copyright of the website started in 2008, it does appear some of the information does need to be updated, such as some of the translations are not copied over to the correct language, and the Members Area is not complete, but it does look like work is being done and there appears to be a plethora of information available as it is.

Schizophrenia Research Forum

The mission of the SRF is to help in the search for causes, treatments, and understanding of the devastating disease of schizophrenia. Our goal is to foster collaboration among researchers by providing an international online forum where ideas, research news, and data can be presented and discussed. The website is intended to bring together scientists working specifically on schizophrenia, scientists researching related diseases, and basic scientists whose work can shed light on these diseases. In this way, we hope that the Schizophrenia Research Forum will be a catalyst for creative thinking in the quest to understand a deeply complex disease.

It is our goal to create and maintain up-to-date content of the highest quality. The website is free of charge to users, independent of industry sponsorship, and open to the public. Though geared toward researchers, we welcome other visitors—people with mental illnesses, families, the media, and others who need accurate information on research into schizophrenia. We do, however, require that users who wish to post comments and other materials be registered members. All such materials are subject to approval by the editorial team. As a “forum,” we encourage participation and welcome feedback from the community.
