SOCRATES Assessment of Perceptual Abnormalities and Unusual Thought Content
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
The aim of the SOCRATES assessment is to provide a systematic and comprehensive approach to the assessment of perceptual abnormalities and unusual thought content in research and clinic settings. The method provides a template for the information that should be gathered in relation to reported phenomena. It provides a standardised approach to assessment that assists the identification of changes over time and facilitates comparisons between centres.
