About p-s-m


GMS Psycho-Social-Medicine (p-s-m) is an interdisciplinary specialty journal within German Medical Science (GMS), the portal and e-journal of the Association of the Scientific Medical Societies in Germany (AWMF). Developed in cooperation with the German Institute of Medical Documentation and Information (DIMDI) and the German National Library of Medicine (ZB MED) it offers open access to medical articles from all areas of psychosocial research in medicine that are high-ranking and quality reviewed. P-s-m offers the possibility to publish research results online. The project is sponsored by the German Research Foundation (DFG). Beyond the rapidity of publication and access, p-s-m will fully use the possibilities of electronic media. Possibilities will be created to upgrade the articles by linking them to high-resolution pictures, extensive charts, sounds, films, complete research databases or other data. The integration of national and international reference databases (e.g. MEDLINE) and the access to master files of publications allow for any extension of the information scope. In addition, the internet media enables the development of document-oriented alternatives to "impact-factor".

The archival storage on DIMDI's highly secure servers guarantees for permanent access and citeability.
