The Task Force on DSM-IV and members of the DSM-IV Work Groups have chronicled their efforts and the results in the DSM-IV Sourcebook, which documents the rationale and empirical support for the text and criteria sets presented in DSM-IV. This second of five volumes continues the DSM-IV literature reviews and summarizes the DSM-IV Work Group efforts that led to publication of the DSM-IV Options Book.

Each review contains the following six sections: Statement of the Issues -- explicitly outlines the issues addressed in the review; Significance of the Issues -- frames the importance of each issue and discusses its clinical and empirical significance; Methods -- documents the extent to which the reviews were systematic and comprehensive in their coverage of the literature; Results -- provides an objective and thorough summary of the findings most relevant to each issue; Discussion -- addresses the implications of the clinical research findings for DSM-IV; and Recommendations -- recommendations for DSM-IV based on the review of the literature.
