Traducción y adaptación de la Altman Self-Rating Mania Scale al ámbito español
The Altman Self-Rating Mania Scale is shown to be a reliable and valid self-rating instrument to assess the presence and intensity of manic symptoms and can also be a screening instrument.
The Patient Mania Questionnaire (PMQ-9): a Brief Scale for Assessing and Monitoring Manic Symptoms
The PMQ-9 demonstrated excellent test-retest reliability, concurrent validity, internal consistency, and sensitivity to change and was widely used and acceptable to patients and clinicians in a pragmatic clinical trial.
The Reliability of Self-assessment of Affective State in Different Phases of Bipolar Disorder
Bipolar patients in mania but not in depression did not reliably evaluate themselves with regard to their affective state, and the Analog Visual Mood Scale, a self-assessment tool to evaluate mood changes, was applied.
Initial Psychometric Properties of the Korean Altman Self-Rating Mania Scale: Preliminary Validation Study in a Non-Clinical Sample
Preliminary possibility that the K-ASRM can be utilized as self-rating tool for mania in Korea as well as future directions for further validation are suggested.
Reliability of Self-Reported Attachment Style in Patients With Severe Psychopathology
It is suggested that self-report measures might provide a reliable assessment of attachment style in patients with severe psychopathology, except for the most severely impaired patients.
Examining the Criterion Validity and Diagnostic Specificity of Self-Report Measures of Narcissism and Mania
Two measures—the ASRM and the HPS Social Vitality subscale—had weak, nonsignificant associations with interview ratings of manic episodes; these findings raise concerns regarding their validity as specific indicators of mania.
Measuring hypomania in the postpartum: a comparison of the Highs Scale and the Altman Mania Rating Scale
Although there is some evidence that the Highs Scale might be conservative, the AMRS likely overestimates hypomania in the postpartum, and Mania scales developed in bipolar disorder populations must be specifically validated for post partum use.
Assessment of mood states in patients receiving long-term corticosteroid therapy and in controls with patient-rated and clinician-rated scales.


The Altman Self-Rating Mania Scale
A Rating Scale for Mania: Reliability, Validity and Sensitivity
The MRS score correlated highly with an independent global rating, and with scores of two other mania rating scales administered concurrently, and also correlated with the number of days of subsequent stay in hospital.
Independent assessment of manic and depressive symptoms by self-rating. Scale characteristics and implications for the study of mania.
Bimodal distribution of scores of manic patients on the Well-Being and Depression Index subscales substantiated earlier findings that euphoric mood is not an essential feature of mania and proposed that variables related to activation level and not to mood state constitute the core characteristics of the manic syndrome.

The history, rationale, and development of the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-III-R (SCID) is described. The SCID is a semistructured interview for making the major Axis I DSM-III-R diagnoses.
A General Regression Methodology for ROC Curve Estimation
The new method provides a mechanism for pinpointing the effect that interobserver variability has on the ROC curve, and allows for the adjustment of ROC curves for temporal variation and case mix, and provides a way to assess the incremental diagnostic value of a test.
