Abstract

Several methodological issues of classification of psychiatric disorders are addressed. Beside some historical aspects and basic characteristics of the classification of mental disorders, the advantages and disadvantages of the syndromatological and nosological classifications are broadly described. Finally the current situation of the international standardisation of psychiatric classification and particuarly the improvement of reliability by using operationalised procedures is discussed.
