Under the auspices of the WPA section for publications, the WPA Task Force on publications has been actively involved in promoting editorial capacity in LAMIC countries through workshops. The workshops review selected journals from regions within the LAMIC group. The current workshop focused on Africa and Asia, with selected editors presenting content related to their journals. The aim was to establish the readiness for indexation in international databases, and to provide strategic input to facilitate this process. However, beyond indexation the workshop provided an opportunity to contribute towards improving quality of publications that would lead to a positive impact on mental health content in these regions. A further workshop is planned for Central and South American publications.
