GMS Psycho-Social-Medicine

Corporate journal of German scientific societies in psychosocial medicine

ISSN 1860-5214

Welcome

GMS Psycho-Social-Medicine (P-S-M) is an open access e-journal, which publishes articles from the whole area of psychosocial research in medicine. It is edited on an interdisciplinary level by eleven German scientific societies from the areas of behavioral medicine, medical psychology and sociology, psychiatry, psychosomatic medicine, and psychotherapy. p-s-m offers all scientists from the field of psychosocial medicine the possibility to publish their research online. Only high-ranking and quality reviewed articles are accepted for publication.

Out of reasons of better organization and structure, the scientific societies, which carry P-S-M, have decided to close the journal GMS Psycho-Social-Medicine and to run it from 2014 on as a section in the open access journal GMS German Medical Science. New manuscripts should be submitted there.
