eISSN: 15413527 | ISSN: 00912174 | Current volume: 59 | Current issue: 3 Frequency: Bi-monthly

The International Journal of Psychiatry in Medicine bridges the gap between clinical psychiatry research and primary care clinical research.

Providing a forum for addressing:
The relevance of psychobiological, psychological, social, familial, religious, and cultural factors in the development and treatment of illness; the relationship of biomarkers to psychiatric symptoms and syndromes in primary care; research on dealing with the challenges of managing psychiatric syndromes in the setting of multiple medical co-morbidities; the impact of financial and technological changes in clinical practice on the broad scope of psychiatry health care; the significance and meaning of disease to the emotional and psychological state of individuals, and medical education research that helps prepare future practitioners to address these issues.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics.

The aim of The International Journal of Psychiatry in Medicine (IJPM) is to provide a forum where researchers, educators, and clinicians concerned with mental health, primary health care, and related aspects of medical care from around the world can educate each other and advance knowledge concerning psychobiological, psychosocial, biobehavioral, and social theory, methods, and treatment as they apply to patient care. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: psychobiological, psychological, social, religious, and cultural modifiers of illness; the minor and moderate mental disorders seen and treated in primary care medical practice; biomedical etiologies of mental health symptoms; research from successful collaborative, multidisciplinary models such as geriatrics; and health services research. IJPM bridges the gap between publications that adopt an almost exclusively research orientation and those that are more narrowly focused on clinical psychiatry, apart from the mainstream of primary care medicine. The Journal publishes original research, review articles, innovative clinical and educational programs, and illustrative case reports. People at all stages of career development, from student through seasoned professional, are encouraged to submit their work for editorial consideration.
