The IJBMC (International Journal of Body, Mind and Culture) is an international peer-reviewed interdisciplinary medical journal and a fully “online first” publication. Our publishing model—”continuous publication”— means that all articles appear on ijbmc.orj before being included in an issue of the print journal.

The website is updated weekly with the IJBMC’s latest theoretical and original research, case reports, education, news, and comment articles, as well as. All the IJBMC’s research is published with open access and up to 5000 word counts. There is an exception for theoretical paper that could be more than the word limitation of the journal.

The IJBMC’s mission is influence to lead the debate on health and to engage, inform, and stimulate doctors, researchers, and other health professionals in ways that will design more humanistic health promotion and clinical settings. We aim to help health system managers and therapists to make more integrative decisions.

The IJBMC team is based mainly in Germany (Albert- Ludwigse- Universität Freiburg Department of Psychosomatic Medicine) and Iran (Danesh-e Tandorosti Institute), although we also have editors elsewhere in Europe and in the US.
